Maker’s Row: 20 Women in American Manufacturing
Author: Karl Delossantos
Anna Livermore, the founder and CEO of V. Mora Consulting and Product Development, started her career in an untraditional way. Although she has been sewing since she was a little girl, it was a 75-year old ex-factory worker from Iraq who really got the ball rolling for her. Anna said that she “taught me the fine skills of what production patterning and sewing really looked like. That is the skill that grew my company to where it is today.” Starting in her spare bedroom, she now has offices, staff, and contractors around the world.
She describes herself as “an extremist in all ways.” She has competed in International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competitions. She is also training 2 hours a day for an upcoming a May figure competition.
