Founder, To Covet And Bestow
Tell us a little about yourself!
I was born and raised in Northern New Jersey but always had the itch to become independent and see more than New Jersey/New York City. At 18, midway through my freshman year of college in NJ, I applied and enrolled to college in Florida and told my my mom I was leaving. It was a crash course in adult life being so far from home, having my own apartment, working, going to school full time and completing two internships. After college graduation (I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism) I moved back to start working in New York. I was lucky enough to get a job at Avon where I stayed for five years and had roles in several sides of the business. When they were downsizing, I was let go and I was devastated, but I felt like everything happens for a reason. I wanted to see the West Coast and work out there. Ironically, Avon asked me back twice but I applied to a job at Sephora, got accepted, packed my bags and left. I spent a year out there, but I didn’t feel fulfilled and wanted quality of life over quantity. I moved back last November, started writing a book, launched a blog, began a spiritual journey to become who I truly was and have never been happier.
