Waterbury, Chantel

Chantel Waterbury '97, founder and CEO of Chloe + Isabel, was interviewed by the Huffington Post. Waterbury  launched Chloe + Isabel after a 15-year tenure in the corporate jewelry industry. She developed, designed and sourced jewelry for brands such as Kenneth Cole, Gap Inc., Macy's, Nordstrom, Target, Kohl's and specialty retailers, and served as Director of Luxury Jewelry for DFS, division of LVMH. Chantel's interest in the direct selling space stemmed from her years at Santa Clara University, where she paid her way through college selling Cutco Cutlery, and was recognized as the top producer in the Western U.S. She regularly guest lectures at Santa Clara University, San Francisco State University, and several specialty fashion and design schools, on topics ranging from product development to retail math and merchandising.

"I have been blessed with amazing mentors throughout my life that have taken me under their wings and shown me that you can get ahead with kindness, integrity, and hard work," she said. Read the full article, "Women in Business: Q&A."

Blanar, David

David Blanar '97 writes, "Hallo from England! I recently wrapped up an MA in Systematic Theology & Philosophy from the University of Nottingham—yep, you read that right. Really enjoyable work, it brought back lots of memories and made me all the more grateful for Fr. Tollini's lectures. Much love from overseas!"
