What is your favorite aspect of being an Influencer, and why?

I love meeting new people, working with different brands, and getting to experiment with new products I’ve never tried before. I also love getting to know my followers. It’s such a fun part of my job!


How did you build your unique style, brand, and following?

It may sound cliche, but I built my brand on who I am as a person. I used to be a huge tomboy in school and constantly had people making fun of me for it, so I chose to use blogging as my outlet to embrace and express myself. I wanted to bring something unique and that’s more “me” to Instagram, and I feel like a lot of people can relate to that.


Do you have a hobby or pass-time that your fellow CLEVERs don’t know about? Care to share?

I am a huge soap opera and cooking show enthusiast. Young and the Restless, Bold & Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, anything with Chef Ramsay – I’ve pretty much watched all of them, and have been for well over a decade!


You’ve worked on several CLEVER programs – did you have a favorite, and why?

The Decoy programs have definitely been my favorite! I am a wine connoisseur and Decoy is one of my favorite brands to drink. I also love how the brand really allowed me to be creative with my content.
