Mo is a creative, strategic business leader with over 20 years of combined experience in non-profit and design.
She moved to New York City in 1993 to attend Parsons School of Design, where she received the Gold Thimble Award from Donna Karen. Since 1997, she was a successful fashion designer at respected companies including Joseph Abboud, Ralph Lauren, & Isaac Mizrahi. In 2008 she joined PVH as Design Director and launched The Insignia Dress Shirt division for high-end brand licensing, which included John Varvatos, Michael Kors, Elie Tahari, and Todd Snyder to name a few.
Her years in the apparel industry exposed her to the unfortunate environmental and humanitarian impact. After the devastating collapse of Rana Plaza in 2013, she decided it was time to use her skills and knowledge to “do good” within the industry, and made a career transition to non-profit corporate foundation work at The Tommy Hilfiger Foundation, now The PVH Foundation.
In 2017 she received an Advanced Diploma in Coaching at NYU and is using it to help others find their true passions and overcome fear of making a career change at any stage of life. She is passionate about human rights; particularly working conditions in the apparel industry and is focusing her next chapter on creating positive social impact for businesses, consumer education, empowering artisans, and supporting culturally vulnerable teens.
