Katherine McGrath

Hometown: Darien, Connecticut

Dudley day-in-my-life: The best part of a small business is that it’s all hands on deck, so everyone helps out with, and has a say in, everything. My role broadly covers brand operations, and I love the analytics, production planning and forecasting, and digital media aspects. We now have some amazing employees to help with fulfillment and customer service, which I am so thankful for!

Personal style muse: Not one person specifically, but I always love Audrey Hepburn’s and Jackie Kennedy Onassis’ style.

Pinch-me moment: When our website went live and we sent out our first newsletter to family and friends, resulting in our first sale.  

Secret superpower:  I am not sure how much of a superpower this is, but I try to provide humor and a sense of calm when things are stressful.

Sunshine on a cloudy day: My kids laughing!

Wise words: Perfection is an imperfection.  

Go-to movie: I am a sucker for a corny sports movies such as Remember the Titans. Being a good teammate was important to me growing up as an athlete, and continues to be as we grow our DS team.  

Personal soundtrack: Anything by James Taylor, especially “Sweet Baby James.”  

Desert island must-have: Fleece for the chilly nights (naturally).

Guilty pleasure: Snuggling up with my kids on our big blue couch.
