I started my career in footwear at Wolverine's R&D lab building 3D prototypes to 2D patterns. We moved to California for my husband's career, where I returned to graphic design at Electronic Arts. Eventually, we made it to Portland, where I was excited to return to a career in footwear. After being unsuccessful in switching to footwear, I returned to school to study footwear in The Netherlands at SLEM. I spent my studies in Europe, one trimester working in factories in China, while building shoes to support my graduate project. After graduating, I worked at Friton Designs, a freelance footwear shop run by retired and former Nike employees. When a Concept Creator position opened at Nike I was well prepared for multiple interviews and a week of building shoes to show my skill set. I am ecstatic to be a Footwear Maker for the brand, innovation and Nike athletes, especially after making a strong commitment to shifting my career direction. Everyday I find myself saying "making shoes is fun!" I couldn't be in a happier career place. Read Less
