Elizabeth - Woman in red dress holding baby

Hello! I’m Elizabeth on paper but all my friends know me as Ebay (no not like the website). I’m a cool mom to a cute little babe named Willow Eloise and her fur brother and sister, Finn and Mako. We are a water loving, craft making, puppy pals chilling kinda family of four.

Before motherhood I found a nitch in the bridal industry as a boutique consultant and marketing manager. I found a passion for designing and creating both gowns and social media content. As my life was was preparing for motherhood I made a very hard choice to leave bridal (sad face) and take up social media full time (happy face) as my career so I had to opportunity to stay home with Lo and raise our tiny tribe.

After a collective of five years in boutique bridal marketing and 2 years with a creative agency I’ve now stepped into the fierce world of business ownership and treating myself to be my own boss! Mabry Collective is just another part of the family.

DMS has become my home away from home for my family. Gabi and Synthia give me a reason to sound cliche and say “they are my literal personal saints”. I’m able to create for my clients, Doublemint included, and know my carbon copy is learning, experiencing, and growing with two more strong women on her life.
