Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I have always been inspired by colors, silhouettes and fabric. At an early age I would sketch outfits and make outfits for paper dolls. I was always dressing my girl friends growing up. I would design and create one of a kind pieces and sell them through out my college years. My major in college was clothing and textiles concentration design. In early spring of 2012 I was introduced to cabi- I instantly fell in love with the line of clothing (the quality, the designs, the colors all had me hooked!!) so I joined the company that July. The company was created by a group of women for women in 2002. These women continue to lead the company through their hearts- we are affecting lives through relationships.
