Oriana Turley & Medicine Mountain Scrubs
This week we've got another great story of creativity and hustle happening right here in Western Montana. Oriana Turley is a registered nurse who grew sick and tired of working in crummy clothing that didn’t fit, didn’t last and wasn’t sourced from an ethical supply chain. So she decided to do something about it. Medicine Mountain Scrub Company is bringing to market a line of scrubs designed to maximize comfort and performance in a product you can feel good about.
Oriana’s journey to entrepreneurship is one we can all learn a lot from. Medicine Mountain is in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign and from the sounds of it, folks are lining up to get their hands on these scrubs.
