She discovered her love for art while taking an art history class at Central Piedmont Community College. She transferred to the College of Charleston in South Carolina where she took classes in painting, drawing, and art history. After graduating with a Bachelor of Art degree in Art History, she worked as an art consultant for Charlotte Pipe and Foundry Company for several years.
