About Michelle

Beautiful woman at golden hour wearing a Lysande headband.Hi friends!  I am the founder and maker behind Lysande .  I love adventures, red lipstick, mountain biking, stale gummy bears, and…my cats. Proud #catmoms out there raise your hands! Lysande was founded in Charlottesville, VA where I landed for graduate school and recently moved to Connecticut where I live with my husband and said cats.

Lysande was born in April 2017 shortly after I started treatment for Type 1 narcolepsy with cataplexy. I had been recently diagnosed after over 20 years of inexplicable collapsing and sleepiness. Treatment has been a smashing success and I quickly started using my wakefulness to start a business. Because as fabulous as narcolepsy treatment is, it isn’t all glitz, glamour, and uninterrupted wakefulness. I’ll always be symptomatic and my medication has gnarly side effects so the flexibility afforded me by being self employed has me doing a happy dance EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. That’s not a joke. There’s a LOT of bad dancing around here. 

Lysande is all about embracing the strong AND vulnerable inside each of us. It’s about headwear that gets you in touch with your inner Wonder Woman. And it’s about getting things done with effortless style, sass, and swagger; another thing that gets me dancing for joy.
