Tell us a little about yourself

I’ve spent the past six years working in corporate retail as both a buyer for women-geared stores like Francesca’s and Express.  Now, I work on the vendor side for Pinch Provisions. I love the community that social media has the ability to build. True to my retail roots, I have a cat named Zara. I truly believe that when women support women, incredible things can happen.

What’s your favorite thing to create?

A brand vision.

How do you get ideas for your projects?

Usually from a need for a gift! I can’t find what I’m looking for, so I create it!

Have you always been crafty? If not, when did it start?

I’ve always been imaginative but my craftiness definitely blossomed more in my 20’s.

Tell us a bit about your family! We want to know about you!!

I’m the oldest child in the family, raised by New Yorkers.

What will you be writing about for Girl Meets Party?

I will definitely be writing about wedding planning since I’m two weeks into being engaged and it’s already consuming my life!  I already have our venue and photographer booked – I’m a complete planner!!

What are you most excited for in the new year?

Getting married to my best friend :).
