Hi there!  Welcome to my blog, Type of Beautiful.  I’ve been documenting my journey to bring my natural curls back to life on my Instagram Page, and from there I’ve started to branch out to share my favorite products and encouragement to my growing IG family.  It’s been quite the journey so far!


I’m an accidental turned purposeful Influencer by night, by day I work in healthcare as a diagnostic medical sonographer (ultrasound tech). I absolutely love my job and enjoy teaching at conferences and helping patients. In my free time I love to binge episodes of The Good Place with my Fiancé Gary, spend time with my nieces, and get away to the family cottage in Northern Michigan. Gary and I are parents to three fur babies (a Mini Goldendoodle, a Portuguese Water Dog/Lab mix, and a tabby cat) so there is always lots going on at home! After living in Illinois for a few years I am beyond happy to be back home in Michigan, I love being near my family and able to experience all the amazing things living in The Mitten brings.

I recently started a YouTube page where I share tips and tricks about my curls, along with fun hauls and some behind the scenes looks at my daily life.
