Sportswear Apparel Designer, creative innovator. I have always been creative in all aspects of my life from painting, pottery, wood working, food and fashion. I grew up designing and making my own clothes. Once I saw my 1st fashion show, I knew this was the direction I was supposed to go in. I feel that one of my strengths in this industry has been mentoring and teaching young designers. I love seeing them learn new things and I love learning new things from them that make the process more streamlined. I also enjoy cooking, camping, building home furnishings, pattern making, staying active and spending time with family, friends and my little Basset Hound.
