In fact, Jamie figured she’d never leave. But then Jamie’s entire team was laid off during the pandemic, and although she had financial security from her husband, she wanted to find a career that would fulfill her the job at Kate Spade did. After a stint in consulting for a swimwear company, Jamie realized that she had the time, know-how, and resources to start her own company, and she found a business partner that she believed would help her succeed. And then this happened.
