a bit more about me:

I’m a Minneapolis native who spent time living in Milwaukee and Chicago before making the move out to San Francisco. I consider myself a Midwest girl at heart, but I’m always up for new experiences and adventures.

By day, i’m a writer for some of the top home and interiors brands in the business — and I wouldn’t have it any other way! While i’m not working with my clients, you’ll find me over here writing about anything that’s top of mind. Consider it a fun space for me to chat about what I truly love!

Girl with a Grin was started in 2014 as a way to provide attainable everyday lifestyle ideas to others. For questions or feedback, i’m always just an email away: girlwithagrinblog@gmail.com, or you can find me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest. Thanks for reading along!
