How did you get into fashion?

I've been into fashion since I was a little girl. I remember in elementary, my teachers used to pull me out of class just to see what I had on for the day. And I won "best dressed" in elementary, middle school, high school.

Do you have a fashion philosophy?

My motto is, It's not who you wear, it's what you wear. I'm a big bargain shopper; however, I believe in investment pieces. A Louis Vuitton bag, a winter jacket - you'll have those forever.

Where do you shop most?

Anywhere. If it's something I like, I'll get it. I'm a big online shopper. And Forever 21 has real good, inexpensive accessories.

What are you into right now?

Jeans. Any cut, any type. I wear them with boots, flats, heels. You can dress up a jeans outfit - it can be business-casual, it can be just casual, it can even be business. It's all in the way you accessorize it.

What have you done as a stylist so far?

I've done music videos, photo shoots for models, personal shopping, personal styling. I really want to work with celebrities. That's my ultimate goal.

So do you want to move out of Columbus?

No. I want Columbus to be my stomping ground, where I live, but I'm willing to travel.
