When did you begin your career as an influencer/model?
I started doing Instagram full-time back in 2016, but I’ve been documenting my outfits since 2011 as a hobby.
Where is your favorite place you have ever traveled to?
Hawaii is one of my favorite places to travel to. I love going to their beautiful beaches and the food is just amazing. I always have the best and most relaxing time there.
City getaway or tropical beach getaway?
I’m a city girl through and through but will always choose a tropical beach getaway.
What was the highlight of your time in Tulum with Modeliste? Any fun stories you would like to share?
One of the highlights of our trip is going to the cenote and jumping in the water! It was so fun and felt so refreshing.
How do you balance your work life and your personal life?
I create a work-life balance by making sure I’m logged off on certain hours, as well as “off’ days like the weekend or 1-2 days out of the week where I can unplug.
What is your favorite makeup trend right now?
Sculpted brows, sun-kissed cheeks, and glossy lips! These trends together just make an effortlessly fresh look.
Have you always wanted to be in this industry? If not, what did you think you would be doing instead?
I’ve definitely always wanted to work in the fashion industry, either in PR or marketing. However, I also love the idea of starting my own brand!
What makes you feel confident?
I feel the most confident by expressing myself through fashion, but I also find confidence by practicing self-care and daily gratitude.
What was your highlight of 2022?
The highlight of my year was getting engaged and turning 30!
Where do you want to travel next?
I would love to travel to Greece and Italy.
