started KD to create an opportunity to empower all people to
enjoy the great outdoors. We are a company that promotes outdoor
activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, biking, running,
snowmobiling, etc. We have included each season winter, spring,
summer, and fall into our clothing line. KD understands extreme
weather conditions and has incorporated this knowledge into
our products. We make our clothing to fit every shape and size,
to be fully functional, to look fantastic, and to be comfortable.
We want people who buy our clothing to not only feel great while
wearing it, but to feel great about the price!
Our vision is to grow a profitable company that will have
the ability to support local charities that focus on youth,
individuals with special needs, people with disabilities, and
veterans. We want to give back to you in your community!
clothing items will help everyone look fabulous and feel comfortable
while enjoying the great outdoors! Our clothing will be functional
on all levels so that people of all shapes and sizes will be
able to buy and use our clothing. The company will be leveraging
its culture and its slogan Kan Do to develop a recognized and
sought after brand of high quality sport clothing and accessories.
KD will partner with a local specialty garment manufacturer
that has the capacity and expertise to design and produce the
KD line of garments. The company will distribute its garments
and accessories by being a vendor at high profile outdoor and
indoor sporting events and shows. These types of high traffic
events provide an excellent opportunity to sell KDs product
and give the brand a high level of exposure. In addition it
provides the company with the opportunity to promote its website
and online store.
I have been an avid outdoors woman all of my life. I enjoy
hunting, fishing, four wheeling, snowmobiling, playing sports,
traveling, and riding my Harley. I especially enjoy the water
as I grew up between two small lakes on our family farm in Richville,
MN. I have been fishing my whole life and owe everything that
I know to my father. I have my own boat and enjoy taking anyone
and everyone fishing. Catching fish is fun, but teaching others
how to catch a fish and seeing the excitement that goes along
with it is simply amazing. I enjoy all outdoor activities and
my passion is sharing the great outdoors with others!
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, and a
K-12 Native American Culture and Language Degree. I teach the
Dakota Language, outfit making, sewing, beading, dance, and
culture. I am a jingle dress dancer and I enjoy going to pow
wows. I am a Native American Author of a children's book called
"Taku Wadaka He?" "What Do You See?" It
is written in the Dakota Language and in English.
am the Event Coordinator of Simply Outdoor Experiences which
is a Non-Profit 501 C(3) Organization. We touch hearts by creating
over 20,000 hours of family time every year through our program.
Simply Outdoor Experiences mission statement is Empowering
kids and adults with the knowledge and resources to create positive
outdoor experiences. Their motto is Its easier
to raise boys and girls, than repair men and women. I
have learned so much by participating in their one day events.
I love to show people how to fish and this organization is the
greatest. Touching hearts and making memories is what we do
The defining success of my business will be that I am an
Outdoorswoman! I qualify that by saying that I have
been an avid sportsperson all of my life. I have surrounded
myself with a circle of friends and acquaintances that share
my passion. For several years I have been attending the outdoor
and sport shows in the upper Midwest. In recent years I have
had the opportunity to work trade show booths with some of my
friends. The knowledge I have gained from this experience coupled
with my passion, is the driving force that motivated me to start
My goal is to empower everyone: women and men, children,
special needs people, disabled people, and veterans. I Kan Do
anything if I put my mind to it, Dont Tell Me I Kant!
This is a very powerful statement and I believe it!
