TARYN KUTCHES, CO-FOUNDER
Taryn is from Norton Shores, MI, a small beach town on the west side of the state, where she lives with her husband Pete, a four-legged son Tahoe, and their daughter Parker. Parker is a big part of her inspiration (hence the company name). During the week, you can currently find her doing the 40 hour grind as a sales engineer in the automotive industry. In the extra 128 hours of the week, she's either sleeping, trying to keep up with Parker, or working on her passion career: Parker Design.
"I would have never thought in a million years that 'designer' would be something that describes me, but it has been my most challenging and rewarding experience."
BRIAN HIDDEMA, CO-FOUNDER
For as long as Brian can remember, he's had a dream to do something like this. He just never imagined it would come in the form of women's fashion. After high school he went to the University of Arizona to study aerospace engineering and play football—yeah, yeah, a rocket scientist jock. It did not take long for him to realize that aerospace engineering wasn't the right path. He started working in the automotive industry, and while his career grew steadily over the years, his entrepreneurial spirit always pushed for more.
"One day Taryn came to me with her idea about the Rosa PAK and I knew that it was something I could get excited about."
