About Me

Hey, I'm Sara.

I'm founder of IMBY. We make closets - and mornings - simpler by highly curating a mix-and-match collection of womenswear, all ethically and sustainably-made.

I'm a design thinking nerd. I love using the elements of human centered design in building projects that matter, and have worked both one-on-one and in workshops of 10 to 150 people to integrate design thinking principles into building new things- businesses, projects, or internal company programs.

I write on ethical and responsible fashion, sustainable living, business, and intentionalism as a contributor to mindbodygreen, Startup Fashion, and more. I'm the co-founder of the Ethical Fashion Retailers Network, and the entrepreneur-in-residence at AlleyWatch, the largest publication focused on the NYC startup and tech scene. I also consult to EILEEN FISHER on their woman-owned business grant program. 

Before founding IMBY, I served as Vice President of Programs and Strategy at PresenTense, a social entrepreneurship accelerator where I worked with over 300 entrepreneurs on building their businesses utilizing and developing design thinking curriculum.

I love yoga, karaoke, and seeing the world through the lens of my camera. I'm a junky for wellness and stress reduction. And I believe it's not dessert if it doesn't include chocolate.
