MIVA has been undergoing an evolution and people are starting to take notice. Our customers and friends keep telling me, "things feel differently around here," and I couldn't be more proud. This tiny shop has BIG values and it's been my intention to make that more clear, while remaining a fun and relevant place to shop.
MIVA's commitment to the environment, outdoor adventure, and responsible shopping runs deep in my veins and it's taken some time to assemble a team that gets it. It takes a lot to make MIVA run smoothly - sourcing the best new goods, daily shop tasks, top-notch customer service, content creation, marketing, the list goes on. But it takes a REALLY special group of women to do all of that while exemplifying the values that MIVA holds dear. This is so much more than a shop! And I could never make it all happen without the help of my team.
These creative, dedicated women are always ready to jump in and give it all they've got. Why do they do it? Because they believe in MIVA just as much as I do! I am honored to work side-by-side with each of them as MIVA continues to grow and I want you to know them, too.
Get to know the women that keep bringing you style, sustainability, & fun with MIVA!
