I earned a bachelor’s of science in applied economics from the University of MN, then spent five years working in corporate environmental sustainability with Kohl’s Department Stores and Brooks Running Co.. At each company, I was promoted within two years.
I worked on-the-ground with global manufacturers to develop sustainability standards in collaboration with the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, and lead the in-house development of Brooks’ first restricted substance program for apparel in collaboration with bluesign technologies.
The hardest part and the most learning came after the corporate office, being scrappy and creative to find purpose and value. Freelancing since 2016.
