As a senior level apparel designer, I’ve been fortunate enough to have developed valuable experience in many facets of the fashion industry. Beyond a seasoned design skill set, I have robust experience in business management, customer relations, marketing, trend forecasting, sales, merchandising, and an understanding of what drives consumers. My time as a university level fashion design instructor helped me build valuable experience as a coach and mentor. It honed my ability to guide young designers through the design process. My entrepreneurial experience taught me how to be solution oriented, manage my time and push through barriers. I am confident, yet flexible, self-driven, and unafraid of aggressive goals. I thrive in an environment where I can be counted on as a leader, but I’m a true soldier under good direction. I offer a broad base of experience, I consistently demonstrate my ability to deliver, and I’m committed to bringing innovative ideas to my projects. I enjoy collaboration and working toward a common goal as a highly-engaged member of my team.
