Who is she?
She wants to grow.
She has a desire to move.
She is changing seasons of life.
She knows there's more in her.
She understands she was created for a purpose bigger than herself!
I've been successful, now what?
How do I get unstuck?
What's my next step?
What happened to my dream?
What's my purpose, now?

“Helping others feel beautiful, seen and valued has always been part of my heart’s desire. Every person deserves to know their own beauty and strength. I have had amazing opportunities through the years to be able to fulfill these hopes while volunteering for various organizations that involve lifting others up through fashion, events and outreach. I was able to bring my experience through working with Created Woman’s fashion platform and my work through helping create events for the Dell Children’s Blood and Cancer Center to develop a fashion show dedicated to celebrating the beauty and stories of teen patients. In less than two years, we are now on our third CBCC Fashion Show and it only continues to grow. My dream is to expand locations for the show to other children’s hospitals around the country. I truly believe that God creates paths for each one of us that leads us to where we are meant to be and make a difference with the gifts he has given each one of us. I am so grateful to be a part of such a talented, generous community that has encouraged, supported and inspired me to be the woman that God created me to be.”

"I would always hear, 'You have a God-given purpose in life,' but that was hard for me to believe. I always just labeled myself as a 'single mom.' Nothing more. Then God used Created Woman to nudge me, remind me, of the gift I have, that I was doing nothing with. Now that I am walking in my purpose, others are being blessed!"

For as long as I could remember, I have been giving styling advice to friends and family - each time considering the message a recommended outfit would send out to the world.
As my fascination with clothing and helping others through clothing increased, I was challenged with questions like: Is this my gift? Can I use this gift to glorify God? Is this 'gift' actually a superficial type of joy?
Through prayer, I explored these questions deeper and boy did the Holy Spirit answer!
The first answer came through Created Woman where I had the opportunity to assist Heather Frierson with styling her fashion shows at Style Speaks. Next, I was blessed to lead my first fashion show for the women’s group at my local church, GMZ. Soon after, I was introduced to the world of personal styling through Jennifer Young, and truly, it was through personal styling that I could clearly see how to share my God given gift with others.
After doing some research, God led me to The Paid Stylist and I took their 8-week business course - Committed. Although the course was a ton of hard work and often forced me to step out of my comfort zone, it equipped me with the knowledge and tools I needed to launch my own personal styling business - Approachable Style by Travis Williams.
I'm thrilled to say that my personal styling business will be launching this fall and I can't wait to help women find clothing that expresses the look they want to translate to the world.
I have peace and joy knowing that the gift God gave me will be used to help women through those seasons and big moments in life.
