Born in 1972 to unsuspecting parents, going to a black-tie event. My mom had me while wearing a full face of makeup (false eyelashes included) and a gorgeous silk and velvet gown; no wonder why I came out of the womb loving fashion.
Featured on The Today Show, Kelly and Ryan, stylist guest for JCrew, magazines and other awesome accomplishments in the 20+ yrs in the fashion industry, not to mention the hundreds of super nice women I met on the way.
I'm a mother of two and wife of one, a condensed milk dessert addict, a style aficionado, a disaster relief volunteer, and a dog lover!
A few years back, one day, I woke up, my kids were grown, I’ve sold my successful business, my body changed and my identity of what I was known for, was gone.
My life + body changed and without my permission!
I’ve been in the fashion industry for over 20 years. The clothes I used to wear and feel confident in weren't working anymore for my needs and body.
I was so frustrated, confused and not going to lie, depressed.
the weight wasn't coming off as I expected it to
I was bored out of my mind not having my business
My kids no longer needed me as much
I didn't feel like myself
No clue on what to do next as a career
I noticed that the midlife struggle was real, maybe the scenario/transition was different, (divorce, laid off, illness, empty-nester...) but the frustration and lack of confidence were the same.
I realized that my own beliefs and thoughts were causing me to feel that way, once I started my journey to get my confidence back it changed everything for me!
Eventually, this journey also resulted in the creation of this career.
A few bumps in the road drove me forward.
I decided to dive deeper and got certifications in Personal Image Consulting, and Professional Image Consulting from Milan and NYC, to teach others how to get more confident from the inside out!
I've been working for the past few years in perfecting this method with real women, living real lives, with real bodies.
My style strategies are not “just about fashion”, the goal is to help you as an individual, find your message - the path that makes you feel good about yourself and what you see in the mirror.
It's about well-being + self-confidence independently of size and age.
Style and clothes are my genius zone, and it's just
the vehicle I use to get you there.
