I have always been a creative person and like many women - a handbag lover. Several years ago my love of handbags, led me to conceive of an idea for an innovative interchangeable handbag. In 2010, I licensed that idea to a large accessory brand. Now I am excited to bring you my newest creation, The Flipbag.

Prior to entering the world of accessory design, I worked in the entertainment industry. I got my start as a project manager in New York City’s vibrant music scene. Over the years, I have worked with a high-profile group of artists including Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez, Mark Anthony, Ricky Martin, Tito Puente and Celia Cruz, among others. I then transitioned into Television as a News Reporter for Univision in Denver, Colorado. As a Journalist, I was fortunate to interview influential political figures including Laura Bush, Elaine Lan Chao, Senator Ken Salazar, Senator John Edwards, Elizabeth Edwards, Teresa Heinz Kerry, Federico Pena, Pete Coors, Dolores Huerta and Eva Longoria (Actress and Activist). Working with all those celebrities was rewarding, exciting and challenging but not nearly as exciting, challenging and rewarding as being an entrepreneur in New York City.

Today I am active with Ladies Who Launch, the first new media company to provide resources and connections for women entrepreneurs. Ladies Who Launch has been instrumental in my journey as an accessory entrepreneur. After becoming a STRATA member and Incubator Intensive participant, I joined forces with the organization to continue to grow LWL and support other women in their launch.  I am also a member of WEN (Women Entrepreneurs Network) at the Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center at Columbia University and a member of LIMA: The International Licensing Industry Merchandiser’s Association.

I am currently working on expanding my line and I’m looking forward to creating more fashionable accessories to make women’s lives easier. I’m confident you’ll enjoy my Flipbag.
