I am a native Vermonter that was introduced to the Southwestern part of the country at age twelve when my family moved to Arizona in search of new opportunities. Living out West, I discovered newfound diversities in culture, big city curiosities, the wonders of the desert, and exciting new (and spicy!) cuisines. It was also there, that I thrust myself into the arts in every possible way that I could.
I’ve always had a strong artistic background and a desire to create! I am a shower-singer, a Friday-night-painter, home chef, thrift-shopping extraordinaire, and feline-enthusiast. After obtaining my degree in apparel design from FIDM in Los Angeles, I went on to pursue a career that utilizes my talents in merchandising, creative writing, photography, and customer service, with a focus on reducing waste within the fashion industry.
I followed my heart in love, which brought me back to my hometown in northern Vermont, where my husband and I bought our first fixer-upper, and live happily with our spunky kitty. I own and operate an online Vintage store (www.spotlight-vintage.com), through which I am able to combine my love for travel, costuming, and curating vintage fashion.

I joined the EWC team in 2019 where I am honored to offer up my creative skills to help these intelligent and inspiring folks prove that it truly is still an amazing world out there!
