6. How did you get into modeling?
With a Marketing degree from the Fashion Institute of technology I pursued jobs in the sales, mail order and manufacturing fields of the garment industry. After taking a hiatus to raise my two children my friend encouraged me to go for a missy fit casting at Dressbarn’s corporate offices. In 2011 the company was in the initial stages of creating a technical design dept and needed a missy fit model. I was their missy fit
model from March 2011 thru May 2017 . This opportunity enabled me to gain a lot of valuable experience and as a result I was ready to expand my horizon in this field. I joined Bicoastal fit Mgmt in February 2013 and I haven’t looked back since….they have been very instrumental in giving me the exposure I need to succeed! Thanks Bicoastal!!!
