What do you do for Gap Inc.?

I led the launch of Athleta Girl last year, and now I get to work with an amazing team across all functions to bring the Athleta Girl brand to life!

What inspires you?

Being outdoors, being active and the potential to inspire our customers to find their passion.

Style personality

Sporty.

Go-to outfit

Athleta tights (of course), tee, sneakers and a jacket.

All-time favorite piece of clothing

Probably my running shoes. I change them out pretty frequently, so there isn’t one particular style I favor, but it’s the one piece of clothing I would never leave the house without! They come with me on every vacation and are always part of my favorite part of the day.

Last purchase

My 30 ClassPass to Orange Theory.

What you’ve learned from customers

Our Athleta Girl customer is amazing and inspiring. She’s inspired by her peers, but also thinks her mom is pretty cool, too. She has a strong point of view on fashion and what she likes, but above all else, she wants her clothes to be comfortable!

Favorite Gap Inc. moment

Standing in our Athleta store in Corte Madera for our big launch event of Athleta Girl last April. To see the brand come to life in the real world and see the customers so excited was a once in a lifetime moment! 

First job

Camp Counselor.

Always puts you in a good mood

My family (3 girls), a trail run, music, or a rare date night with my husband.

Theme song

I am guilty of playing one song on repeat to exhaustion, but that one song changes often, so my theme song could be different on any given day! But I would say the one theme song with most longevity in my rotation is “Best of What’s Around” by Dave Matthews Band. 

Something people don’t know about you

I was on a game show (Fun House – for anyone in my generation) when I was in 8th grade and won $850 and a home recording studio.

What makes you most excited to come to work in the morning? 

Being a part of a brand whose mission is so aligned with my personal beliefs and values. Beyond that, it’s obviously the incredible people I get to work with each day!

What makes your job unique?  

I am incredibly lucky to have a job where my passion goes beyond the product and the business. Raising three girls at home I am extremely dedicated to ensuring that we not only have the best product for young girls, but a message that goes beyond clothes and gives girls confidence to know that they can do anything! I love that I get to bring my passion to into work fully each day.

Why Gap Inc.?   

The people I have met and get to work with daily. The values of equality and inclusiveness that Gap Inc. stands for, and the opportunity to be a part of a company that is committed to doing what is right for our environment, our customers, and our employees across the globe.
