Ugh, my least favorite part of being a website designer is feeling like my own about page needs to set the bar and be the best example of what an about page is really all about. So here goes...
Truth be told, I come with a lot of history since I am now 40 years old. I can say I beat the odds of poverty and statics of being raised as a welfare child. And what got me here was my determination to living the lifestyle I wanted to live.
I believe success is about the feeling you get when you have your happy moments, your wins, and your lessons. Not about the numbers you make.
You will never hear me say six figures or some BS lie about making millions. I'm not here to be a millionaire; I am here to be a genuine natural person who wants to be a partner in your business that helps you feel happy about your success.
BUT TO ACTUALLY BE THE ONE TO DO IT? THAT TAKES COMMITMENT
So here we are. My design story began in 2016 when I was experiencing a lot of female health issues. After being told that I needed to be on bet rest for a while, I decided to do something different and start building websites, and I never looked back!
The design was my stress outlet, my happy place, and what made me feel "gorgeous" on the inside. And that's how Brand Me Gorgeous was formed.

And the best is still yet to come... stay tuned!
I am now a certified Showit design partner who teaches other designers and Showit users how to build in Showit
On February 21st, 2017, I opened Brand Me Gorgeous with a vision of what felt like a wing and a prayer. I want to help business owners gorgeously present their brands.
In 2013 my family had the opportunity to move to Florida. I was born and raised in Ohio, where the weather isn’t as friendly. However, I love the beautiful weather here.
I decided to go to graphic design school. I knew I wanted to be a graphic designer for photographers. So all assignments and projects I did were related to the photography industry.
After a few failed attempts at understanding photoshop, I was finally able to master it and learn how to edit photos and design logos.
My career journey started with photography in 2008 when I bought my first digital SLR camera.
in a nutshell
I have been married for 17 years to my wonderful husband, Joe. Together we have four children and two grandchildren. The two older kiddos live in Ohio, and the younger ones live at home but are now teens. ( Older photo here. I need some new family photos ).

Not going to lie or sugarcoat this, but I bit off way more than I can chew with these two hams. Cooper is the gray and white 115 lbs Alaskan Malamute who thinks he is the boss. Kylie, the brown and black dog, is 1/2 German Shepard and 1/2 Belgian Malinois, who is the protector.

Food is the way to my heart and my love language. I also love anything potatoes and bread. Basically, if it's on the kid's menu, I'll eat it. I don't do steak, seafood, or salads. Marrying an Italian has something to do with my pasta and bread cravings. At least, that's what I am going to blame it on!
