What is your favorite thing about Houston?
I moved from Maine to Houston in 2000 and it didn’t take long to fall in love with this city. I love the accessibility, the culture and arts, and the many beautiful parks. You can reach your true potential here, Houston is a bubble of opportunity. I never thought I would stay, but now I never want to leave.

Thoughtful, fun, efficient. I’m a planner.
Where in Houston can you be found on a Friday night?
Friday family night watching movies with my husband and three daughters.

A big watch and flashy earrings
Where do you get your style inspiration?
My style is all over the place, I can’t point to one designer or celebrity. I really just flip through Instagram fashion posts and choose which looks excite me—and even that changes on the daily.
What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Live with purpose. I try to find joy in everything I do, even weekly grocery shopping!
What was your favorite Tootsies look?
A gorgeous gown by Brazilian designer PatBo that I wore to chair the Mercury gala this year. It was adorned with with thousands of sequins and feathers, and I was lucky enough to be the only person to wear this gown until it goes into production in September!
How do you feel about being featured in Fresh Faces of Fashion?
I am honored to be included in such a fun community-supporing event! It was a journey to get to the photo shoot. I spend summers in Sebago Lake, Maine and made arrangements to come back just for this photo shoot. My flight back to Houston for the shoot was cancelled last minute so I took an Uber to Boston to make the flight back home, where I took car service straight to Tootsies—just in time for my fitting! I was so relieved to have made it.
