ONCE UPON A TIME
a girl got lost on her way to becoming an artist and found herself climbing to the top of the ladder in corporate America. One day years later, she looked around and realized she was chasing the wrong dream, and went in search of her own.
A manager of a highly skilled global marketing team, I had the dream career. Yet, what I was doing just didn’t make me feel whole, and I missed creating something beautiful with value beyond a great ROI for a corporation. When my daughter was born, I realized I have a heart for caring for children and for making them feel seen and loved in a way that was sometimes missing in my own childhood.
Living the life of a busy executive, my parents relocated us across the country several times before I was ten. Through the changes, the things we adorned our house with and the pieces that traveled with us from place to place became my true home, as I knew buildings were temporary. I am passionate about making each child understand how special they are through my photographs with finished artwork to remind them daily of their importance.
