I'm one of the lucky ones - I get to do what I love! I've been working in the makeup industry since 2000 and I am truly passionate about what I do. I love connecting with people from all walks of life.
My experience are broad and varied! I started my career in the makeup industry by selling cosmetics at various stores like Sephora, Nordstrom, Origins, and The Body Shop. I went out on my own in 2011 and since then, have been published in My Wedding Magazine, MN Bride, The Knot MN, MNHS billboards, and Style Me Pretty. I am certified in bridal, print, airbrush, and light SFX from Faces, Etc in Mpls, MN. I also hold 2 BAs from St. Kate's (Written Communications and English).
Accolades include Wedding Wire Couples Choice Award (2014, 2015, and 2017) and The Knot Best 0f (2017). Check out my reviews on:

When I'm not working, you can find me chasing my 2 little boys around (they keep me REALLY busy, but I really wouldn't have it any other way). I volunteer for Dress for Success and A Night to Remember: Special Needs Prom annually. I love coffee (like, a LOT), craft beer, and Thai food. Gardening and live music feed my soul and I am lucky enough to be married to my best friend, Chris. We live in a small, 97 year old house in St. Paul and we love city-livin'! My favorite Netflix show is Grace and Frankie, and I hardly wear makeup.
