Nabee Socks was born from an idea I had during a long night shift as a nurse. I had no business background except for selling Beanie Babies on eBay when I was in the 6th grade, but I figured that my experiences were probably comparable to an MBA and decided to give entrepreneurship a try. (Believe it or not, Beanie Babies paid for my freshman year of college.) So, I went to the drawing board, also known as Google, and started researching.

Two months later, feeling only marginally wiser, I started a Kickstarter campaign to raise some money. I was shocked when the campaign made nearly $13,000 with the help of 253 generous people. Initially flying blind and putting in 70-hour weeks, I was continually encouraged by the amazing responses from all of our fans.  As a result, Nabee Socks has done everything possible to provide awesome compression socks and customer service to repay all the incredible support.

I studied biochemistry and nursing at Georgetown University with plans to become an anesthetist. However, after three years of working as a nurse, I realized that I was in love with entrepreneurship, not anesthesia. This is when I decided to start Nabee Socks.

Since that time I've had the opportunity to design a company and lifestyle that truly reflect my passions.  I love being an entrepreneur and have found so much joy in my life since putting on my first pair of Nabee Socks. My hope is that this happiness and enthusiasm is evident in all of our services and products.
