A few years ago I was grabbing coffee with a friend, a nurse practitioner at a nearby hospital. As my friend tugged up her sagging scrub pants for the third time, she exclaimed that she couldn’t stand her workwear but there was simply nothing else out there. With a background in fashion and knowing how vast the apparel landscape was, I was unconvinced. After searching for months for comfortable and functional scrubs, I realized that I had to take matters into my own hands (literally).
I took my friend’s scrubs and completely redesigned them, taking in the inseam, moving the pockets, bringing in the shoulders, and more. She loved them – and so did her colleagues. As word spread, I started getting more and more calls to fix scrubs. Soon after, I turned to my best friend Trina Spear and we realized instead of fixing scrubs, we should devote ourselves to creating the most technically advanced, comfortable, and beautifully designed scrubs.
