A Nashville Native, my childhood memories involved playing A LOT of dress up, making patterns, and solving puzzles. Even to this day, my favorite movie is "Princess Diaries," because I love a good transformation story! I've always had the innate desire to help women identify their beauty.   

 In my younger years, I used to sketch gowns for my friends-- it was fun for me to see their faces when I'd reveal their "custom gowns". After graduating from the University of Alabama with a degree in Fashion Merchandising, I was able to spend time at the infamous Kleinfelds, where I was able to learn the ins and outs about the bridal industry. I then managed a local Nashville bridal boutique where I spent three and a half years before buying The Bride Room in 2016. It's been an amazing journey and I couldn't imagine doing anything else!
