Dayna Isom Johnson knew from when she was eight years old making and selling mud pies in rural Virginia, that she wanted to be in the creative fashion industry. Think about this: Eight years old, and you already have your career planned out and designed! Dayna speaks brightly about the clarity of her creative path unsupported by racial "mirrors," but powerfully guided by her working Aunt in corporate spaces who took her on a brisk and fast journey to NYC.
Small town girl made good in NYC, Dayna now leads Etsy as their principal trend expert, guiding one of the country's most powerful and wealth-generating tech companies, to make decisions around colors, fashion and fun to make colorful style decisions based on her gut backed by data analytics.
