Kimberly and I have known each other for several years. We met when she was a first-year MBA student at NYU Stern and I was eager to recruit ... her to the consulting firm I worked for. From our first interaction and throughout the recruiting process I found her to be extremely knowledgeable of the Retail sector, very smart and observant, a clear communicator and highly personable. She worked with me during the summer as an intern and she was a valuable member of the team. She was able to leverage her professional experience at Bloomingdales to thoughtfully inform the recommendations we were making for our client. While she ultimately decided consulting wasn’t the right path for her, I maintained contact with her because I knew Kimberly had a bright future ahead of her, and I wasn’t surprised when she decided to start her own business. She is driven to build a successful business; highly resourceful; passionate about her brand and products; and understands how the Retail sector works and is evolving. I have full confidence in her ability to build a sustainable, successful business.
