“Assist, research, and learn. Experience and the network you build is key.”

What do you do and what led you to this career?

I'm a Wardrobe Stylist. I've worked in some form of fashion most of my life and when I moved to LA I worked for a few brands and eventually assisted a few stylists until I decided it was something I wanted to pursue full time.

What is the name and age of your little one?

Yul, who is 19 months old.

What has been your biggest career achievement thus far?

Hmm hard to pick, but I think being the key stylist on an MTV series. It was an amazing experience and has made me want to dive into more tv and film.

What is the most rewarding aspect of being a mother?

The love you feel is unmeasurable.

And what is the most challenging?

So far, it's been keeping up with my toddler’s endless energy and being as present as I am while still maintaining a very busy work schedule!

What is your best advice for someone new to your industry?

Assist, research, and learn. Experience and the network you build is key.

What is your best advice for a new mother?

Set time aside for yourself weekly or as often as you can. Being a new mother is the most joyous time, but also the easiest to lose yourself in. I'm still working on this one 19 months in…

What's next for you? Do you have an exciting projects coming up?

I have lots of lookbooks, the Grammy's, a Nylon shoot and a few exciting projects with Disney in the works.
