graduated from Baldwin-Wallace University with an undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education and then earned a graduate degree in Educational Policy and Leadership from The Ohio State University. After working for 12 years as an elementary intervention specialist, I craved greater flexibility for my growing family. Keep Collective has offered me a fulfilling yet flexible career that allows me to be present for all of the important family moments while also building a thriving business.
I was offered a position as one of the first 20 independent Designers to launch Keep Collective in the fall of 2014. Since then, I’ve developed a rapidly growing team of over 2,000 women and men across the United States and Canada. Keep Collective specializes in custom jewelry and accessories that are hand-designed to represent the things in life that matter most. All pieces are crafted with genuine materials, lead and nickel tested, anti-tarnish and ionic plated for durable daily wear. Items are beautifully packaged, gift-ready and ship from a Groveport, Ohio based fulfillment center. Keep Collective has captured the attention of the national media and has quickly become a celebrity favorite. Keep has been featured on The Today Show, Undercover Boss, People Style Watch, Hollywood Reporter, The Hallmark Channel, The Steve Harvey Show, MSNBC, US Weekly, In Touch Weekly, Women’s Day, The Bachelor and many more national media outlets.
Specializing in one-on-one and group design sessions to create custom looks, fundraising and corporate gifting.
