Growing up an athlete, no one in my immediate family would have guessed that I would make my way into the fashion industry. Creativity skipped a generation with my parents holding degrees in Engineering and Programming, yet both grandmothers had a talent for the arts. A knack for architecture and drawing developed into a love of fashion with some of my first designs being inspired by Kate Spade. In 2013 I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Fashion Design and Merchandising and a minor in Business Administration from WVU. Since graduation I have been very fortunate to intern at some of the best fashion companies in NYC. Most recently I have graduated with a Masters in Professional Studies in Marketing from LIM College and landed a job that finally created some stability in my life. I wouldn’t change my experience for the world!
