About the Founders

Mandy & Michelle


Currently, Lumi consists of Mandy and Michelle, sisters, and their very supportive husbands. Customers wonder when the sisters will quit their jobs and focus on Lumi full time. The truth is they both love their “day” jobs and can’t see themselves giving them up anytime soon. Mandy works as a fifth grade teacher at an elementary school in town. Her work is very important to her, the students she works with each year, and the community she serves. Being a part of her students’ world is priceless to Mandy! Michelle spends her days treating cancer patients at a local hospital. She, along with her colleagues, many of which the sisters both call friends, are an amazing team of professionals in radiation oncology. They care for patients at a most vulnerable time in their lives and are loved and greatly appreciated by all.

Even though there is no plan for Mandy and Michelle to leave their first careers in the foreseeable future, they share a similar passion for their work with Lumi. They have a calling to help women by providing an earth friendly, locally made, and amazingly comfortable clothing brand.

Mandy says, “It is the greatest feeling seeing a customer wearing our clothing with a glowing smile on her face.”

“She looks great and feels great. Her Lumi apparel lets her do the amazing work she was called to do.” adds Michelle.
