I am a farmer's daughter who has been raised on hard work and perseverance. I am also the daughter of a creative, quick witted mother who taught me the importance of creativity and staying true to myself. Gilkey Co. is a reflection of who I am, where I came from and is filling the gap of what I see missing in the fashion industry. #FARMTOCLOSET.
All I ever really wanted was to be happy. Thats not too much to ask right? We all want that. Here's the thing, the average American spends 90,000 hours at work over their lifetime. Thats a gawd awful amount of hours if you're spending it being miserable. In jobs prior to Gilkey Co. I felt anxious, uninspired and felt like I was wasting my time. I didn't want that for myself or my dear, sweet husband that I would have probably have taken my misery out on :)
......I know, enough bummer talk.......
I knew that I wanted to own my own company. I also knew that I wanted to monetize my creativity and work my buns off doing something that I loved. I knew that if i was lucky enough to start a company, I wanted it to be a company that I could grow with. So, I created Gilkey Co. and it's hands down been the coolest ride I've taken thus far. The company is still growing, evolving and attempting to be extraordinary every single day. That's the beauty in doing what you love, each day is another day that you get to wake up and obligingly kick that day's butt, because if you don't, no one else will.
Outside of Gilkey Co. you might find me snuggling our beloved pups, Nala-The-Great (best looking dog in the WORLD), along side our tripod Border Collie, Juno (the heartbreaker).
There's no greater day than spending it with my husband and pups, in the comfort of our dreamy home. On weekends, you can find me at the beach with my pups & family, rotating pj's to sweats and coffee to wine. God is good.
