What does Sacred Heart mean to you?
Sacred Heart means sisterhood. I treasure the strong bonds and lifelong friendships that I made during my 14 years there. My class, the Class of 1997, had a unique dynamic. We were a very tight yet very diverse group of artists, athletes, and academics, and there was no one girl or group that was singled out—we were all in it together.

How did your Sacred Heart education help get you where you are professionally?
Rather than focusing on weaknesses or deficiencies, our teachers had a way of tapping into our strengths and cultivating our passions. My love for creative writing, my appreciation for art history, and my fascination with the decorative arts began in my English and art classes and were crucial in laying the foundation for my editorial and styling work.

Outside of academics, what about the Sacred Heart experience uniquely influenced who you are today?
I believe that confidence comes from within and that Sacred Heart brings it out. As early as Preschool, I was encouraged to find my voice, and as I grew into high school, I was encouraged to speak it. That's empowering.
