To my dear Kade & Vos family,
It is with great sadness that I write this letter to announce my resignation from K&V. After much reflection and with the help of my close friends and family, I have realized that for my own health, and the continued success of Kade & Vos, it is best I step away from the company.
In the last quarter of 2018, I began noticing a decline of my personal and professional wellbeing. I was feeling exhausted, unproductive, and very anxious. I went to a doctor and therapist and am now being treated for my mental health. It was affecting me so greatly, that I was unable to properly do my job. The last thing I wanted was for my mental health to negatively impact a company that I have had the pleasure of helping build for the last year. This was certainly not an easy decision to come to, and I cannot thank Deb enough for the constant support and understanding while I took the time to make this decision.
My time with Kade & Vos has been some of the best of my life. To have a job that I am so passionate about, with the best mentor and friend that I could have asked for in Dr. Deb has been the greatest blessing, and an opportunity that I will cherish forever. I have learned more in the last year than I ever thought possible in a job, and I have seen such amazing professional and personal growth in myself. Choosing to prioritize my mental health is one of the hardest decisions that I have had to make in my life, but something that I know is very important.
I love Kade & Vos so much, and I know that Deborah will continue to be the fearless leader that I had the privilege of getting to spend every day with during my time at K&V. It’s not often that you get to start a business with your best friend and after getting to work by her side, I know there is no one more capable of running K&V than Deb. I am looking forward to the amazing future of a company and CEO that will not quit until everyone has equal access to fashion and has a place they can shop where they feel safe being their most authentic self.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me in my role at Kade & Vos, I cannot put into words how much this community of support and love that we have been able to build means to me.
Forever your loving co-founder,
Ashley Scott Morse
What a beautiful soul. Love you Ashley!

At Kade & Vos, we do not use the term "Plus Size". We feel that calling some sizes "Plus Size" means that these sizes and shapes are somehow different from other sizes.
