About me

Ever since I can remember I have had an affinity for maps, a sense of wanderlust, a curiosity to understand diverse cultures, a decisive process that takes on and resolve challenges for a positive impact, and a wanting to give back.

I have a unique background:

Seasoned retail executive with experience in a consumer centric, multi-channel, “best in class” Fortune 100 Company. Altruistic non-profit volunteer with extensive international travel and non-profit volunteerism experience where I have had positive sustainable impacts in the global community and developed cultural sensitivity.

G.E.A.R. Shop Collective is a niche consultancy whose mission is to be a conduit for cause and commerce. Using business as a means to build bridges of awareness while inspiring people to Grow through exposure and Engagement, Appreciate from connecting, and Reciprocate through compassion. Collaborating with non-profit and for profit organizations in a manner that transforms and improves the lives of the people and the communities that they serve through experiences, services, and goods.
