I’m a mom and full-time student studying clinical laboratory science. I sew, bake, knit and embroider too. Busy hands keep me centered and present.

What influence does music have in your life as a creative?:

Music is something that reminds me of who I am, what makes me smile, sing, and move. Music that speaks to me is the kind I can sing loudly to (alone, in front of only my most trusted people), that wraps me up completely, that was inhabits me. Honestly, while sewing I listen to more long podcasts than music because I get distracted by both or either. Sewing and music have the same kind of experiential hold on me.

Tell us about your playlist:

These songs are a sampling of what albums hit the spot on any given day. I like what I like and for a long time- I’m extremely loyal when it comes to music. So if you like one of the songs, I encourage you to try the album (I think there’s something only a couple of singles on there). These are kind of a cross-section of different stages in my life, but all resonate with me still.
