owner & co-founder
McKinsey was born and raised in West Texas and went to Oklahoma State University. After college, she moved to Dallas, got married and had her first baby. Being a stay at home mom is what she thought she strived to be until she realized she thrived working outside of the home. In 2015, she started a stationery design studio where she mixed her love for pattern, color, and creativity - but, funky interiors and textiles were always in the back of her mind.
In 2018, she and Lissa met, and the two shared mutual dreams and goals, and The Loom and Company was born - officially launching in 2020, three weeks before COVID. The rest is history! McKinsey is all things creative & chaotic and leans on Lissa for all things business, which makes the two the perfect duo.
She lives in Tulsa with her husband, Whit, their 2 children, Emma and Hollis, and their French bulldog, Louie.
owner & co-founder
Lissa grew up in San Antonio, Texas, and graduated from Baylor University where she studied business and information technology. In 2002, she moved to Dallas for her first job in the corporate world. From a young age, she watched her mom fill creative roles and realized she wanted something similar, thus leading her to explore the life of being an entrepreneur.
In 2010, Lissa met her West Texas husband, and in 2012 the two were married and ready to start a family. Several years and another baby later, Lissa decided to take a leap and make her dream of starting and building a business into a reality. She started in jewelry design and later created a franchise tailored to teaching others how to own and operate their own business - leading Lissa to meet her now co-founder and business partner, McKinsey.
Lissa lives in San Antonio with her husband, Ty, their 2 girls, McLean and Millie, and their Labrador, Sissy.
