I worked with a team to develop a high visibility safety garment for waste water plant operators. We won 3rd Place in the Industrial Fabrics Association International Safety Products Student Design Challenge: a contest of which students were asked to design original products that protect people or property from hazards such as extreme temperatures, chemical or biological exposure and falling.

I have participated in 4 different Silhouettes Fashion shows at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. I have submitted multiple looks each spring and assisted as well as team led specific sub groups of the organization such as Music, Models and Makeup.
I worked with Pink Bow City, a company out of Minneapolis, MN at the time of which I created, produced and sold my own designs. Three other designers and myself hosted a fashion show where I had a 6 piece collection.
