I am blessed to be a mother, sister, daughter and wife. There is nothing that brings me more joy than raising my five children.

While being a stay-at-home mom is my career, I have always had an affinity for fashion and style. It has been perfectly said "fashion is what you buy and style is what you do with it." I am inspired by the classic grace of Jacqueline Kennedy's wardrobe and the simple beauty of Audrey Hepburn in her little black dress. I love to window shop in Valentino and Prada. Unfortunately I have a very hard time finding off-the-rack dresses that work with my lifestyle. So for the past few years I have been altering, designing and dreaming of my own dresses.

With the encouragement of my darling family, courtneykate has become a reality. There have been miracles every step of the way fulfilling this vision. I could not have done it without all the people who helped along the journey. My goal is to design modest, timeless dresses for the women I love.
