ALL ACCESS: MY STORY
I was a little girl from Wisconsin with big dreams. When I was 17, I moved to New York City by myself in a Uhaul that had a lawn chair for a passenger seat. Of course, I thought nothing of it because I was going to make it....and that is where it all began! I became a Wilhelmina Model, and for the next 14 years I would experience more than most little girls think possible. With an incredible amount of hard work, rejection, and perseverance, I have modeled all over the world. The modeling world lead me into Television when I was 23, and gave me an opportunity to host dozens of television shows for networks like ABC, Spike, MTV, Vh1, and many more.
Being in both industries taught me something else I didn't know I would fall in love with: makeup-artistry and the quest to make women feel amazing about themselves! The entertainment industry can be insanely fickle, so when I was looking for the next gig, I was doing makeup for models, socialites, brides and women of all types. I loved watching their faces light up when I was done. Their amazement when they looked into the mirror always brought me an incredible amount of joy!
Four years ago while living in LA doing a TV show, I met a Southern Gentlemen that lived in Nashville, TN, and as the story goes, he would later become my husband and my reason for moving to Nashville. The first year I was in Nashville I became the Senior Education Director for Sephora. In that year I learned so much about women, their needs, and what beauty means to them. While working as the Education director at Sephora, I accomplished another goal of mine, and that was to receive my license as a 300 RYT yoga instructor. Yoga has always been a huge passion of mine, and I love teaching women that yoga is a journey and it can change your life.
This year after finding out I was pregnant (insert scream of joy) I knew that my world was going to change, both personally and professionally. Besides being the best mommy I can be, I also wanted to create something that would empower women, and the idea for Callie's All Access Beauty was born: combining the wealth of knowledge I've learned from the make-up industry, fashion industry, and yoga, and sharing it with others!
So how does Rodan + Fields fit into this, you ask? Well for some time, I knew with every client I had that their makeup wouldn't fix their skin problems, only conceal them. I wanted to get to the root of the problem, and help all women of all ethnicities feel the confidence that comes from healthy beautiful skin, using make-up to then complement those results. There was no better fit for me than Rodan + Fields! This incredible company and the power of their products is exactly what I was looking for in order to bring my vision full circle. I am excited to teach, share with, and educate women from the inside out through ALL ACCESS BEAUTY.
So, I invite you to come on this journey with me. Ask me any questions you would like, and know that I feel incredibly blessed to be able to help in any way I can!
With Love and Light,
