Armed with an engineering degree and an MBA, the Lake Forest CEO of Yogashero moves with grace from yoga classroom to boardroom.
I feel most fabulous when I wear… high heels. I’m more of a shoe fanatic than anything. Buying a special pair of shoes is like investing in artwork.
My first fashion moment was… when I was in high school, I was asked to do a fashion show for Detroit-born designer Nikki Doss, and she ended up designing my prom dress, a hot-pink, raw-silk A-line number with a cinched waist. It was fabulous.
My fashion splurge… is a Chanel bag or dress. They’re timeless pieces and worth every penny.
Trend I can live without... Impractical backless dresses that require a special bra.
Trend I can’t live without... Fringe and tassels because they’re fun, and a little sassy, and show some personality.
