About Me : I was born in Seoul, Korea and adopted by my parents when I was 4 months old. I grew up in both NY and Delaware w/ my parents and my 2 other adopted siblings. We were a modern day Brangelina long before it was trendy :) I consider myself to be like a lot of women out there...a mom, a wife, a true lover of fashion and a fitness enthusiast. I love cooking, wandering the city streets on the weekends and snuggling on the couch w/ my babies. I have spent the past 17 years designing women's wear in the fashion industry and after having my boys, I decided to start my own company from home. I have recently launched my new personalized performance legging company called Style Reform, which I am so excited about! With my connections in the industry, I wanted to be able to offer people a space to get fairly priced premium performance leggings without the retailer's mark ups.
I love that Hey Mama is a community of women that share similar interests/values as me and I see a lot of lovers of food, fashion, travel and fitness. I'm totally down w/ that :)
I look forward to connecting w/ all of you gorgeous mamas!
What is your education?: I have a BS from the University of Delaware and I studied fashion design in both Paris and London.
Interested in: Business, Collaboration, Mentorship, Mentoring, Friendship
Other interests: I love to cook and bake all different types of healthy (an sometimes unhealthy) dishes for dinner parties or even just a chill Sunday at home w/ the kids.
I work out almost ever day and I love taking a Soul Cycle or pilates class to switch things up.
Why do you want to be a part of heymama?: I love this community of women that are passionate, hard working and kicking a**. It's totally inspirational for me as both a mom and entrepreneur to have a group of women w/ a similar situation. I am excited to be able to collaborate, lift one another up and see all of us succeed.
After having my boys, I have such a depth of respect for all the mamas out there working/creating, staying true to what they love as individuals and also trying to raise these babies to be happy functioning people of society :)
What are your brand goals for this year?: Goals for 2016/2017:
Brand awareness amongst the fitness/fashion world. I would love to see my product on the legs of the influencers/bloggers/mamas/fashionistas of social media and also to get more exposure via events and trunk shows. I need everyone to see, feel and wear these puppies to know why myself and my equinox crew love the leggings so much.
Since I am literally launching in the next few days...11/21, I would love to see my product sell to a level that I can begin expanding upon the offering...via sports bras, hoodies, etc...The Peruvian factory I work w/ does all of the premium brands knitwear in NYC and I would love to offer that to my customers but at a fraction of the price.
