I was born in North Carolina, but moved around a lot while growing up, living in South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. We lived in Virginia the longest and if you ask me where I’m from I will say Virginia; it’s also where my parents still live. I went to Virginia Tech and majored in Hospitality and Tourism Management. While doing an internship just outside Beaufort, SC I fell in love with the South Carolina coast. A year after graduating I found a resort Human Resources position in Hilton Head Island, SC. After living in Hilton Head for a year and half, I met my Joshua. He was living in Charleston, SC. We dated a little over a year long distance before I was offered a HR resort job in Charleston. Two days after I moved to Charleston he proposed! We were married October 18, 2008. Exactly two years and six months later, Anna arrived on April 18, 2011. When Josh got a promotion at work in April 2012 we moved to the Raleigh area and I started staying home with Anna. In March 2014 we welcomed Jacob and life has never been the same!
In my free time, I enjoy reading and running. I’m also Co-Coordinator for the non-profit Mended Little Hearts of the Triangle, which offers support to children born with heart defects and their families, serving Duke Children’s and NC Children’s Hospitals. This organization is very close to my heart since Anna was born with heart defects and has had two open heart surgeries in her short lifetime and faces more in the future.
I look forward to working with brides on their special day!
