I decided to add this page because I am constantly inspired by other women who are paving the way in their given industries. It’s always so fun to hear about a new young CEO, model, or entrepreneur who is thriving in their field.
After graduating from Baylor University, moving to New York City, taking the role of CEO at Flight Social Media, and working for Luxe Social Media, I have been lucky enough to meet some of the ladies below. Throughout my career I have tried to place positive role models and mentors in my life that push me onward and lift me upward.
“For young women who are just beginning their careers, I have no better advice than to look at others ahead of you, who share your passions and have successfully paired work with what they love.”
Below are some inspiring women who have found their passion and creatively share it in unique and beautiful ways:
Luxe Social Media, founded by Tiffany Dowd, (known by over 63K twitter followers as @LuxeTiffany) provides social media consulting and management for some of the world’s most exclusive luxury hotels, destinations and lifestyle brands. Tiffany is the perfect example of a woman who is living out her dream. Through hard work, an amazing attention to detail, and her savvy social media skills, Tiffany has become an icon in the luxury travel world. I’m constantly inspired to dream bigger after every conversation with Tiffany.
Karlie Kloss and I would be friends. I can just tell. 🙂 I ran into her on the streets of New York City once when I lived there and while in sneakers she was still a good two inches taller than me…and I am 5’11. I was also lucky enough to see her walk for Diane Von Furstenburg during New York Fashion week in 2014. I love what she is doing with her YouTube Channel through Klossy and her Instagram posts always make me smile. Her work in coding through Kode with Karlie is bringing education and light to the lack of women in Tech AND I religiously bake her healthy Perfect 10 Kookies..told you. If you aren’t familiar with Miss Kloss, you’ll be happy to see such a light in fashion industry.

A career icon of mine will always be Ivanka Trump. The way she gracefully leads as Executive Vice President of Development & Acquisitions at The Trump Organization is honorable. I love following along as she raises three beautiful children, sometimes in jeans & a t-shirt and after hours in ball gowns. Follow her here and be inspired!
