Born and raised a New Yorker, and in 2011 me and my family settled in Frederick. I have a passion for the DIY trade and I receive my therapy walking thru the floral- garden department at my local Lowes. When home, its a house of buzz, as I'm surrounded by 3 kids and my visiting grandson, and 2 Goldens. Its the simple chaos that I truly love.
I am recently retired and spend most of my time socializing with friends, hiking with my senior dog, playing tennis and biking. I love traveling and exploring new places and cultures with my husband of 35 years. I really look forward to helping brides at Fairytale Brides each week and my guilty pleasure is watching Say Yes to the Dress!
I have been told that I am energetic. I prefer to think of it as passionate. Bridal styling and consultation is my passion. After working in the industry in Massachusetts for many years, my family relocated to Virginia in 2021. When I arrived I already accepted a full-time job; however, I still wanted to remain in the bridal industry. When I found Fairytale Brides I knew I had found the perfect fit. My hilarious and wonderful husband and I have 2 children, one who attends Penn State and the other who will attend Bridgewater College in the Fall. Neither of them is even slightly interested in bridal or fashion; however, they think it’s really cool that I pursue my dream, and I’m hoping that influences their choices as they go through life. I should also mention that I have a cat because I will try to work that into any conversation.
I am happily retired, and I love traveling, volunteering, hiking, and playing with my grand-dog. I also spend time studying Japanese.
