Born and raised in upstate New York, it was Cindy’s elegant Belgian mother, and summer vacations spent exploring flea markets in Europe while visiting extended family, that inspired her deep love of style, design, healthy eating, and all things beautiful.

After attending George Washington University, where she majored in Political Science and International Affairs and met her future husband, Cindy made a brief foray into the finance and tech worlds. But her true passion for the creative world kept calling her name, and soon Cindy joined Ralph Lauren, a designer who had long been one of her fashion idols. 

Cindy is known among friends and clients for her classic, but fresh aesthetic, for discovering the latest up-and-coming designer, the newest hotspot, the most delicious recipe, the perfect florist, the spot on wall treatment.  She loves the challenge of creating something new with each and every client and the reward that making people feel their best brings. It was in this spirit that Cindy founded the Girl Guide in 2011.

Fast forward several years, a wedding, a baby, a move to Greenwich, CT, and Cindy’s dream for sharing the very best has only expanded as her life has grown even more full with love and beauty. Follow along as she shares her treasure trove of findings and her unique perspective on all things gorgeous.
