WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR BLOG NAME FROM? 
It took about a month to think of a blog name. Most of the names were already taken. I wanted a catchy name that stood out, but was also short and sweet. When I heard Missy Elliott’s ‘Get Ur Freak On’ on the radio. I said to myself, “That’s it! Get Your CHIC On!”

WHEN DID YOU START BLOGGING?
August 2014

WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
Since spending 10 years in Law Enforcement, I was ready for a change. I started my own jewelry business doing home parties, dressing women in jewels, and drinking wine while talking fashion. Many women at the parties wanted to know easy and affordable tips to help with their personal style. I started Get Your CHIC On as a way to share with women all my styling tips and tricks that I have learned along the way.

WHAT IS YOUR EDUCATION & BACKGROUND?
I have my Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice with an emphasis in Psychology. I began my career working as a Police Officer in South Carolina, and then as a Special Agent in Pennsylvania investigating felony white collar crimes.

WHO TAKES YOUR PHOTOS?
My husband takes my photos. He’s definitely an ‘Instagram Husband,’ 

HOW TALL ARE YOU?
I’m 5’3 and a half!

“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”
– Oprah Winfrey
