I am a multi-talented professional with an ease for accessory and shoe design, development and project management. My experience in these areas has given me insight into designing and developing trend-savvy lines with consideration for quality, cost, and aesthetic. I have experience traveling to China to oversee sample production, material development and sourcing. Having worked for Junior's, Contemporary and Women's casual lines I regularly shop the market to understand trend directions and gaps in my customers' line offerings. I have a great eye for design and color which I incorporate into my forecasting analysis. Having worked in all aspects of shoe manufacturing: from design and fit, to development, to production, I have unique insight into what makes a product successfully progress through this cycle and become a hot seller. Being naturally organized and a confident decision-maker, I enjoy being challenged at work and thrive working at a company that has a higher purpose.
