Meet the (goal)Maker: Keri Rowe


(goal)Makers are incredible human beings making magic happen. With a radical vision and huge goals, they put themselves out there to be seen, to create, and to share their unique gifts with the World. I honor the action of making it happen, where willpower meets movement and the goal vibration is felt.

Meet Keri Rowe.

Keri is one incredible goal crushing human being, we met while working together at lululemon athletica on the Recruiting team sharing the job love and attracting sweaty humans to wear spandex everyday. She is a nature lover, snowboarding goddess, a support when you need a shoulder to lean and one creative heartbeat. She has launched her own nature-inspired jewelry line out of BC, called Coastal Chains. I am honored to share that we have collaborated on handcrafted earring series where 50% of goods sold go to support my trip to Ethiopia with Imagine1Day!

Meet the (goal)Maker!

I am Keri, I live in Vancouver, BC which I believe to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. My favourite things in life consist of: travelling, snowboarding, camping, hiking, playing with dogs, laughing to the point of crying, cuddling with my man and of course crafting beautiful jewellery.

Tell us about Coastal Chains:  Coastal Chains was born in the spring of 2014. My inspiration draws from nature which leaves me designing in geometric shapes. If you asked me a year ago if I thought this hobby would turn into a business I never would have guessed it. I am so grateful for all the love, support and encouragement along the way. I can't wait to see what's in store for coastal chains in the next year.

Crush at age 14: Jim Morrison, handsome, talented and rebellious

A goal that I am living that makes my palms sweat: Hiking the West Coast Trail in the summer

Most recent failure and what I learned from it: I ended up on a band of cliffs while backcountry snowboarding earlier this year. One of the rules to backcountry touring is to always go down in single file and properly plan your route, we got caught up in the enjoyment of the powder and abolished this rule, never again.

What is your spirit animal? I just took one of those weird online quizzes, it said I was a butterfly which is not accurate at all. So, second up I was a tiger - which sounds way cooler.

How do you take your coffee/tea? Black tea super milky.

My thoughts on men with beards: If I didn't I'd be living in the wrong city.

My thoughts on men in flannel: Yes!... more flannel less suits!
