What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Free time, what’s that?! Just kidding. I love to play with my kids outdoors, I love to read, and I really enjoy being in the pool in the summertime. I enjoy traveling and cooking and going out to connect with girlfriends or family. I love movie nights with Justin and putting together puzzles while I listen to him play guitar after the kids have gone to bed. I’m happiest at home with a cup of coffee around my family.


Tell us about your family…

I am wife to Justin and mom to David, Luke, and Emily. We live near Raleigh, NC. David and Luke are 14 months apart and Emily is 2 years younger. They are all different with amazing personalities that I have the pleasure of seeing the older they get and I love being their mom.

Justin’s a fantastic dad and husband and runs his own drone flying business called Raleigh UAV.

How did you get started as a Content Creator?

I started over 10 years ago as a blogger and posting hair tutorial videos on Youtube and Pinterest. The job has changed SO much over the past several years and I’ve found that I have to be adaptable at every turn. If you’d like to know more about my career path feel free to read all about it here:

How do you organize your closets?

One. Take everything out of the space. 

Two. If you want to buy organizational containers, keep the receipt!

Three. Ask yourself, “if I needed to, could I replace this one day?”.


Are you originally from the South?

No, but I’ve lived in North Carolina since 2006. I’m originally from outside of Chicago, Illinois. I got weary of the winters and was craving a change, so I moved down south and never looked back!


Where do you live?

I live in Raleigh, NC. I’m originally from Illinois, and grew up near Chicago! I love the South, but the pizza here doesn’t compare to Chicago Style Pizza!
