My Story

I was born and raised in the beautiful Austin, Texas where swimming, hiking, and trips to Zilker Park are year round activities. Growing up in this health and fitness oriented city nurtured my appreciation and love for the outdoors. In doors, I've always been a creative mind. I spent the rare, cold days painting, writing, and dressing up my little sister. As I grew up, I developed a love for writing and an appreciation for the power of words. This love, combined with my inquisitive nature, is what led me to pursue a career in journalism. I am currently studying journalism and I plan to graduate in December of 2018. I have a one year old son named Matthew who is my reminder to always live in the present and follow my heart's desires.


I live a holistic lifestyle. I have never been one to believe there is a single right way for anything or anyone. I do, say, wear, and eat what feels right for me and my body. I wish the same freedom for everyone. ShorttnSweet is about listening to your own personal needs. I share what I have found that works for me along with my journey of exploring new possibilities.ShorttnSweet is about physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually feeling your best.


I speak on the things I feel passionate about-- exposing the inner workings of my mind. I believe in the power of words to unite and make a difference. Real Talk is an open discussion where vulnerability is encouraged and love is always present.



Health is about taking care of yourself mind, body, and soul. Taking care of yourself is one of the most simple and yet overlooked ways to show yourself love. I will share tips for everything from physical to mental health while honoring the interconnection between what we say, do, think, and feel.



True beauty comes from within, but taking care of the exterior is important as well. Beauty is about accentuating your confidence, health, and glow.


I am an avid proponent for thrift shopping due to it's environmental benefits, but I also love commercial and local shopping. These various means have made for a rather eclectic closet. Fashion is about having fun and expressing yourself. I believe in comfort and illustrating my creativity through my clothing choices.
