Living a Haute New Life

As a driven Southern Belle! I am constantly trying to stay at the top of my game whether it’s at work or working on my fitness. I’m a strong-willed Southern beauty born in the Bluegrass State of Kentucky and graduated from Virginia Tech in just 3 years in 2003 with a B.S. in Marketing Management. I made Charleston, SC my home 9 years ago where I found and married my soulmate and best friend, Brent Trenga.  I have had several occupations while living in Charleston and have had the opportunity to meet lots of people in the community. I share my experiences and knowledge that I’ve has gained as a model, actress and fitness fanatic with you through HAUTE NEW LIFE. I hope to provide everyone with beneficial information on diet/nutrition, fashion and beauty tips in hopes that everyone can become a more amazing “you” and start living a Haute New Life.
