about me

Growing up in a small town in Minnesota, I explored 40 acres of field and woods, played store with my two sisters, and sewed and crafted with my mom.  The fort & field name grew out of this lifelong love of the home and garden…”fort” for home and “field” for garden.
While the roots of fort & field started when I was just a child, the business I had always dreamed of was formed in 2004 when I started selling bakers twine, patterned treat bags, striped paper straws, and other novelty products just as the party and wedding planning trend started.  I was honored to have fort & field featured in Real Simple Magazine, Family Circle Magazine, Southern Weddings Magazine, Eco Beautiful Weddings Magazine, and Wedding Style Guide.  You can read more about the fort & field journey here.

fort & field has continued to offer essentials for any event.  And, in recent years expanded to include carefully curated pieces for home, garden, gifts, and fashion; the lifestyle company I envisioned at fort & field's inception so many years ago.

In addition to growing fort & field, I have worked as a Visual Manager for Anthropologie, a Buyer for Chico's, and an Account Manager and Merchandiser for Karen Kane, Inc.

My interests also include crafting (embroidery, paper working, and crochet), healthy eating and running, reading, listening to music, and traveling.  Let's connect on instagram, pinterest, and twitter and get inspired!
