innerSTATE was founded by Emily Petroni in the fall of 2014.
Emily was inspired by the style on campus at Boston College as well as her love for yoga (she received her professional yoga training in November 2009 from Kripalu in Western Massachusetts).
She decided to combine campus style and yoga into university-inspired t-shirts conveying positive messages for women. She is currently working towards her MBA in Corporate Finance at BC and works as a financial analyst at an engineering company. Emily lives in Boston with her Bichon Frise-Poodle mix, Frankie.
