Growing up on a farm in Iowa has always been a huge source of inspiration and pride for me. I started collecting vintage while studying photography at college and I'm a nostalgia junkie - I love old photos, old clothes, old stories, you name it! Preservation is my love but I also have two small dogs Arlo + Remy who I couldn't live without. Happiness to me is time spent making memories with my closest friends and family.

My love of vintage started from a childhood collection of ‘70s music that has kept me inspired to this day. From there, my closet has seen some pretty bold moves. I have an apartment in the east village, where the majority of my period-piece film watching happens, and where I sometimes spend time painting. My mother's wisdom: Food tastes better when shared. In my opinion: Bathing is best in the sun.

I am happiest in 85-degree weather sitting outside during golden hour listening to Kali Uchis. I feel the most inspired when discovering new music. My daily uniform is always a variation of distressed vintage jeans with an oversized button-up. I love that I get to work with so many creative women that share my love for fashion.
I live in a beautiful brick apartment with my husband and cat, in Des Moines. When I'm not working with Preservation I'm working with my husband at our design & web studio. I've worked 10 years in the retail industry and now help clients with their start-up retail businesses. If I'm not at my desk you can find me traveling. It's my true love.
I am a mother, wife, a work-in-progress and a self-appointed doctor of all things beauty. A strong advocate for setting affirmations, I believe there is no reason to look backwards when you have so much to look forward to!
