I fell in love with bringing fashion to Sonoma County

The devastating Tubbs Fire in 2017 forced me, like so many in my community, to reinvent myself. I began my career as a hairdresser in 1996. In 2008, I opened The Loft Salon at Fountaingrove in Santa Rosa. Tragically my salon was lost in the 2017 wildfires. Through the shock and grief of losing my business, I recognized this was my window to a new dream.

I shifted my aspirations and took my work to the next level. Inspired by my daughter’s work in the fashion industry in Los Angeles, and a passion for supporting sustainable and socially conscious vendors, my vision emerged: bring LA fashion to Wine Country integrated with the traditions and values of Sonoma County. 

I acquired the Hush Boutique in Windsor, rebranded and relaunched the storefront creating HushUp Men’s and Women’s Boutique. Located in the Windsor Town Green, I specialize in unique fashionable basics and on-trend looks. Along with fun pieces to add to your wardrobe, I am committed to providing affordable merchandise, building relationships with both local artisans and national companies who have a commitment to critical causes such as ending human trafficking and domestic violence, supporting breast cancer research and more.
