Merchandising & Apparel
My career in apparel began with a Bachelor of Design from Ryerson’s School of Fashion. My education was peppered with an international exchange program with Amsterdam’s Fashion Institute (AMFI).
After graduating, I began working for YM Inc. in Toronto and worked my way up to a buying role for Bluenotes, a denim retailer. During my evenings and weekends, I ran an e-commerce business called Savannah Boutique, which sold locally produced jewellery and accessories. Once recruited by Free People, I moved to Philadelphia to manage the wholesale intimate apparel business.
