When I am not designing, I probably have my nose in a book, am planning my next trip on Pinterest, or binging the Real Housewives.

I am a (mostly) self-taught graphic and web designer from Los Angeles, California. I first fell in love with all things design at a young age. I couldn't get enough of fashion magazines, redesigning my Tumblr blog, and bingeing HGTV shows whenever I got the chance. There is something so magical about the way design can make you feel but also the way we can use it to express ourselves. After an 8-year career in fashion, I decided to take everything I knew about business, design, and digital marketing, to start my own business designing intentional, captivating, and elevated brands and websites. Today I work with incredible female founders who value a successful career and living a beautiful full life.

living in los angeles, with a successful career in the fashion industry. it was truly a childhood dream come true . . . 

I have always loved design: fashion, interior, graphic, architecture, etc.  Since I was a little girl, I  dreamed of working in fashion one day. I asked for fashion magazines every chance I got and dreamed of going to fashion school from a very young age.  In college, I studied both Merchandise Product Development and Business Administration, learning everything from trend forecasting to brand marketing and digital design.  After graduation I landed my dream job in technical design at REVOLVE, a large clothing company based in Los Angeles.  I spent the next almost four years as an Apparel Technical Designer climbing the corporate ladder one perfectly-fitted dress at a time. 

let's go back, back to the beginning

my story

and everything changed . . . 

2020  was going to be my year. I had just been promoted to a role I had been working for since my first day on the job, I would be managing my own team and my own clothing line. I was up next for a work trip to India and would finally be taking the trip to Europe I dreamed of since I was a young girl. Quite literally overnight everything changed. I was indefinitely furloughed along with 90% of my department.  Trips were canceled and my former life truly ended in an instant. Maybe this sounds familiar to you, I have met so many people who share a very similar story.

Here's the thing, I had known for a while that I wasn't feeling fulfilled in my career anymore. I didn't have a good work/life balance and I put my other passions (like starting a business and travel) on the back burner. I allowed my fears to keep me playing small and stay in the comfortability that my 9-5 provided. But I was tired of watching people live their lives while I wasn't really living mine.  It was in the next couple of months that I could no longer wear busy-ness like a badge of honor and took the steps needed to so I could live a fulfilled life and do the kind of work that no longer has me living for the weekend. 

then came 2020

the new beginning

So here I am, a twenty-something with an 8-year career in fashion, at a crossroads with where I was heading in my career.  I took a good hard look at my education, experience, passion, and skillset and decided to take everything I knew about business, design, and digital marketing, to start my own business. A business where I could connect and collaborate with female entrepreneurs, creating authentic, alluring, and meaningful online presences that reflect their brand, values, and connects with their community. 

I now work with incredible female founders who are the CEOs of their own business (and life!). My client roster is full of inspiring women just like you who value having a successful career and  living a beautiful full life.

Prior to my website strategy session with Christiana, I felt so overwhelmed and out of my depth with how to create a website that reflected my brand and content needs. Christiana was an absolute miracle worker, helping me to solve many big issues all while teaching me the skills I needed to successfully navigate my edits later on.
