Why did you want to be an R.Riveter Brand Ambassador?
I wanted to be a Brand Bmbassador for R. Riveter because this company’s values are much like those of my personal and professional lifestyle. I work every day to enhance the quality of life of service members and their families, empowering them to overcome challenges in their lives due to military life and combat. R.Riveter does the same, giving spouses meaningful and gainful employment which in turn, enhances their family's quality of life. I am proud to promote not only an American owned and operated business, but also one that empowers all who are associated with its brand.
What is your favorite R.Riveter handbag?
My favorite R.Riveter handbag is the Hobby. I had always been a large handbag kind of girl because I am a busy mama and need lots of random things at a moments notice. Once I tried the Hobby, I fell in love with a smaller handbag! I pair my Hobby with the Grant since I have small children. The Grant is a great option for busy moms, and I can easily slide my laptop and items I need for meetings while grabbing my Hobby on the way out the door.
