After 14 years as a successful freelance producer and stylist in the commercial photography industry and on film and television projects, in 2006 Cactus transitioned her talents to The Campbell Agency to develop their Artists Division working with Wardrobe, Product and Soft Stylists, Hair & Make-up Artists and Producers. In addition, she was a full time print booker for Campbell’s New Faces, Juniors, Missy, Sophisticates, Plus Size and Men’s boards.
In 2008 she joined the one and only FORD Models in Los Angeles representing the Kids and Teens Division. Cactus was quickly elevated to Director representing over 300 working models where she revived the division and delivered unsurpassed revenue by successfully scouting trend right talent, developing impactful portfolios and productively partnering with casting directors, talent management, producers and ad agencies worldwide to deliver superior models to FORD’s diverse and vast client list. In 2013 Cactus and her team transitioned their kids and teens talent to world-renowned agency, LA Models, where she was named Executive Director of their Youth Division.
As a former stand-up comic, Cactus engages with a quick wit and positive attitude. She’s a fun, high functioning multi-tasker that prioritizes under pressure fueled by her vast industry experience delivering broad perspective. She approaches problem solving in a creative, flexible and effective manner. Her colleagues, models and clients are always smiling and looking forward to the next opportunity to partner with Cactus!
