WOMAN ON A MISSION 

My mission is to inspire and motivate those around me to love ourselves and pursue our passions. I focus on cultivating confidence, passion, & style (in myself and others) through my thrift shop, style consulting, resources like my blog, body positive course, and goal setting workbook, and with body positive trainings with Body Brave Consulting. My current focus is expanding my resale shop into a brick-and-mortar space! 

WHAT I CARE ABOUT MOST

People loving themselves, equity, social justice, fighting fatphobia, resisting diet culture, the interconnectedness of us all, speaking up, intersectional feminism, global awareness, creating opportunities, racial justice, women supporting women, young people succeeding personally & academically, values and actions aligning, the belief that love always wins.
