A Myrtle Beach, South Carolina native graduated from Clemson University in 2000 with a degree in Textiles. Through her studies, she learned extensively about interior design and the aesthetics of fabric. Throughout her life, she always knew she would become an entrepreneur. She first came to Jackson, Wyoming in the summer of 1999 for an interior design internship. She also met her future husband, Henry, that summer and had fallen in love with the Jackson area, knowing she would return one day. After graduation, she returned to Jackson and worked for various designers and retailers in the area as she prepared for opening her own store. In April of 2006, Festive Living opened its doors in Victor, Idaho just over the hill from Jackson, where Hayden, Henry, their twin boys and their dog, Heli now reside.
