Christine here! I am a Southwest raised cowgirl. I was born in Arizona, where I spent the first 10 years of my life. Nothing beats an Arizona desert sunset, that is for sure. I then moved to California, where my love of the western industry, fashion, and lifestyle became apart of me. I fell in love with the sport of rodeo and keeping our western heritage alive! I enjoyed competing in rodeo queen contests and held a few queen titles. I also showed reining and cutting horses.
I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California with Bachelors in Early Education. Shortly after I realized my passion for western fashion, could not be ignored. I worked for Justin Boots at the 2013 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and I was hooked. In 2014 I moved to Denver, to work for Cinch Jeans on their marketing and sales team. I enjoyed being able to travel the country visiting western stores and working events. I also was able to design their promotional items.
I now reside in Larkspur, Colorado on my families ranch with my husband. I finally am able to make this dream of owning my own store a reality. I plan to travel the rodeo road and trade shows, meeting new people and sharing my style with the western industry.
Thank you for supporting this cowgirls dream.
