I'm in an improv group that performs all over Kansas City. I also do trail races and sing karoke from time to time.

I'm happiest when I'm...

Petting cute dogs and trying new restaurants with my fiance.

MADI Apparel product I literally can't live without:

The bamboo pajama pants are EVERYTHING.

Other than MADI obviously, my favorite sustainable or give-back brand is...

TOMS Shoes. I know that's old school; but, when I was in high school, I loved their mission and their shoes. So, I bought in. They were the first one-for-one program I'd ever heard of. I still admire and respect their work.

Reformation. I feel like Ref truly changed the game for sustainable fashion brands... gorgeous colors and silhouettes that prove sustainable doesn’t have to only be earth tones and relaxed shapes. Also, has to be said that MADI looks great with Ref 👌
