My mission is to empower my fellow female creatives and help them achieve their business and/or blogging goals. I help the creatives, the planners, the entrepreneurs, the dreamers, the doers and the passion pursuers. My goal is to help you focus on gaining your confidence within your brand to truly find your unique power and live a life you love waking up to!
I have always loved design and style ever since I can remember. It wasn't until high school when struck with health issues where I found my passion for design and styling. As I was extremely limited I found a creative outlet and started sketching and making collages from magazines.
After some rough years, I persevered through it and received my degree in Fashion Merchandising and loved every second of it. During fashion school I started a life + style blog and started to get recognized by my peers and teachers for my skills and started helping them with their own blogs and social media. This is where I found my love for graphic design. Students were coming to me for help with Adobe programs and techniques. I started Cali Jae Designs in November of 2014 when I felt called to start my branding and design business. I have worked with some of the most amazing women across the world and have created lasting relationships which I value greatly. I love helping female entrepreneurs build and grow their brand, I love sharing inspiration and empowering others to stand in their power!
