It all began in a job I loved but was being drained from.
I had a vision, a dream and this space is it.
CG all started back in 2014 as a creative outlet. I had graduated from UNCG with a BA in Communication Studies and went to work for a marketing firm but realized it wasn’t a good fit. So I took a year off, moved to NYC, and tried to figure out what my next steps were. I then decided I would go back to school to get my Bachelors in Nursing. It was around the time that I was in nursing school that CG started to come to life. I had no idea what this space would turn into, but I just started my blog and IG as a hobby. It wasn’t until a few years later, when I was working full-time as a ICU RN, that I realized they could be so much more than that! I ended up stepping away from nursing at the end of 2019 and couldn’t ask for a better job or community of girls! (Ps. Never feel like it’s too late to start…anything is possible)

Can this be a title?! Haven’t worked my way up to a sommelier but I do love a good glass of wine. Preferably a good cab in the winter, and sauv blanc & rosé in the summer.
As y’all get to know me, you’ll get to know my better half, Stephen! Half the time I feel like people come to my IG for me, but stay for Stephen LOL. We got married summer 2017.
Proud dog mom of 2 goldendoodles Fritz & Oz! And they actually are brothers. I know, shocker since they look nothing alike lol.
