I am a serial entrepreneur or a serial masochist—depending on how you want to look at it. My latest endeavor is, a curated online marketplace for luxury historic real estate, travel destinations, and design. I typically bite off more than I can chew and that is the way I like it. My life ethos is to go big or go home. I appreciate beauty in all forms wherever I can find it. I thrive off of being underestimated and working outside my comfort zone. I am a down to earth woman who does not have an illustrious pedigree, but I’ve worked my tail off to achieve everything that I have and that’s taught me to appreciate every luxury I’m privileged to experience. The American Dream is still alive and well if you choose to work hard enough for it. I am a contributor to Forbes, Inman, HuffPost, and Southern Living's The Daily South.
