Tell us a little about your story and your purpose.

I'm an interior designer, sketchbook artist, adventurer and businesswoman
My purpose is to make my clients dreams a reality and when I'm not doing that, I love to travel and learn about new cultures, sketch, and make people laugh.

Who are the women that have made the biggest impact on you and your journey so far? And what have you learned from them?

First and foremost my beautiful mama who encouraged my dreams and creativity throughout my life, several career changes, world adventures and crazy schemes. Never once did she not believe in me.

Suzie Beirne, my interior design mentor, an amazing trail blazing designer who 26 years ago taught me to think outside the box, Bigger and Brighter.
Eadie Founder Trudie Cox, and my incredible tribe of strong gifted girlfriends,I'm so lucky to be surrounded and supported by so many amazing women. I feel truly blessed.

What does International Women's Day mean to you?
To acknowledge the extraordinary achievements by women around the world.

What is your hope for women and girls in the future?
My hope for women and girls in the future is for every female to live without fear, to live in a world of equal opportunity, to be healthy, to be strong, to be accepted, to be acknowledged, to be appreciated and to be loved.

If you could have told your younger self anything, what would it have been?

I'm pretty happy with my path, but if I could pass on any words of wisdom, they would be to live a life that has no regret.
Trust your gut and forge ahead as dreams do come true.
