About Allision Childs:
Allison Childs is the Founder and CEO of Vivi G’z, LLC. After a passionate and successful 20-year retail career in merchandising, visual design and product training, Allison decided to chase her entrepreneurial dream of having her own retail company. At the same time, she gave birth to her third child and had been dreaming up a solution to one her biggest pet peeves as a mom; the case of the missing sock. Allison spent months perfecting the prototype of the first Vivi G’z baby bootie before submitting her patent. Named after her third daughter, Vivienne, Vivi G’z baby bootie is now a patent-pending product and the dream of owning her own retail company is a reality.
Giving back is important to Allison, so she partners with Soles4Souls and a portion of her annual profits go to help their mission of “wearing out poverty” worldwide.
