Sherrill Mosee, inventor and designer of MinkeeBlue set out to solve a problem she calls, the ‘overload bag syndrome’. Like many women, Sherrill often carried two or three bags to work—a purse, laptop bag, lunch bag, and sometimes shoes in her purse. She wanted to create an organizational fashion bag for busy professionals whose role changes throughout the day—from executive, to fitness enthusiast, traveler and mom.
Sherrill is former president of Family Care Solutions, a nonprofit organization she founded to promote higher education among low-income women with children. The organization awarded over $3 million in childcare scholarships to help women with children stay in school and graduate earning a college degree. She came up with the idea for MinkeeBlue after traveling to work with her normal three bags and seeing the young moms struggle in the same way—with their purse, diaper bag and book bag. Mosee put her formal education to work, a degree in engineering, and came up with the patented design. She describes MinkeeBlue as a reflection of who we are and what we do in our daily lives. “Your day is in the Bag”, says Mosee.
