My passion for fashion and style has been a constant in my life, from childhood to now. While accompanying my mother to beautiful stores in my home town and around the world, I learned how the clothes we wear have an impact on our sense of self. To create a beautiful wardrobe of my own, I paid close attention to fashion trends and how people wore them. In high school, I got my first taste of the retail world while working at Barneys New York which opened my eyes to cutting edge design and how to incorporate it in everyday fashion. In college, I spent a semester abroad in Florence, Italy studying fashion design with a Swedish designer. Creating my own collection from start to finish helped me appreciate the artistic process that goes into bringing fashion to life. After graduating from the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado Boulder, I started my career in marketing, and was fortunate to live in cities like San Francisco, New York, and Miami – places brimming with styling inspiration. Today – as a mom of two energetic children – I start a new chapter with Pollard Style so I can continue to follow my love for fashion, styling, and helping people feel great.
