My Story

After living in bustling cities like Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Los Angeles, my fiancé and I decided to settle in Santa Barbara, where we've fallen in love with the stunning scenery and enjoy spending our days outdoors or playing fetch at the beach with our chihuahua mix, lovingly named Pig. In my free time, I love being with family and friends, roller skating, and learning Dutch. I firmly believe in the importance of nurturing our own happiness to better serve those around us as prioritizing self-care and joyous pursuits allows us to authentically show up for others in meaningful ways.
