Meet Claire  →

I am a wife and mother that is passionate about sharing content that helps us each live a beautiful and virtuous life. As an etiquette instructor, I love to seek out the beautiful things that surround us. You can often find me making a meal with my husband, building LEGOs with my son, and reading a good book - all in a beautiful dress! Thank you for being a part of this community, I am so happy you are here!

Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

Website Mock Up

Welcome to the new and improved, redesigned and rebranded, Finding Philothea! For the past seven years, my husband and I have done all the work behind this brand. However, this year we knew we needed help to make Finding Philothea what we desire it to be, a place where we show the beauty, mercy, and joy of a life lived in and for Christ. We knew we wanted our website to exhibit the standard of beauty we uphold so highly, yet didn’t have the personal skills, talent, and time to create on our own. 

After reaching out to our IG community for web designer recommendations, we were connected with Mary and her team at MK Design Studio. During our consultation call we immediately knew we wanted to work with her!

Mary and her team are professional, talented, and think about and care for every single detail. At the beginning of our rebrand process, Mary sent me questions about the vision we had for Finding Philothea as a website and brand. Mary is responsive, helpful, and she cares about every detail and unique preference that I shared with her. I filled out all of the responses to her website questions and made up my brand Pinterest board (one of my favorite parts of the process!).

Mary and her team then sent me the logo, branding colors, fonts, and designs. It’s all so beautiful! We worked together fine tuning each piece and for the first time since beginning Finding Philothea I have a clear, stunning brand that displays the beauty that I desire to share with you. Thank you, Mary!

If you are:
– wanting to build, rebrand, or redesign a website but don’t have the time or skills,
– want a beautiful, professional brand
– desire clear branding and a functional and user friendly experience on your website…
CONTACT MARY! And if you mention me in the inquiry form you’ll get 10% off if you decide to book after your consultation. 

Thank you, Mary! And thank YOU for being here on Finding Philothea. I hope it is a place that helps you find the one who loves God, your true self, and in turn, share His beauty with the world.
