Growing up, I dreamed of owning a boutique on a quaint street somewhere in a charming city. Influenced by my mom, an artist, I have thought about and looked for beauty throughout my life. After teaching high school Spanish after graduating from BYU, I began to explore possible creative outlets. I had a design in mind for a handbag that I had wanted for myself, but hadn't found anything like it in stores. After countless revisions, the Elodie convertible backpack was created. I then launched my accessories business after years of planning, preparation, and development. Designing and creating brings me so much happiness and I feel so fortunate to be doing what I do.
I design handbags that blend casual elegance with everyday utility. The handbags are made with the highest quality of leather that will wear beautifully over time. My hope is that these handbags become a closet staple and longtime companion for my customers.
I live in Houston, TX with my husband and two sons.
