Tell us a little bit about yourself:

I am a born and raised Southern gal who wears many different hats. I am a middle school keyboarding teacher by day and a YouTuber by night. I probably spend as much time working on content as I do teaching. I am also a coach’s wife, cheer mom (my daughter does competitive cheer), and an avid reader. I am married to my high school sweetheart. He is also a teacher and the head high school football coach for the school district where we work, and our kids attend. We have two kids. A 9-year-old daughter, Kate, and a 5-year-old son, Derrick.

 

Why did you want to be a Brand Ambassador?

I am all about supporting the military and small businesses, especially ones that have such an amazing mission. I already have an obsession with bags, so when I found out about R.Riveter and their handmade bags with a story, I got really excited.

Plus, I have family currently serving in the military. My sister-in-law is a Tech Sergeant in the Air Force where she is an Independent Duty Medical Technician. She has missed many family events and milestones, but we are very thankful for FaceTime and social media. Also, my grandfather served in WWII. As a result of his service, he fought many battles both during, and long after the war.

When filling out the Brand Ambassador application for R.Riveter, I had them in the back of my mind. I understand the impact that service has on those in the military and their families, and I wanted to offer my support.

 

 

 

What is your favorite R.Riveter bag?

My favorite bag is definitely the black Otto with brown leather. I wear many hats on a daily basis and the Otto helps with my busy lifestyle. It has a large interior pocket that holds so many daily essentials. Plus, the side pockets are the perfect addition to the bag. All of my grab-and-go items, like Chapstick, cough drops, and my keys get placed in there. My favorite part is the crossbody strap. I am all about being hands-free when out and about. I could really talk about this bag all day.

The Army's Green Class A Uniform was retired in 2015 after 61 years of service. During its time in service, it has been witness to tearful goodbyes, endless adventures, unmistakable courage, eternal brotherhood, selfless pride and bravery that covers pages upon pages of history books.

Here are 5 things you didn't know about the Army's Green Class A Uniform: 1. From the Revolutionary War to the Spanish American War, the US Army wore only blue dress uniforms. In a noble attempt to bring more prestige and dignity to the Army's ranks, Army Greens became the official uniform the year after the Korean War armistice. 2. The Army Class A Uniform was influenced by British and French military traditions, as well as contemporary American civilian fashion trends.  3. The Army Class A Uniform was typically worn during formal and ceremonial occasions. 4. Many civilian workers were mistaken for Army personnel because of massive use of army surplus clothing after World War II. 5. In 2006, it was announced the "dress blue uniform" would be making a comeback and eventually reign supreme. Today's troops wear Army Blue uniforms, which pay homage to the "Virginia Blues" worn by George Washington and the men on his first commands.
    This Memorial Day, R.Riveter launched a small batch collection of Limited Edition Ottos, crafted from recycled Class A uniforms.

    The Army’s Class A Uniform was retired in 2015, after 61 years of service. This Memorial Day, we are so proud to launch a small batch of Limited Edition Ottos, crafted from recycled Class A uniforms. To many, the Class A Uniform is simply a few pieces of olive cloth, some gold buttons and a bit of thread. To a military spouse, it is a reminder of the courage, loyalty, integrity and strength that is possessed by all who were fortunate enough to have worn it.  Many of us at R.Riveter remember the Class A uniform as the first dress uniform we ever saw our spouses wear. We remember the Class A uniform as the symbol of love that led us across the dance floor at our first military ball. We remember the Class A uniform as the wave of emotions that poured into the hall on homecoming day. We remember the Class A uniform, that still hangs in the back of the closet, as a symbol that our men are more than capable of doing their jobs, and doing them proudly. 

    Each Limited Edition Class A Otto is one-of-a-kind, crafted by military spouses, from recycled military materials. No two bags are alike, and each one tells the story of the journey its materials have been on. Shop our small batch collection of Limited Edition Ottos:
