Tell me about you: Where are you from, how old are you?

I'm 28 and have lived in MD for most of my life. I lived in California for about a year and a half to attend fashion school at FIDM, but that's about it.

What do you do?

Right now I'm working full-time on my Love,Cortnie bags.

When did you know that Fashion was something you were passionate about?

I always knew I was passionate about fashion I just didn't know that I wanted to pursue something fashion-related. It wasn't until someone asked me if there was anything that I wanted to do, what would it be. That's when it hit me and I immediately decided that I wanted to go to fashion school after I graduated from college.

What has been your biggest accomplishment to date?

My bags, of course! I learned to sew at the end of August 2011 and opened an Etsy shop a week later. I was just doing it for fun and possibly some extra money. Nothing major. It's been about 6 months and the response has been overwhelming! My bags have basically taken over my life.

What advice do you have for others aspiring to do what you do?

Just do it! You'll never know until you try something. If someone told me I'd be where I am today I wouldn't have believed them.

 Life quote: If there was one quote that summed up your view on life what would it be?

Does anyone remember when the CoCo Chanel Lifetime movie came out?
It's actually a quote from that movie. It's "risk...is what life's all about". Such a true statement.

How can we stay connected with you?
