The Hard-Working Professional.
During college, I landed internships with Victoria’s Secret and Saks Fifth Avenue that opened my eyes to my undeniable passion for the retail fashion industry. Since then I have continued to expand and grow my skills for the last 5 years through positions at highly-respected companies, including Henri Bendel and Coach. While at Henri Bendel I discovered my strong interest in Product Development, due to its harmony between creativity and logic. As someone who strives to be a part of a creative process every day, this harmony between creativity and logic is a perfect fit.
I have an unwavering commitment to developing the highest quality goods at the best cost possible, creating a win-win for a brand and its customers. I have a proven ability to reduce SKU overdevelopment, negotiate costs with overseas vendors, and influence cross-functional decisions to benefit overall category margin season after season.

The Fun-Loving Adventurer
Though I pride myself in my strong work ethic and drive to achieve my professional goals, I am a fun-loving and adventure-seeking girl who fully believes in a strong work-life balance. During my free time I can be found exploring a new city or an undiscovered area of my own with my camera in-hand, trying a new work out class or activity, or venturing out on the water or the slopes.
After spending a semester abroad in Italy I completely caught the travel bug. I am always thinking about where I want to go next. Sometimes it's a foreign country and sometimes it's a town a few hours from home - currently I'm planning a trip to Europe! No matter where I go, I will always have my camera with me - another bug I picked up while abroad. For me, it's a creative outlet that allows me to see things in a slightly different way than I normally do.
One thing, however, that I typically do without my camera is try new workout classes or activities that bring a bit of adventure to my life. I was a competitive athlete from childhood through college and since graduating, I've been able to try so many new things - rock climbing, spin class, kayaking, you name it.
Despite all the new things I've tried, skiing and being on the water are two things that will always hold the top spots on my list. Growing up I spent every weekend in the Winter training with my race team and every weekend in the Summer on the boat. I wouldn't change a thing about that.
