“I am the queen of outdoor bling, specializing in fishing and hunting clothes for men and women,” says Ms. Zacharias, whose outdoor clothing is functional and fashionable. Her childhood was filled with happy memories of fishing on the beautiful waters in Northern Minnesota with her father.

My KD Company features clothing for all kinds of outdoor sports, including hunting, fishing, hiking, biking, running and snowmobiling.

An active member of her community, Ms. Zacharias is also an Event Coordinator and Pro-Staff member of Simply Outdoor Experiences (SOE), a nonprofit 501c3. "I volunteer my time at SOE because I believe in what they do, which is touching hearts and making memories," she says.
