YOUR HEART'S HOME:
My heart’s home is probably here in Indiana, especially during the fall with all of the outdoor smells - rain, fallen leaves, the smoke of bonfires … Other than the fact that it’s beautiful in Indiana that time of year, I’m not exactly sure why, but it will always be my favorite place and time.
I was born and raised in the Midwest. I’ve always been interested in history, art, interior design, and architecture. I believe that my love for those things combined with modeling and traveling extensively throughout my teens and 20s made me who I am today. Additionally, I have degrees in history and political science from Indiana University and an MA in education from USC. Those have helped too!
YOUR HOME INTERIOR ROUTINE:
I have two fragrance routines. I always light a candle on the coffee table in the morning to help set the tone for a positive day. I also light my Lampe Berger in my bedroom as I get ready for bed in the evening to help me relax and to purify the air for a good night's sleep.

YOUR MOST VIVID OLFACTIVE MEMORY:
I got a fragranced lotion from my mom for Christmas one year when I was probably about 12 years old. Whenever I smell anything that resembles the scent, it immediately takes me back to my bedroom that year on Christmas morning, slathering myself with my new lotion. Funny how your mind makes associations that way!
YOUR LIFE PHILOSOPHY:
Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
