Debra McLendon spent 25 years in the apparel and soft home furnishings industry, but abruptly found herself without a job after the financial crisis of 2008. Knowing she had an undeniable passion for the fashion and textiles industry she bet on herself and went back to school. This move paid off in a big way in that Debra ended up graduating with an advanced degree from the college of textiles at NC State and going on to secure a teaching position. Her belief in her passion and determination paved the way for her success.
