A little more about me…
I've always been a multi-passioned creative and have never quite been able to define myself as one thing in particular. Over time, I was conditioned to believe this was a flaw, and have been told countless times throughout my career that I needed to narrow down my interests. But the truth is if I had taken that advice, I wouldn't be able to do what I do today. I'm thankful for those big dreams and all the opportunities I've been afforded to chase after them.
For most of my life—seriously, since age seven—I wanted to be an Interior Designer. That's what I studied in college, and after graduation I spent the next five years in the architecture and interior design world.
Feeling like I was ready for a new creative challenge, I transitioned back into my retail roots where I spent the next seven years helping run a small biz retail shop as the Creative Director and Regional Manager.
In that time, I helped take the company through expansion and extensive brand growth, opening multiple new locations, and creating and growing a sizable following. This season of my life allowed me to utilize my interior design background while cultivating new skills in leadership and management, team development, sales and marketing, visual merchandising, and establishing operational business systems to enhance productivity and efficiency.
Retail Therapy is the culmination of all that ambition, curiosity, the struggles, and the victories that have shaped my journey. It’s also a direct response to all the guidance and education I wished I had during my time in retail. My desire is to pass on those lessons learned to someone who needs them like I did, and for us to all keep discovering and growing together.
