I am a professional clothing and footwear designer who has worked for major brands sold in your local Macy's, Dillard's, Khol's and more. I have also been the head of my own clothing line for over 10 years. I have been sewing since the age of 10 years old and studied at Fashion Industries High School & Savannah College of Art & Design.

I have been a designer participant in NY Fashion Week, Louisiana Fashion Week, and more. I have worked with local designers to help develop their collections and continue to be a design consultant. I run a concierge tailoring business while continuing to work with private clients and teach sewing.

I can't wait to help your sewing dreams come true!
