Wow! Well, I am still fairly new to Denver. I came from Portland, OR where I was a Senior Apparel Designer at adidas. I quit the corporate world to follow my passions. I am in the process of forming a nonprofit called Undestructable. Our mission is to facilitate the financial independence of survivors of domestic violence through employment, job skills training, and making through a process of reclaiming, reimagining and rebuilding. Sustainability is at the heart of everything Undestructable does, that goes for product AND people. I love to talk about this work, so if you are reading this and want to learn/understand more, please do not hesitate to reach out!!
The apparel industry: design, development, patternmaking, draping, sewing, etc. Leadership, teaching, human behavior
Fundraising, grant writing
Keep going and reaching out until you get a hard “no”. And then, keep going anyway.
At this moment in time? Me. I know that might sound weird, but I have taken a lot of risks over the last year to get to this point. It has not been easy and I admire my own perseverance to make the world a better place.
