Our Story

So Fancy Schmancy is a super comfy underwear company that allows girls to tackle everyday with ease while also providing a daily dose of empowerment through the use of positive affirmations.

Every girls needs to hear she is intelligent, confident, beautiful and courageous. Oh So Fancy Schmancy builds on this premise with visual encouragement. Positive affirmations serve as an essential tool in building and reinforcing a healthy self-esteem. 

I am very passionate about affirming, uplifting, and empowering girls because I can vividly recall as a pre-teen and teenager feeling like something was missing in my life, but unable to articulate it. At a very young age I removed from my mother's custody and placed in the care of my grandparents. My grandparents graciously took on the role as my caretakers, until at the age of 10, my grandmother passed away. Subsequently, I endured the instability and insecurity of being shuffled around to treatment centers and groups homes, until I eventually landed into the foster care system at the age of 13.

Unfortunately my parents never recovered from their personal issues to be active parents, and since reunification or adoption wasn’t possible, I entered the Independent Living Program. Through this program, I was emancipated at 16. I’ve had a very challenging and unique journey. I learned adult lessons as a teenage with minimal support or guidance.

Nevertheless, undeterred by adversity, and driven to overcome my humble beginnings, I studied diligently and graduate from adult high school while working a full time job. At 19, I sought and gained custody of my younger brother with whom I took on the responsibility of caring for in hopes that he wouldn't become a statistic. After my brother turned 18, I left my small town and went on to graduate college with honors at 22 and secure a position at a Fortune 500 Company. 

The skills I've learned in Corporate America have help me grow into an entrepreneur and create Oh So Fancy Schmancy. I am now focused on doing what I love - helping others. I hope that you will support Oh So Fancy Schmancy and join me in this chapter of my life . With the right resources, I can make the most impact and do my best work. I believe I stand on the shoulders of giants and have a responsibility to pay it back and pay it forward.
