Caleigh is founder of Best Foot Forward and a shoe fanatic. Some would call it fate, as her first words were “new shoes”. She’s rocked everything from Barney slippers to pink cowboy boots and now BFF sandals. Her passion for social change on the African continent led her to develop Best Foot Forward. In addition to BFF, Caleigh finds herself obsessing over large dogs and making (and consuming) banana bread. Having rowed for four years at Northwestern, she is now looking ahead at new challenges including competitive cycling and climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Caleigh isn’t all about pretty shoes. She also managed to graduate from Northwestern University with honors. While attending the 2015 Clinton Global Initiative University Conference in Miami she was named a Resolution Fellow, which awarded her seed money for BFF. Caleigh has accepted a Princeton in Africa Fellowship, where she is working for the International Rescue Committee in Tanzania, while also working on BFF.
