Cora Lee Poole
Founder & Creative Visionary
Cora Lee first dreamt up the concept for Undestructable nearly 15 years ago as she sat in a sewing room while working on her BFA in Apparel Design at the age of 25.
It began as a tiny seed planted in passion for supporting survivors of domestic violence and of sustainability from a post-consumer space.
What began as a tiny seed has grown and matured into what we now know today.
"To say that Undestructable was born solely with the hope of helping survivors or solely around sustainable products would be a gross inaccuracy. One is not exclusive from the other within Undestructable. There are far too many parallels. The concept that all things are disposable in our country spans from hard goods to human beings. This needs to change."
As a survivor and leader, she is always working to help women rediscover their value and define their purpose.

Olivia’s passion in life is to always be learning new things and expanding her horizons in order to help others. She received her graduate degree in Sociology, and Gender Women and Sexuality Studies at the University of Iowa. During her stretch at Iowa, Olivia spent her time volunteering at the Women’s Resources and Advocacy program on campus and facilitating a healthy relationships course at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women.
After undergraduate school, Olivia’s lifelong goal of following her grandfather’s footsteps in joining the Peace Corps took her to South Africa. From 2018-2020 she was an educational volunteer where she taught English and life skills to grades 4-7, developed a library at the school, and implemented a Healthy Lifestyles after school program for the older students. It was here in South Africa where Olivia discovered her desire to specifically focus on women’s rights and gender-based violence (GBV).
Olivia is currently in her second/final year of getting her master’s in International Human Rights with a specialization in Sustainable Development at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. She also presently volunteers her time at the Rose Andom Center as a Fundraising and Development Intern.
When Olivia isn’t focused on combating GBV you can find her hiking in the mountains, traveling the globe, soaking in hot springs or watering all her house plants!
