Two of my biggest joys in life are mentoring and helping others. I created this website as a source for inspiration to share the things I love and have learned. This is a platform for women focused on career and fashion. Time and time again, we are told to suppress our femininity in order to be successful. I believe the opposite. Our femininity is an asset and we can both embrace our femininity and be successful. In time, you’ll find everything from resume building, networking and interview tips to fashion inspiration & beyond.
Currently, I just graduated from Columbia Business School and I am the co-founder of a women’s workwear brand where our goal is to provide chic and affordable workwear to all women. Prior to business school, I worked in sales & marketing and I earned my BA at Cornell University (Go Big Red!). While New York has been a big part of my life, I grew up in Houston, Texas and still consider myself a Houstonian. At Cornell, student government took up most of my free time. I had the great fortune to be President of my class at Cornell for all four years in college and truly enjoyed working for the benefit of my peers. I care deeply about female empowerment, inspiring others, public service and I am always looking for new ways to get involved in my community.
My hope is that this platform will empower you to be the best version of yourself. I hope you find sources of inspiration here for your daily life or nuggets of wisdom to grow personally and professionally. We all have highs and lows, aspirations, dreams and insecurities. Whether it’s a job well done, an outfit that makes you feel great or a few days to disconnect- sometimes a little bit of encouragement or inspiration can let us fly.
I love connecting with new people. I welcome your feedback and want to get to know you as you get to know me.
