Three of the women who inspire me most: my mom, my sister, and Somaly Mam.

FEED Kenya Purse

My go-to purse for nights on the town: each one is handcrafted by a co-op of women and deaf artisans in Kenya and provides 50 school meals.

MAKE Cosmetics

A new cosmetics brand that donates one-third of its revenue to help women-led cooperatives in the U.S. I'm loving their bright colors for spring!

Lean In

A book that needs no introduction. I admire Sheryl Sandberg for sharing valuable lessons from her career with women who are looking to forge their own paths in the workplace.

Same Sky Bracelets

True to the FEED ethos, Same Sky bracelets both empower women artisans and save lives. These beautiful pieces are hand-beaded by women artisans and provide healthcare and education to HIV-ravaged communities.

FEED Woven Bracelets

Woven in Colombia by the Zenu tribe using traditional techniques and made from palm leaves that have been naturally dyed. I wear mine separately or stacked, and love knowing this bundle of bracelets provides 10 school meals.

Rwanda Basket

This vibrant basket is part of the artisan collection at Macy's and was handcrafted in Rwanda. A chic and compassionate addition to your kitchen counter!

Makers Documentary

I was thrilled to participate in this ground-breaking video initiative featuring interviews with hundreds of women trailblazers, known and unknown. The full documentary is now available online- prepare to be moved!


I'm a big fan of LearnVest. Originally created to improve women's financial literacy, the site now provides planning and investment advice for everyone. Also be sure to check out our Q&A with founder Alexa von Tobel to hear about her lessons learned in starting a thriving tech startup.
