I have a specific memory of a conversation that took place about a month before I launched Mod + Jo. It was in the spring of 2016 and I was sitting in the back of a taxi with a fellow expat, in the middle of Chinese rush our traffic, telling her about my idea behind the brand. She asked me point blank if I felt that I would try and take this concept full time once we moved back to the states. I remember thinking that this idea was absurd and completely out of my reach. I still look upon this small moment so fondly, because it shows me how far Mod + Jo has come as a brand in such a short amount of time. Don't let me fool you - there were a lot of long nights and plenty of self doubt and failure along the way. But there was also passion to create something that helped women feel confident and a little more fierce. It wasn't just that drive that brought us this new chapter - YOU have truly made this dream come true. Without your love and support of Mod + Jo, non of this would have been able to come to fruition and for that I am so grateful. Together, we've created a sustainable brand that is slowly creating more jobs within the local community and building a tribe of women that build each other up through commonality and setting aside our differences. I will never be able to express my full gratitude for you being here, reading this, and following along with Mod + Jo's journey. From the entire team of Mod + Jo, we love you and we're so glad you're here.

Why I'm here:

There is nothing else I would rather be doing. My passion has always been to create and this has become that outlet for me. From designing each collection, building our online presence and problem solving our way through each day. I feel so grateful and fulfilled building Mod+Jo as a brand and the team that has formed behind it.

Current fave:

I have been wearing my Serpent pendant non stop since we launched her earlier this season but I also love the Whitney necklace and the statement it provides. Shop Serpent > + Shop Whitney >

Off time:

On the off chance that I am not working in some capacity, I am spending as much time as I can with my husband and pup working on DIY home renovations, being his assistant in his wood shop or binge watching the next best streaming series.

Why I'm here:

I love working at Mod+Jo because I feel at home there. We get sh*t done but we also enjoy each other, support each other, and work together to tackle new challenges - both professional and personal. I love that my work is challenging, I get to be creative, and there’s a lot of checking things off of lists, which is so satisfying!        

Current fave:

My favorite piece is hard to choose. I have been wearing the Kristens in emerald lately. I wear the Queen almost every day, and the Trinity Ear Jackets are usually in my second lobe piercing along with the Ear Cuff. I like a simple, easy look and I always feel cooler and put-together with those three pieces on. Shop Kristen > + Shop Trinity Jackets > + Shop Ear Cuff >

Off time:

Right now I’m finishing a master’s degree and in training to be a professional counselor, so when I’m not at Mod+Jo I am either seeing clients or sitting on the couch with my pets, catching up on reading. I dream of having spare time again so I can get back to baking and making pen and paper art.

Why I'm here:

The best part about working for Mod and Jo is by far knowing that any piece I make has the opportunity to make someone feel amazing and come alive when they put it on. I have been a stylist for the past couple of years and it is the joy of the work to see people shine! I also work with gals who inspire me daily and that makes my 9-5 not feel so much like work.

Current fave:

How can I just pick one?! The Christopher is my long time love, but these days I love to layer her with The Kyle, a chain link necklace that has a bit of an edge.... yes please! Shop St. Christopher > + Shop Kyle >

Off time:

When I’m not making all the golden things at MJ I'm most likely doing something fashion wise - blogging, selling, styling, or as of late dabbling in making my own clothing. I love all things holistic health too but most importantly I’m crazy in love with a very tall man and very playful pup, we are the three amigos and spending my days with them is a dream.

Why I'm here:

I’m constantly inspired. Not only am I inspired by the space and the stunning jewelry, but also by my fellow female warriors who I’m blessed to call coworkers make me feel so special! We encourage one another, make each other laugh, educate one another on various hobbies and passions of ours, and genuinely respect and appreciate one another! Also, I’m constantly shook at Jordan. Holy boss lady queen bee. She’s just as magical as you’d hope and she’s just as stunning as her jewels! She’s the perfect concoction of business lady meets stellar jewelry designer, and it shows. ​

Current fave:

The Kyle Necklace is my absolute favorite piece we sell right now - I love bold pieces and especially gold jewelry, so my little 90s baby heart is obsessed with her! Shop Kyle >

Off time:

I’m either with family, shooting freelance photography, constructing a fun, weird, interesting photo backdrop for friends and events, or seriously snuggling one of my pups. Also, I have the best friends in the world who keep me sane!
