As an Image Consultant, I believe that true passion comes from the heart. When we are living as our true selves everything comes together. How we show up — whether it be to a job interview, a networking event, a family function or a corporate presentation — we speak without words based upon our presence and how we’re dressed.
My focus is on helping people make a good first – and lasting — impression by increasing their professional presence through the ABC’s of image: appearance, behaviour and communication.
A bit of history
My passion for fashion began when I was 12 years old, working in my family’s retail clothing business. Through my years in the business I developed a love for dressing people. I would go on buying trips with my Dad and pick out certain pieces of clothing for specific clients because I knew it would suit them extremely well.
Life brings us through many channels as we discover who we are and what we’re meant to do with our lives. After leaving the family business, I changed gears and became a financial advisor. I gathered many skills during my 13 years in the financial services industry including presenting to large groups, sales skills, customer service, business ownership, corporate structure, finance, insurance, relationship building, networking, compassion, personal develop training and the list goes on and on.
With the encouragement and support of my husband and business partner John I switched gears again, going back to my early passion and beginning my career as an Image Consultant. I completed my training through International Image Institute and am currently working on my Certified Image Consultant designation through AICI.
When not working on my business, I love spending time with my 3 grown daughters and the beautiful men they’ve attracted into their lives. Family, friends, traveling, outdoors, hiking, reading and an overall love of people are my greatest pleasures in life.
How I Help
For many professionals, there is a gap in how they show up. Whether going for a job interview, interacting with co-workers and management, sitting in front of clients, networking or attending an event, there is an element of personal presence that is missing. Many people do not realize that a first impression is made in 7 seconds (or less). That means that before a word is spoken, an impression has already been made. I want to make sure this impression is a good – and lasting – one.
I help clients take control of the image they present, putting them on the path to achievement.
