WOMAN ON A MISSION 

My mission is to inspire and motivate women 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, through trainings as part of my newest endeavor - Body Brave Consulting

WHAT I CARE ABOUT MOST

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

BACKGROUND & EDUCATION 

I call Minnesota home and have also lived in Germany, Texas, and New Orleans. I studied German & Global Studies at Hamline University in St. Paul, MN. I then earned a Master’s Degree in Training & Development from Texas A&M University-Commerce and have spent my professional life working at colleges & universities. Currently, I live in St. Paul, Minnesota.

HOW I PREFER TO SPEND MY TIME 

Traveling, journaling, talking about things that matter, netflix, podcasts, zumba, spending time with those I love, social media, working on my passion projects, thrifting, singing in the car, & finding the elusive perfect balance of alone time and social time.
