A lawyer and entrepreneur, Sierra Elizabeth lets nothing hold her back in life. In this episode, Merle Vaughn chats with Sierra about how she decided to stay authentic - even in the courtroom, why she started her own business and why she chose to earn a law degree instead of following in her family’s entertainment industry footsteps.
Sierra received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Michigan where she was an All-American in basketball and track. She also received her Law degree cum laude from Duke University School of Law and her master’s degree in Psychology from Duke University Graduate School.
As a lawyer, Sierra has a wide-ranging complex commercial litigation practice including toxic torts and other environmental and products liability matters, trademark infringement, entertainment fee disputes, and breach of contract. She has played an integral role on several trial teams and has litigated in both federal and state courts, arbitration hearings, private mediations, and negotiations. Sierra also serves as a guest legal correspondent for CNN Headline News.
After years of frustration searching for business suits to complement her athletic body type and fashion-forward personal style, Sierra set out to learn everything she could about manufacturing suits – for every body type. Sierra decided to take a bold and unexpected leap into the fashion world and launched SuitKits, a groundbreaking online shopping service that allows women to custom design suits and suit separates according to their exact measurements, preferred style, color, and cut.
