In the Fall of 2016, my Dad finally retired from owning his Insurance Agency after 50 years. He and my Mom wanted to move to Charleston and live the rest of their days by the beach. We had been vacationing here for years, knew the area quite well, and frankly, fell in love with the city. Who doesn't love it here? I'm the youngest daughter, and my Dad asked me to move here with him so he had one of his girls near him as he aged. He said he wanted this "selfishly".. but I didn't see it that way. I asked my boyfriend if he'd move with us, and here we are! We quit our jobs, and moved to Mount Pleasant without a plan or any idea of what the future would hold. Moving here from Syracuse, NY was one of the best decisions I've ever made. There's just something so freeing about living by the ocean, and having sunshine all year round. I felt so stuck back in NY, and now I'm slowly but surely discovering my true passions and making them come to life here in Charleston. My little family of 4 (My boyfriend Tim, Boxer dog Beau, and Calico cat Reese) have created a home we love and are excited for all of the adventures to come as we continually become more of a "local".
I currently work as the Director of Marketing and Events for a local business. I graduated with a degree in Communication & the Arts specializing in Graphic Design. I have a strong passion for photography, cooking, interior design, and being creative in any capacity. I can't draw for shit, however. In my spare time, you will either find me at the beach, doing something design related, and spending quality time with my little family. Highly fond of a good cocktail, laughing, and exploring Charleston. I'm unfiltered, confident in myself as a strong woman (continually working on self love though), and sometimes care too much.
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
