I'm a Central Florida native and graduate of Rollins College. After college I pursued a career in the wedding industry and quickly fell in love.  In 2008, after the birth of my first daughter, I decided to open my own wedding cake business, called The Sugar Suite. For 8 years I got to work alongside talented creatives. My staff and I produced and delivered some of the prettiest cakes out there focusing on clean lines and sugar flowers.

In 2012, the bakery was nominated one of the “Top 100 Wedding Cake Bakeries in the US” by the prestigious BRIDES magazine. In 2013, I was floored to be chosen as one of Orlando Business Journals “40 Under 40” which lists the 40 most successful people in Central Florida under the age of 40.

In 2014, my second daughter was born and the shop was at the pinnacle of revenue. It was around this time I took a hard look at my work-life balance.  I had the worlds best staff ......but wedding cakes are hard y’all!  Making pretty things for brides is a dream, but the long hours and enormous pressure just never got easier. In 2016 I made the tough decision to close the shop.

2017-2019 I worked as an artist and illustrator for The Chalk Shop which crafts custom wedding signage and art for weddings and luxury events. In 2019, after the birth of my third daughter I decided to pursue a career in fine art.  Each pregnancy has resulted in a major shift in my career, making me more and more brave.
