My background is… I come from a big, awesome family of 6 and I’m close to each of them. I graduated from the University of Kansas with my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. I have always loved kids, planning, organizing and finding outlets for creativity. Until my own wedding, I never realized those passions could be applied in a whole new way! Ten years later, I still love being part of this ever-changing world. I never leave home without… setting the alarm. I watch way too many murder mystery shows! My signature style includes… well it depends on the day you catch me! My “mom” uniform consists of a baseball hat, athletic clothes, and tennis shoes. When quite literally taking off that hat, you can usually find me in bright colors, big earrings, and a “go to” red lip! A typical day for me looks like… I like to start my day giving something back to myself with an early morning trip to the gym, followed by a frenzy of getting my four kids up, dressed, fed and out the door for school! I make every bed everyday. I get myself ready, snag a cup of coffee, and I’m off to the office. Every day at Kate + Company is full of something new - which I love! I’m rarely ever behind my computer all day as I thrive on interacting with clients and being on the move. When I’m hosting… I love any excuse to set a festive table or plan a party. In my own home, you will always find candles lit, music to make everything merrier, and my signature margarita mix! Currently reading… Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. I love anything from Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club!
