Q:Tell us about your love for fashion.
Fashion is such an incredible way to express yourself. I love how you can create a statement through your wardrobe and feel good about yourself.
As a small town girl from Huron, South Dakota, working in fashion has taught me to never stop dreaming and you can do anything you set your mind to. The possibilities are endless! I have worked in various aspects of the fashion business, from merchandising to sourcing. At Macy’s, I started as a men’s merchant and climbed the ranks to work on various brands including Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, INC International Concepts and Vince Camuto. Now, I’m the Head of Macy’s Fashion Office.
Q:What excites you most about your role as the Head of Macy’s Fashion Office?
First, I love that we dress America and that we make lives shine brighter. I believe that we don’t just sell a product; we sell emotions. It’s about the feeling and confidence people get in our clothes. Second, I love my team and what we do. It is so thrilling to travel the world to bring back exciting ideas and concepts that we can deliver to our customers.
Q:Tell us about your personal taste, current fascinations and latest obsessions.
As a mother of two, I try to find the balance between quick, easy looks, fabulousness and minimalism. For example, you’ll most likely catch me rockin’ a backpack, because it’s the perfect mix of practicality and style. I always try to be my authentic self and stick to a simple palette of millennial pink, black, navy and khaki.
I am obsessed with health and wellness and I’m really into taking care of myself. That includes cooking all of my own food and a lot of Soul Cycle.
I am also fascinated and inspired by different cultures, the people I meet, and how they interact with one another.
