What advice would you offer for women just starting out?
In any field, I’d tell women to just say “yes” to things that seem scary or intimidating. Be the business person you aspire to be now, take chances and forge ahead. You’ll make mistakes but I promise you’ll overcome them and learn from them. The word “yes” has taken me places I never could have imagined.
Why do you do what you do? What motivates and inspires you?
I’ve always worked like a tornado, and Covet allows me to be creative and make changes at a frenetic pace. In order to keep my customers engaged and the store feeling fresh, it’s important for me to rework it on a regular basis. I’m inspired by new products and I enjoy discovering new ways to display them. I love taking something chaotic and whittling it down into a beautiful space.
