LYDIA KIRK

Head of Customer Experience
Joined ES: October 2013

Hourly squat leader, master of puns, spider-killer, and overall good influence. Lydia is our Head of Customer Experience, which means she's answering your questions thoroughly and thoughtfully, and helping with ever-tough outfit planning decisions. When Lydia isn't at Elizabeth Suzann, you can find her planning her next trip to Greece, playing soccer, or cooking her latest gluten-free recipe.

FAITH KIRK

Seamstress
Joined ES: January 2014

Studio mom, nurse, and general adult supervisor. Faith is an incredible seamstress, with an impeccable eye for quality and an uncommon patience for tough detail work. When she's not sewing your garments beautifully, she's making sure we don't burn the place down and that everybody eats lunch.

LAUREN TAYLOR

Seamstress
Joined ES: February 2014

Speedy-gonzalez and resident alien enthusiast. Lauren is one of our first seamstresses, and she's seen us go from one industrial machine to fourteen. She keeps the studio lively, and zips through production like nobody's business. Perhaps more importantly than that, she has an appreciation for the X-Files that cannot be matched.

CHRIS MARTUCCI

Partner/COO
Joined ES: May 2014

Voice of reason, systems fanatic, organizational champion, and purple-sweatsuit wearing fool. Being married to the boss can be tough, but he handles it well. Chris keeps this operation running smoothly and stops Liz from making any (too) crazy decisions. Chris oversees our finances and makes sure our website is as fun and easy for you to use as possible. He also catches all of our punctuational and grammatical errors within our site's content. (Pressure’s on, Chris!) When he isn’t working hard on our finances, website, and operations, he’s starting his next book — most likely by David Allen or Stephen Covey.

ALFIE RIVERA

Head of Production
Joined ES: September 2014

Fixer-of-everything and “yes-let's-rearrange-all-the-studio-furniture-right-now”-guy. Alfie keeps production on course, making sure your orders get sewn beautifully and on time. He handles our rowdy group of seamstresses, works with Taylor to keep fulfillment flowing seamlessly, and is always up for a new challenge. He also pulls devious pranks on everyone in the studio, but we'll get even eventually. Watch your back, Alfie.

COLETTE MIKE

Seamstress
Joined ES: October 2014

Ray of sunshine, Queen of the Snapchat selfie, and occasional Tina Turner impersonator. Colette is a super talented seamstress – she is an expert with our silk garments and outerwear. When she isn't sewing, she's modeling in our campaigns, doing makeup on set, taking care of her beautiful son Sean, or teaching us how to dance.

CHELSEA O'LEARY

Head of Media and Marketing
Joined ES: January 2015

Taco fanatic, team cheerleader, and the one who's always trying to get us to do hip-hop cardio together. Chelsea is the head of our Media and Marketing, which means she makes sure we always have great content to share, and that it gets to you in the best way possible. She coordinates photoshoots, works on campaign development, documents our process and story, and helps share it with you. Chelsea also supports our group habit of eating way too much queso and loves Jason Derulo.

MAGGIE RATERMAN

Intern
Joined ES: May 2015

In a nutshell, Maggie is a superwoman. She helps with shipping and fulfillment, production, and pattern making, and she is always up for a new challenge. If she's not whipping up a delicious homemade salad dressing, she's sharing new ideas and incredibly fun stories. She came back to intern with us for a second season, and if she doesn't return to us again at some point, we'll send Sierra to retrieve her. Sierra seems pretty tough.

ASHLEY ADKINS

Seamstress
Joined ES: July 2015

Definitely the one you want with you when you get stranded in the wilderness. Ashley is our balancing agent - she keeps up with the crazy, but also reminds us all to stay focused and grounded. She introduced our team “Yoga Moments,” and for that glorious almost nap-time in Savasana, we are eternally grateful. She's quick to learn new garments, a pant-making pro, and keeps us grounded with podcasts and Icee breaks. She also brings us fresh veggies from her garden and takes the best puppy snapchats known to mankind.

