I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from Bridgewater College in 2011. And I had no idea what I was gonna do with it. I began working in Admissions for a career college, and became the youngest Director of Admissions for my division. And while that might look super cool on my resume, I wasn't happy. In fact, I was weary in every way & questioning everything.
"Was this what I was supposed to do for the next 40 years?"
After lunch breaks ugly crying in my car, and late nights blog stalking women I admired, I knew I'd had enough. My Cubicle Era had to end.
I launched my first business, Dear Sweetheart Events, in October of 2013. Pressing "submit" on that LLC application was the craziest, scariest thing I have ever done. Once I did, I took a giant leap into the small biz world. It wasn't pretty or romantic or styled. It was messy. And hard.
And I loved every hot second.
10 months into owning Dear Sweetheart Events, Creative at Heart Conference was born.
Another 9 months after that (a whopping 17 months total of entrepreneurial life), I walked out of my full-time job for the very last time - carrying a box of momentous & wearing the biggest smile.
I said goodbye to blazers & heels,
& hello to three-day-in-a-row leggings & dry shampoo.
Fast forward to 2017, and I've got 50 weddings, 25+ styled shoots, 6 conferences, and over 500 blog posts under my belt. I've coached over 60 women one-on-one and watched big, beautiful & bold things happen.
I'm a believer, wife, & mama to 2 babies I'll meet in heaven. I'm a certified "dog-mom" in every cliche way & marrying my HS sweetheart was the best decision I ever made.
Thanks for stopping by my slice of heaven! I'm glad you're here!
