Stylist & Mom

Tell us about your crew

I am a mom to one sassy, fashionista in training, Makenna age 2.

How do you take your coffee?

Preferably WARM (the heating up the same cup of coffee multiple times before you can finish it mom struggle is real) with almond milk and one Sugar in the Raw.

Where are you from, where do you live now?

I grew up on Long Island, NY, spent 10 years in NYC and now am back in the burbs in Westchester County, NY.

Describe your personal style

Trendy yet simplistic with splash of boho. (Comfy is also key!)

What inspires you?

Music and film have always brought me inspiration throughout my life and career, I worked in the entertainment industry prior to joining Mac & Mia and have always been a pop culture junkie! And of course my ultimate style muse is my daughter Makenna.

Where is your happy place?

One the beach in the Hamptons – my husband and I spent our first summer as a couple out there, and now we love to share our happy place with our daughter as well.

Best style tip for children & parents?

Pick your battles! Let them wear the Peppa Pig Pjs to bed and that stylish red dress Mommy found that reminds them of Peppa’s during the day. Comfy styles are always key and accessories are like treats – let them express themselves with their favorite little extras.

What's your perfect Saturday?

Being with my husband and daughter – doesn’t really matter what we are doing as long as I get to sleep until 7 am 🙂 If I can squeeze in a spin class or some shopping, thats always a bonus too!

What does "doing it all" look like in your world?

I don’t believe there is any such thing as doing it all or having it all. I think as a parent, you just have to do your best and that could look a little different every day!

Why do you love working for Mac & Mia?

I was a customer of Mac & Mia before I became a stylist and I feel so lucky to be part of a brand I admired and was such a genuine fan of prior to joining the company. Its exciting to be part of a growing company with other passionate individuals who are the very best at what they do!. Styling little ones is what I love to do and I am just so happy I get to that as a job!
