My Story

Yes, that's me! Channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw even before she was a twinkle in Candace Bushnell's eye. To say I've always loved fashion and style would be an understatement. I've been obsessed! As far back as I can remember, it has played such an important role in my life. I used it to stand out from the crowd. I used it to be part of the crowd. And I also used it to hide the pain and insecurity I often felt inside. I had bright-colored clothes that I knew would make me feel better when I was having a hard day and sparkly shoes that made me feel like I could conquer the world. Even as a young child I knew the power of style, and I used it to change my life.

So, it's really no surprise that life took me into a career in fashion and style, although I took many detours along the way including a 16-year corporate career in non-profit business management and communications. But I eventually found my way to the right path and what I really feel is my purpose, and in 2010 I became a Certified Image Consultant and Stylist and started my own image strategy business to help others unleash the power of their personal style. I've worked with people from all walks of life around the world and I feel truly blessed that I get to help others each and every day.

But my journey didn't end when I started my image strategy business, in fact, it really only just began! I found a new purpose: to help others achieve their dream of being a personal stylist. I combined my knowledge and passion for personal styling, with my extensive business skills, my degree in psychology, and my own personal experience of growing a successful style business, to help people become skilled personal stylists and grow successful businesses for themselves. All of this takes place in my online training school, The Style Academy International which I launched in 2017.

And no, you guessed it! My journey still didn't end there! I completed a graduate certificate in female entrepreneurship from Cornell University in 2019, became an NLP coach to not only help my image strategy clients but also my students, and I published my first book, The Little Black Book of Style Secrets.

So, as you can see, I'm obsessed with style! Style has played such a powerful role in my life and I'm blessed to be able to share that with others.

Harness the power of your style

Did you know that your personal style and image can hold you back in many areas of your life, your career, your finances, and even your relationships? For over a decade I've worked with people from all walks of life to help them to use the power of style to change their lives. From business professionals looking to climb the corporate ladder, entrepreneurs looking to build a successful business, media professionals trying to advance their careers, law firms looking for a favorable outcome in court, and even people in the dating world searching for their life partner. Whatever your situation, my image strategy™ services can help you achieve your goals.

Get Ready To...


Gain clarity on how your style is holding you back. Delve into the mind-clothing connection and how a shift in what you wear can trigger a shift in your success mindset.


Clear your closet and clear your mind! Let go of anything that no longer works for you and create a new foundation for your personal style.


Create a wardrobe that aligns with your goals. Save time and money with a strategic approach to your style that removes the guesswork and optimizes your wardrobe.


Use the power of style every day to grow your confidence, make the right impression, create new opportunities, and thrive in your life.

How it works...

In private weekly meetings, you'll be guided by me through a personalized program to help you align your personal style and image with your life goals. We'll start by peeling back the layers of your current style, discover what's working and what's not, and take an honest look at why it's holding you back.

The next step is to find the right image that will work for you and the goals you're trying to achieve. We'll use personal styling techniques and color analysis to create a foundation for your wardrobe that works in harmony with your physical characteristics.

We'll then take it deeper with my exclusive style and color association testing™ to delve into your mind-clothing connection and see which styles and colors will have the most impact on your mindset and give you the confidence to achieve your goals.

Once we've taken the steps above all that's left to do is build you a strategic wardrobe that takes all the guesswork out of what to wear each day, and gives you outfit blueprints that align perfectly with your body and your goals.
