First Up Meet Co-Founder Jennifer Murdock!
Jennifer moved from Cincinnati, OH to New York City in 2004 to pursue her modeling career. She followed in her Grandmother Honey’s (inspiration today for Lucky Honey’s brand name) footsteps and was quickly signed by Eileen Ford. She was busy at work with a successful commercial print modeling career and has been featured in campaigns for Frederick Fekkai, Lipton Ice Tea and featured in magazine such as Shape, First, and Women's Health to name a few. While with Ford, she was introduced to the Fit and Showroom Board and was deemed as a perfect size to be a successful fit model. She has and still works for many major brands such as J.Crew, Gap, Michael Kors, Vineyard Vines, Club Monaco, Ann Taylor, and private label designers for Bloomingdales and Saks. Being a model, especially a fit model, its no secret that appearance and keeping consistent measurements is everything. This is how Jennifer was introduced to Pilates. She started to take several classes a week and soon was a Pilates lover! In 2009 she became a fully certified instructor through Pilates Academy International in New York City. After teaching at several studios in NYC including Equinox, she was always required to wear socks when teaching. Nothing ever fit quite right or gave her the style or functionality she was looking for. She was inspired by ballerina fashion and was mentored by some of the top tech designers in NYC, learning all the ins and outs of how to produce a garment. Jennifer brought the idea to her first entrepreneurial partner, her sister Bethany, and this is how Lucky Honey was born! Jennifer resides in Brooklyn, New York with her husband Mac and doggie Peanut. She teaches pilates on the regular and is a fit and showroom model signed with Elite Model Management. Here are some of her favorite things...
