Amy was tired of designing clothes that would just end up in landfills in six months. As a proud member of the Navajo nation, Amy tried to live a life of sustainability and wanted to instill the same values in her daughter.
That’s why Amy said goodbye to the corporate world of fashion and started creating one of a kind upcycled clothing for her brand Orenda Tribe.
Not only was she able to teach her daughter about business and sustainability she could now hire designers and makers from around the world, including indigenous people.
Here comes Claire
Amy found the perfect match in her advisor Claire Van Holland. Claire has a history of financial analysis, and Xero allows her to give Amy and her clients a great overview of their finances.
At first, Amy wanted to run her own books, but with more time on her hands to focus on her business, Orenda Tribe grew so much she needed Claire to take over. Empowered by Xero, Claire gives Amy the tools and guidance to help her business succeed and spend more time focusing on what she loves.
