As an entrepreneur, business pioneer, and motivator-in-chief, I work with a diverse, powerhouse team to create, produce, market, and deliver unique home fashions that customers love.
As Founder and CEO of Triangle Home Fashions (THF) and its signature brand, Lush Décor, my visionary perspective earned me various opportunities that a less keen eye would have missed. Armed with a degree in textile and surface design from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and a few years of experience in the home textile category, I initially envisioned a better way of doing business – one where the company delivered more than what was expected.
Innovative Thinker and Change Maker
In 2008, driven by my love of design and passion to create uniquely detailed home decor at key price points, I was determined to be a game-changer in what was then a still-fledgling e-commerce market. I invented a company culture of leadership and innovation that not only originated impeccably detailed, accessible home decor for every room, every lifestyle and every life stage, but one that also managed global production, comprehensive warehousing, and a direct distribution network for fast delivery.
My goal has always been not only to do good work, but to do good work that matters. This led to a first-ever licensing partnership with Make-A-Wish America where 5% of all net sales from the Make-A-Wish Collection by Lush Décor are donated to the organization to help fulfill the wishes of children with critical illnesses.
Inclusive, Results-Driven Leader
I attribute my success and the success of the company to the strength and shared vision of my team – or family, as we call ourselves. The THF family is more than 60% female, hails from 7 different countries, and collectively speaks 11 languages.
Strong ideas, top-performing teams, and a clear path to flawless execution are what motivates us and what drives success through today’s complex business terrain.
In 2019, I was awarded the EY New Jersey Entrepreneur of the Year Award and a national nomination in the consumer category. And, in 2021, I was named an Enterprising Woman by Enterprising Women media.
