What’s a typical day like for you?
After my family leaves for school and work, my typical day consists of fulfilling orders and sewing new garments to model on my blog. I often have a candle burning and a Youtube sewing tutorial playing in the background as I work.
I love social media so I take very frequent Instagram and Facebook breaks to like, share, comment and interact with my friends and followers.
What future plans do you have for your business?
I love helping people feel good in their clothing I am continuously developing my skills to be able to offer more custom designed garments. I also would love to teach and motivate young women to create on their own.
What in your life is really important to you?
It’s very important for me to be a positive influence in everyone that I meet. If I can change the viewpoint of an individual to see the good in a situation I feel like I have done something amazing!

I would love to be remembered as a fun spirited go getter. Where nothing stands in my way. I absolutely love making people laugh and it empowers me to make people feel empowered.
What role does fashion play in your life?
Fashion plays a huge role in my life. I believe that fashion is the outward expression of are character and our clothes should be a reflection of this. I love when women discover their best features and accentuate them through their clothing
What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective?
I love that the designers are Canadian and at some point all had/have a dream to create just like myself. Its so amazing to know that the designer are accessible. How many opportunities do you have to meet the person who made your outfit?
What do you have that you want to promote?
Oh wow! What a great opportunity! Well I have this fabulous fun little business I started called Urban Sockology. Urban Sockology is a collection of foot apparel created with the entire family in mind. I have already introduced fleece foot apparel for men, women and children. The cutest booties will be available for babies and small children in early December with larger sizes released in the following weeks.
In the spirit of showing off also maintain a blog page that shares various aspects of my life as they relate to sewing. The site showcases many of my favorite fashion makes. The blog posts offer sewing motivation, and explanations on how I created the featured look.
Is there anything else we should know about you?
Very recently I had a full time career as a legal assistant at an insurance defense law firm. I got tired of being confined to a cubicle covered in paperwork.
I finally resigned when they wouldn’t let me bring my sewing machine to work. Since then it’s been a life of pretty fabric, cool designs and me taking charge of my life in order to follow my passion.
Where can people find you on social media?
As previously mentioned I love social media and can be found on the following platforms:
