YOUR LOCATION:
Kokomo, IN

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.

YOUR STORY: 
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!
.
SMELLS IN YOUR LIFE: 
I love the smell of mint, citrus, and anything light and airy.

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.

YOU AND MAISON BERGER: 
The lampe is definitely my favorite ritual! I love that it actually purifies the air in addition to  smelling amazing. I’ve only tried the Imperial Green Tea fragrance from The Jonathan Muse Collection thus far, but I’m definitely hooked!

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.
