A creative person from an early age, I learned how to sketch, sew, and hand knit. Wanting to nurture my artistic abilities, I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a Bachelors Degree in Fashion Design and an Associates Degree in Textile Design. During my 14 years of experience in the industry, I designed products across all women's categories from woven tops to bottoms and knitwear. I have curated and sold profitable designs to mass market retailers such as: New York & Company, Torrid, Ann Taylor Loft, Ashley Stewart, Avon, Macy’s, HSN, and many others. Now, I am at point in my career where I want to focus on a section of the fashion industry that I truly feel connected to. Specifically, the use of sustainable qualities and fair trade. Using my knowledge of creative design and product development, my goal is to build a brand of baby essentials that are not just good-looking in design, but high-quality and environmentally friendly.
