Christina, a Denver native, is an expert wire wrapper and organizational guru. In charge of processing orders, manufacturing, training, inventory, and quality control, we realized we couldn’t live without her on the Bloom team in 2012.
Lindsay Bloom BackmanOwner and Head of Design
Born on the east coast, nurtured on the west coast, and currently residing in Denver, Lindsay strikes design balance between the coastal influences she grew up around. As a mother of young boys, she now seeks balance between work and family, her two great loves. On a recent business trip, she realized she wore the same Bloom pieces all day as she dropped off the boys to child care in the morning, traveled to New York for a presentation, and headed out to dinner with friends afterwards. If only everything were as flexible as her jewelry.
Stacy McElhany-RodgersSales Director
Stacy is a former boutique owner of 10 years who brings wholesale, retail, buying and business experience to the Bloom mix. She has been an integral part of the team since 2011, but has worked closely with Bloom since 2007, when she officially became their #1 fan and started her extensive Bloom archive.
