My unconventional career path has surprised me every step of the way and I feel so fortunate for that. After spending ten years in the television industry as a wardrobe stylist and costume designer, I decided to take a sharp turn and begin a career in community relations. The two worlds may not seem linked at first thought, but for me, the common thread has been connecting with others in order to bring a creative vison or message to life.
As a costume designer, it was my job to “get to know” the character an actor was portraying, to understand their story. In my current role I find myself doing the same, only this time it is with real people, real stories. It is my goal to establish an authentic connection with the audience, resulting in a lasting impact.
