"I built my dream job over the past few years and every move I made was a stepping stone to where I am now. I have always found networking important, no matter what the setting is. A few years ago, Kent Stetson was a guest speaker for my seminar class at my university. I networked with all the speakers but was very intrigued by his story and edgy designs. My first purchase was Splash, his signature design which is a physical representation of his transitional story from digital art into handbag design. From then on, I saw Kent at many other fashion events I was involved in, including the the Sunflower Soirée Annual Fashion Show. Here I was a swimwear designer and fashion show event planner.
As an artist, I love expressing myself through fashion that resembles wearable art. I bought more bags and became a #KentCollector. I started wearing and promoting his work on my social media platforms and blog. He saw all my promotional work and asked me to work for him as his PR girl. I started working part-time at special events such as StyleWeek and trade shows, managing his social media and designing the brand website. Over the years, I have grown his online presence and networked with many industry professionals. Recently I just got offered a full-time position here as his PR & Account Manager. I feel it is important to have pride and passion in your work. You live one life; love what you do."
