I’ve been recognized as a leader in the field of Fashion Law, as chairwoman of Fashion Law Week, a week-long Washington, D.C.-based symposium dedicated to educating the community about legal issues impacting the fashion industry, member of the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce which established an incubator for emerging designers and later, and as Legislative Aide for lobbyist, Liz Robbins, whose firm was hired to enact legislation that would provide anti-piracy protection for fashion designs. Currently, I am Of Counsel at The Fashion Law Group, P.C., where I advise artists, and corporations on a variety of legal issues affecting their businesses. I also present workshops on environmental sustainability within the fashion industry to the public.
Outside of the law, I am the co-owner of SwiMMMers Ear, a Brooklyn-based creative consulting/multi-media production company with my husband, multiple-discipline artist, Nelson Nance.
Feel free to contact me if you'd like to work together. Don't be shy!
I decided to go to boarding school when I was 12. I didn’t come from an affluent background where this was common. I just saw that some kids from the school at which my mom taught were able to go and I wanted to try it. After receiving a full-ride I found myself in a car with my then-divorced parents and my belongings on route from Dayton, Ohio to Newport, RI armed with nothing more than determination. In four years I went from culture shocked freshman to student body president my senior year.
