As a young girl, struggling with acne, I was insecure within my own skin. During the seventh grade, I got my makeup done because I was a junior bridesmaid for my cousin's wedding. The shocking reveal afterwards moved me. I felt beautiful for the first time, and at that point I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I wanted to give this feeling back to others. 

Since 2017, I have worked with many women with differing skin tones, and textures to enhance their already-existing natural beauty. The best part about the MUA life is that I get to be a part of peoples’ special days, and know that I made them feel beautiful on those days. 

Currently, I work towards a bachelors degree in Entrepreneurship at the University of Delaware. With hopes of combining my degree and passion, I envision myself as the CEO of a beauty company in the future. I chose to include this in my bio so, for those of you reading this, can hold me accountable. 

Fun fact: I probably have more “crazy cat lady” mugs than anyone I know.
