Born into a family of craftsmen with an innate desire to always create something out of anything available or left for scrap, she started with crochet and sketching at the age of 7 and found her way into the world of millinery about 16 years ago passed down to her by her older sister.
With over 10 years experience in Client Relationship Management, Business Development and Administration, she has found her way back to her first love for the arts now translated into Millinery and Product design
In 2017, She enrolled in an intensive one on one course with the renowned, award winning Katherine Elizabeth Millinery in the United Kingdom. She constantly develops her skills by enrolling in online training, stays updated on trends in the industry and gives back to the community as part of her corporate social responsibility by training the youths and less privileged in the society at no cost with the hope that they’d develop a life skill to support themselves and someday pay it forward.

A starting point is working side by side with Milliners locally and recently became a member of the British Millinery Association.
