In 2012, Marian graduated from Appalachian State University with a bachelor’s in Apparel Design and Merchandising. After graduating, she worked as a nanny and debuted her own design company, but Marian has always wanted to use her skills in fashion design to serve the Lord and was looking for opportunities. On a service trip to Kenya in 2013, Marian heard about Freedom Global’s idea for a new business selling Kenyan made products in the United States–and she knew she wanted to be a part of it! Now, Marian manages the US operations of the new business, Freedom Threads, coordinating house parties and designing products. Along with creating custom designs for friends, Marian loves taking road trips, hiking, and butter crunch ice cream cones.
