I am a two-time fashion tech entrepreneur, long-time strategy & product development consultant, and inadvertent full stack developer. I pioneered the concept of mass-customizing clothing by body type 18 years ago, and have been at the forefront of personalizing products and user experiences ever since.
I'm nothing if not persistent - when I kept running into the Catch-22 of being unable to hire a tech team to build Click2Fit’s software without funding, I started learning everything I needed to know in order to develop the algorithms and build it myself – from artificial intelligence, cognitive neuroscience and physics, to designing the architecture and developing the software. Fast forward a few years later and Click2Fit is about to start beta testing its expert recommendation software, and I became a full stack developer along the way.
As someone who’s self-taught (both as a programmer and as a businesswomen) and who was the only women in the room for far too long, I probably appreciate more than most just how intimidating and difficult the process can be and am driven to draw from my own experiences to help ease the way for others.
