I founded Accel Lifestyle because, even though there are so many fitness apparel companies today, none of them combine everything that is most important to me and many fitness enthusiasts. I was looking for a fashionable fitness apparel company that has a fully transparent supply chain (no sweatshops) and doesn’t have fabric that smells from sweat. What did I find?
I majored in Chemistry with a Specialization in Biochemistry from the University of Virginia and worked in labs both at UVA and Brown University. With my science background and love for fitness and fashion, I have custom created the fabric and the entire company from scratch. Accel Lifestyle is starting with shirts for men and women (because those stink the most...haha!) and will eventually scale to a full fitness apparel line.
I was also an internationally-recognized sales representative for Fortune 500 companies and use the tools I have learned to foster meaningful relationships. I believe in the power of collaborations, appreciate this beautiful life we were given and try to make people smile wherever I go.
While working on Accel Lifestyle, I became a motivational speaker and author, empowering others to take the steps towards starting their own company and breaking thru their fears. I consider myself a “Positivity Enthusiast” and I find inspiration and motivation from other entrepreneurs before me that had an idea, were persistent and resilient, and now run successful corporations.
“If they can do it, I can do it!” is a simple, yet powerful phrase, that encourages me daily. I want to be that same encouragement for other people trying to make a positive change in their life.
