About the Founder – Dr. Sheena Young
Ever since she was a teenager, Baltimore native Sheena A. Young has been experimenting. She really loved her chemistry sets, but she also loved fashion. That’s why this doctor in environmental engineering with a concentration in analytical chemistry has found a way to combine her two loves by designing a line of eco-friendly products for the fashion conscious.
Drawing off her background in chemistry and environmental engineering, Young is setting out to send a message to the fashion industry: You can look good and protect the environment.
The founder and CEO of Nael Coce Corporation has designed the Ambi Collection, which is two shoes in one: an independent flat shoe that is concealed in a high heel shoe with a comfortable, odor resistant, antibacterial insole. The shoes, made from environmentally safe materials, have a distinctive green sole.
Young was inspired to design the shoe after one New Year’s Eve Party she grew tired of wearing her high heels, but dreaded walking barefoot. She talked to friends and family about the concept. She spent months researching it, leading her to realize that she had a novel ideal. With that experience in mind, she headed to design the shoe, using a combination of earth-friendly materials. As she was doing her research on her shoe, she realized that she had discovered a huge, potential market.
