I grew up in Arizona where it is hot, dry and dirt is everywhere. I graduated from the University of Arizona and since moving away from my home state further east, it has been a proven challenge to try to find any TV channel or bar that will air my Wildcats (or any PAC 12 game for that matter). Four years ago I decided to take a leap out of my comfort zone in order to pursue my dream of working in fashion. Since college I knew I always wanted to come to the fashion haven they call NYC but made a pit stop along the way and lived in Chicago for two years before ultimately moving to New York City two years ago. I have to say that living in new cities where I had to start my life completely over from scratch has been one the greatest experiences of my life. Currently I am a online merchandiser for retailer where I to get to shop and play with clothes all day (hard life I know). I have to laugh and smile everyday and I surround myself with people who will do just that. I love to spend time with my friends and family and being an Arizona girl at heart, I love to be out in the sun with a vodka diet coke in my hand.
