Meet the Reps!

Missy Hudson

Quality Control Specialist

Hello, my name is Missy. I started working here at Modcloth in the returns department in November 2011. After a short month and a half of working in returns, I was asked to transfer to the quality control team. The transformation was a great move and a better position for me to use the skills I withhold and desire to gain. I am in a relationship with a green eyed devil that I adore and have been growing to love more and more every day for the last 4.5 years. By the way, the green eyed devil is my boyfriend. I have one daughter. Her name is Fendi, and she is a toy poodle who I usually dye pink on a regular bases.


I am addicted to fashion. I could probably open a store with all of the clothing and accessories I own. Die hard fashionista!!!!!! During my free time I like to originate different accessories and clothing into my own. "A re-constructor" is what some people call it. Not going to short hand myself, I do make a lot of things from scratch as well.


I think creating these category teams was a great idea and very beneficial for you to obtain a better idea and understanding of the issues we come across as well as the outcomes across the teams. I look forward to growing a relationship with the buyers and CC reps as well. I'm excited for this new process, I hope you all are as well!

Laurel Custer

Vendor Relations Specialist

Howdy! My name is Laurel. I started working at ModCloth in May of 2012 on the Receiving team, and joined the Vendor Relations team in March. I have an energetic daughter named Zoe, a semi-neurotic cat named Gomez and an awesome boyfriend named Doug. When I'm not plugging along at vendor problems here at MC, I'm running a Girl Scout troop, planning activities for a youth camp, chillin' at home with my family, or exploring this planet we live on in any way I can. I look forward to collaborating with you to make the ModCloth experience even better for our customer.

Ashley Abraham

Customer Care Specialist

Hello All! I'm Ashley, I started at ModCloth as a seasonal employee this past October 2012 and then offered a full time position in November (I cried because I was so excited, literally)! I have been working in Customer Care and have transitioned as a member of the newly formed Care ModStylist group. I love helping to guide customers style wise as it also makes me more conscious of my own fashion choices. I have so much fun working at ModCloth, it is unlike any other company I have ever been at before and I am completely looking forward to collaborating and making this experience even more captivating for our ModGirls.


I lived in La for a year and moved back to Pittsburgh before I started working here. I hope one day to eventually transition back to the west coast. So, right now my goals are to make my experience here 100% rich, learn as much as I can, and help anywhere I am needed. In my spare time, I am a simple gal with an old soul. I like to just hang out and I love being outdoors! It's honestly the simple things in life that make me happy. I can't wait to get to know you all better and learn about the different roles you play so we can continue to improve overall!
