I was born in Akron, Ohio and grew up in Westchester, New York in the 1970s.  Circa bellbottoms and huckapoo shirts.

After college, I worked in management consulting at Bain & Company, then switched my career track into  marketing.  A highlight:  launching the White Diamonds fragrance line and hanging out with Elizabeth Taylor and her 8th husband Larry Fortensky at the launch parties.

Many brands followed White Diamonds and consumer product marketing became my fabulous career.

Moving many times (Boston, Manhattan, Los Angeles, Charlotte, NC) and landing back in Westchester gave me some key survival skills and a BIG taste for travel.  I figured out how to decorate a house in record time so my family wouldn’t feel the upheaval of moving.  I also acquired a lot of DIY skills and decorating shortcuts to get what I wanted at a reasonable price.

We have two fabulous daughters – one in college and one working in marketing.  My protege!  We have an eleven year-old dachshund named Rhino who loves to pose in my blog photos.
