Favorite Gap Inc. moment

It’s not a moment, but it’s our values! How we give back to the community and the world.

First job

Creative Director at Britches of Georgetown in Washington, D.C.

Epiphany moment

When the reality of fashion took hold of me. I wanted to be a diplomat. It was quite a revelation.

Always puts you in a good mood

My friends and the realization of how fortunate I have been.

Theme song

‘Never Give Up’ by Sia.

Our workplace, the challenges, and a team that is truly like a family.

What makes your job unique?

The vast challenges across the brands.

Why Gap Inc.?

I have been in the fashion industry for over 40 years and one cannot compare the values this company stands for, what they do in support of the employees, and how they give back to the community.
