I have so much to attribute to my experience as a figure skater. Like every competitive sport, skating ingrained the value of hard work, discipline and taking responsibility for my actions.

In this regard, she said,

“Once I gave birth to my girls I had a really hard time finding clothes that really resonated with me and my style, “Through that search is how Leah + Rae came to fruition.”

She continued,

“I’m really inspired by the girls and by children’s natural beauty and how pure they are.
