The Fashionista Life!

Let’s Get Acquainted 💖

Behind every successful women there is a story.

I have over 25 years of experience as a small business owner and here is my story!

Welcome to

The real reason we started True Fashionistas is because I had fond memories of growing up and going to garage sales with my grandma. We would find clothes (we could not afford to go to a regular store to get new clothes) my grandma would then alter them to fit us. I also founded and run (besides True Fashionistas) Pink Farm House, and The Fashionista Life.

Pink Farmhouse is a collection of clothing, accessories and home decor items that are a reflection of my style. The Fashionista Life was founded out of the premise that I wanted to help other women business owners gain courage, clarity and confidence in their business and life. I wanted entrepreneurial women to not have to go through all the trials and tribulations that I had to go through in my business. I want them to be able to learn from me.

I want this for you because I wanted this for me.

In Florida my husband and I started True Fashionistas, a lifestyle consignment and resale store. It took everything I loved and put it into one (I just love fashion and home decor) and it is like Christmas everyday with new things coming in every hour…so much fun!

I grew up on a small dairy farm in Minnesota and I have 5 siblings. I never really knew how truly lucky and blessed I was to have lived that life until I became a mom. We never had a lot of money, so we made do with what we had. We truly did live off the land, learned how to sew, cook and we all worked very hard. It really prepped me for life as a wife, mom and entrepreneur.

I loved being part of the pageant and modeling community as I am a former Ms. Petite Minnesota. Being in pageants naturally brought me to the world of acting and modeling (to which I love to this day!) I enjoyed a long career in the modeling and acting areas doing things from ShopNBC to national and local commercials and print. It was a very fun time in my life.

I then started and owed a wedding and event planning business and bridal shop for 12 years before moving to Florida.
