I come from a small town, in Griswold, CT and currently live in my cozy, modern-country vibin' home in the city of Providence, RI.

I grew up participating in sports all year round and performing in High School Musicals; so I may sing a little jam, talk in a funny accent, or balance on fence, to ensure I get the best shot of you!

I'm one of 5 children and plan on having a family of that size myself!
It could end up being more if they keep coming out this cute (haha), but my home will forever be a revolving door for more kids + people who need a safe place to go and be loved.

So who knows, you may be at my dinner table one day, as many of my clients have become dear friends of mine!

Jeremy & I met in NOLA, rebuilding homes that were damaged by hurricane Katrina in 2012. We became best friends through our love for God, fitness, & our long talks. Eventually I realized building a life together would be a great adventure. He just wished I realized that sooner!

Of course my favorite thing is my family! They are the reason that I work hard for doing the things that I love and try to live this life with intention for my God-given purpose.

I absolutely love eating my sushi, but I'd be equally as excited for some Indian saag, African -dodo (plantains), Tofu Pad Thai. or some nim chow. So grateful the city I live in is filled with places to get these yummy foods!

give me all the sushi!

This bouquet right here just speaks to my floral heart! Soft, light colors and lots of falling greens; my FAVORITE!

I think a good cappuccino goes hand in hand when it comes to planning and accomplishing your goals. Bring on the inspiration!

And some pretty, inspirational notebooks to dream in

I'm a firm believer that the less things you have, the more time you get to spend on the things you really love.
Clean = Peace. 

I love getting rid of all the "stuff"

I was feeling so great after my second delivery with my daughter Grace that I went to the beach 4 days after her delivery!

nothing is better than unplugged summer evenings at the beach

A great way to provide yourself with so many great vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that are needed to stay healthy.

This was when my hubby and I went away on a kidless - anniversary vacation in Los Cabos. It was absolutely AMAZING!

NOTHING LIKE WAKING UP IN THE STILLNESS OF THE MORNING TO CATCH A SUNRISE
