Her career began as trainee at Bloomingdale's, then as a jewelry production/design assistant, and later as a home buyer for Five Below and Gilt Group. It was at a now-defunct startup called Chloe and Isabel where she fully embraced her creative side, eventually becoming the associate director of content. There, she helped build the brand's identity from the ground up, making contributions to photography, art direction, copywriting, and social media. She is currently making her best home here at The Spruce.
