where did you grow up & what is your favorite thing about growing up there?

Belton, Texas; it is a small town, so it is quiet, peaceful and there's no traffic! I still love going to visit my parents there because it's nice to get out of the hustle and bustle of Houston now and then! My parents live on a lot of land, so it's nice and relaxing to go there and get a breath of fresh air.

alma mater: Texas A&M University

where do you draw inspiration from?

I love reading wedding blogs, photography blogs and wedding magazines. I could look at wedding photos for days!

why did you choose the wedding industry?

I've always loved the event industry and particularly weddings - helping couples make their big day unique to them and that much more special is what I love! And of course, the lovely Haley Hughes with En Vogue Events introduced me to Kristen. :)

what is your favorite thing about working in stationery?

I love seeing new trends and patterns. Because I don't have a design degree, I also love seeing how fonts alone can change the overall look and feel of stationery!

do you have any pets?

Yes! I got my cat Molly 4 years ago - I adopted her from an animal shelter in Austin. She is a Maine Coon/Tabby mix and is such a diva!

if had to choose one "block" font and one "script" font to write in for the rest of your life, what would they be?

That's a tough one... I love Trajan (boring!) and Feel but probably not together; but then my new favorite script font is Always - it looks so pretty and hand-written!

non-wedding related guilty pleasure?

I love scrap-booking, traveling, and eating anything sweet... especially chocolate! I enjoy watching chick flicks with my fabulous co-worker Kathryn and Glee!
