Emily Treischel, Founder   When I was sick and tired of having no options for plus size clothes in Northern Nevada, I ran with a simple idea. Five years later, I am so proud to see Big, Beautiful and Broke grow with every event we do. None of this would be possible without the love and support of my family, friends and the community. Thank you all for continuing to make my dream a reality.

Tawana Devine   As a Northern Nevada native and mommy to a beautiful little girl, I am so excited to be a part of the Big, Beautiful and Broke Swap Squad. I have been around since day one and have loved watching our events change and grow over the years. I think the plus size community is important and every woman should feel beautiful at any size. Come introduce yourself to me at a future event!