EMILY THOMPSON

Head of Cutting and Materials/Member of Media team
Joined ES: July 2015

Insane baker of cookies and maker of all amazing things to do with food. Emily handles our cutting and raw materials management, so she takes care of getting your items cut efficiently and on-grain for the sewers. Emily also works on our Media & Marketing team, ensuring consistency within our brand identity and creating beautiful, thoughtful materials for the world to see. When she isn't taking care of business, she's probably rubbing Odie's belly or instigating our next group outing to Dino's.

SUZI PAPE

Groundskeeper
Joined ES: January 2016

Our #1 fan since the get-go, Suzi is the ES fairy who keeps our building looking fresh, our pantry full of goodies, and our minds at total ease. When she isn't camping, playing with her dachshunds, or scheming to acquire sheep farms, you can find her building displays for our showroom, painting a 4-square court in our parking lot, and preparing fresh salads for the team. There truly isn't anything Suzi can't do, and we're thankful this quality runs in her family, as well. ;)

SIERRA GRABLE

Production Assistant
Joined ES: March 2016

Bright and energetic, Sierra hails from Portland (but we plan on keeping her right here in Nashville). She loves a good tallboy, and embroiders the most hilarious and intricate sweaters. She also introduced us to the best sandwich in Nashville, so she's definitely a keeper. Sierra packages your garments and ensures they arrive at your doorstep safely and soundly, works with the cutting department, and generally keeps things under control in the wild west that is the warehouse.

MONICA DIEHL

Seamstress
Joined ES: March 2016

A gentle but strong force, Monica is an incredibly focused seamstress. She makes sure your French seams are sewn as precisely as possible. When she's not sewing, you can find her reading an impressive novel or cooking up some bacon and eggs in the studio kitchen. She reminds us all to slow down a little bit and enjoy each moment we spend together, and it feels like she's been part of the team for quite some time.

TAYLOR PELLEGRINO

Head of Production Planning and Shipping
Joined ES: March 2016

Our Nashville native. Taylor, recent graduate from O'More College of Design, pays close attention to detail and is an important part of our production team. She makes sure your linen, silk, and cotton pieces arrive on time and wrinkle free. Taylor keeps things in the warehouse organized and on track. Taylor loves to box and watch Food Network. You can find her smiling no matter what — especially when she is making and eating chocolate chip cookies.

CHLOE MOORE

Seamstress
Joined ES: June 2016

Chloe is an incredible and speedy seamstress! She loves to sew linen and can make up to 19 Georgia Tees in one day. Chloe helped make costumes for Cinderella on Broadway, and she recently adopted a cat named Brutus. When Chloe isn’t sewing, you can find her at Belcourt Theatre or working wardrobe in major productions.

KATIE MOSLEY

Production Assistant
Joined ES: August 2016

Katie is one of our amazing production assistants. When she’s not pressing and trimming your orders, helping with shipping, or bundling garments that are waiting to be sewn, she can most likely be found working on a new ceramic project at home, watching Chef’s Table on Netflix or eating an amazing meal with her husband. Katie comes to us from Athens, GA where she majored in photography while in school at the University of Georgia. Her kind spirit and detail oriented nature are essential to the process around here!

CAMILLE WITT

Seamstress
Joined ES: September 2016

Camille is our newest seamstress! She has jumped in feet first, and it feels like she’s been here all along. Camille loves to write freeform poetry, put avocados on just about anything, and dance in the rain whenever possible. She appreciates the juxtaposition of Nashville living — she is near an ever-growing city but can reach the water and countryside to recharge in under 15 minutes. We’re so happy she’s with us — just in time to launch the Cold Weather Collection!

ALEX McENTIRE

Seamstress
Joined ES: September 2016

Effortlessly stylish and kind as can be, Alex is a seamstress here at ES! When she isn’t sewing your linen, silk, and cotton orders, you can find her working incredibly hard at photoshoots and sample sales. She is a four-square champ during lunchtime, too. Alex has the best collection of vintage turquoise rings, loves to dance, and could eat Asian food any day of the week.
