About Amanda
I was born into the shoe business. My grandfather and father built their lives around shoes, but at home they rarely spoke about work. I didn't gain a real understanding of how the shoe business worked and how fascinating it was until I was older. In college, I found myself interviewing for jobs in finance and after graduating I began working for an investment bank. After a couple of years, I found myself being drawn towards the fashion industry- I guess you could say it was in my blood. I have been working in my family business for over six years now! I have found a way to use both creativity and my business skills to effectively design and produce multiple collections each season.

My husband is constantly reminding me to always put everything in perspective whenever I am faced with a mini crisis or struggle at work or at home. I think it has forced me to constantly think about the bigger picture and to remember what really matters. Even when work is chaotic and life seems crazy- I just remind myself of my beautiful family and how lucky I am!

How many kids? Ages?

Interested In

I am always interested in figuring out what women want when it comes to shoes! I am constantly exploring the show business as a whole and trying to create the best product. I find the fashion industry to be inspiring from a creative and business perspective and I love connecting with other women in this industry. I am also very intrigued by industries that affect fashion but are totally out of my comfort zone. The tech sector and digital world are completely revolutionizing how we work and I am eager to learn as much as possible about them.

Mama Likes

Exercise and staying active, traveling to new places, dinner with friends, exploring new restaurants. However, what is most important to me is hanging with my baby girl whenever I can!

Mama Inspiration

All other mamas! Once I had my daughter and then headed back to work I realized that life was never going to be the same. Figuring out the best work/life balance is a constant effort! I am especially inspired by all of the successful working mamas out there who are entrepreneurs, running businesses and being creative while also being amazing mothers. I always look to them for advice on how to grow in the working world while also growing your family- the balancing act is inspirational!

Best advice you've ever been given

Don’t be scared to take risks! I constantly remind myself of the saying “In the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take.”
