Working hard is in my blood. Passion runs through my veins. And the boldness God gave me is a blessing and a curse. Here I will share my thoughts and advice on what I’ve learned and continue to learn being a young woman in the professional world. Everything from style tips, how to get a seat at the table (spoiler: make your own dang table), and notes on women who inspire me and have paved the way for women today. Let’s hustle ladies!
I wish I had a dime for every time someone said, “you look tired,” to me this week at work. AND IT WAS IT’S ONLY TUESDAY. I’d be retired at 25 like I’ve always jokingly said. All aboard the USS I’m exhausted!
Last week, I had a revelation about work. Rather, I was reminded why we work and why we as Christians are called to work. One of God’s greatest callings to work is being a Mother—and I believe I have the greatest one.
I’m usually excited for Friday, but it’s budget season and I wish the days were a little longer! Today, we had a networking event at my property and here’s what I wore. It’s of course, from Banana Republic. (:
Whoa. Thursday was INTENSE in my professional world. Meetings, conference calls, and a bomb threat to top it all off. Always ready. Always prepared. Always put together. Today’s dress was comfortable. stylish, and professional.
Hump Day! I had an intense physical therapy session this morning before work, so that meant a top knot was in order for my hairstyle today. As for the rest, I was feeling spunky and ready to put on a hardhat and view some construction zones with my team!
It’s Tuesday and I actually woke up early enough to do yoga and get my tea at Starbucks. I’m basic, I know. I had a long day of conference calls and meetings, so my attire needed to be comfy with my hair out of my face so I could be nose to the grindstone!
I’m a big believer of, when you look your best, your feel your best, and when you feel your best, you do your best. “Business professional,” and “business casual,” are way too casual these days in my opinion. I’m going to walk you through a whole week of professional dress! Let’s go, Monday!
I’m no expert, but my first tip is, don’t google, “interview tips,” because you’re going to drown in an overload of basic information like, “wear a blazer and make sure your perfume isn’t too strong.” Duh! So here’s five interview tips, from me, that you probably didn’t think of.
If there is one thing I love it is this: public relations, or more specifically media relations. I love writing press releases, scheduling media interviews, and most importantly being in front of the camera. Just kidding—but I do LOVE the chaos of back-to-back-to-back on-camera interviews. Bring it on, ask me the tough stuff, and let the cameras roll!
I love business professional everything.
Thank you to all who read and share my writings. I have received multiple requests to write more about professionalism, my job, and workplace tips. Thanks for the feedback!

I work best under pressure and high stakes, is that weird? I work in an office, most of the time, but I’m on the go, go, go! Here’s some tips, tricks, and essentials that help me make it through my fast-paced work day.
To Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and America, from Katie Farris, a female, conservative, millennial:
Congratulations. You are the youngest woman to serve in Congress in the HISTORY of the United States of America. You are making HISTORY and you should be so proud—I am proud of you. I know you are proud of yourself because you’re a strong woman, but seeing people demean you and your name since the day you announced your candidacy, I know must be hard.
Women are so special in God’s grand design. As a young twenty-something woman working in the professional world, I’ve failed, succeeded, failed again, again, and again. In my short time working in the professional world, I’ve learned a lot.
