Growing up in Riverdale Georgia I could have never imagined the career path that was waiting for me. It would have seemed like a life you could only imagine happens to other people. But I am living proof that the dreams you dare to dream can come true. I received my Masters degree at the University Of Virginia in Fine Arts in 1987 with an emphasis in Costume Design. I started my Costume Design career in Minneapolis then moved to New Zealand for 6 years then finally settled in LA.
In total I have over 25 years of Film, Commercial and TV credits to my name. Among them I was the Costume Designer for Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman for over 5 years. During that time I was lucky enough to get an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Costume Design for my work on the popular western series.
Today I am the Vice President of Design and Brand Management for Jane Seymour. I work in Malibu with Jane everyday working to enhance the multitude of licensees that we are involved with. One such company is KAY Jewelers and the Open Heart brand which I have been involved with since its inception.
I live in Calabasas CA with my daughter Gabriella and I am looking forward to sharing my secret passion with my friends and family from the deep south.
My father once told me if I could find a job doing something I would do for free that would be the key to success. He was right. Life is Good! Don’t let my secret out!
