She was named Orange County’s Best Personal Shopper by Modern Luxury in 2019 and was recently featured on CNN for a segment on personal styling filmed at South Coast Plaza. An alumna of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, she has done corporate styling for Nike, Vanity Fair, NFL, L’Oreal, Google, Hyatt Hotel Group, and others.

She thrives on helping all clients feel confident in their wardrobe and image.
The season’s holiday collections at South Coast Plaza are extra sparkly with beautiful jewels and sequins. I’m also loving the pink trend that’s still going strong. If you are a little shy to try the embellishments of the season, I recommend adding a sparkly piece like an accessory to a classic ensemble for a festive look.
