    Joshua was an invaluable investment. He took care of everything for me--finding several different looks and sizes so that I didn't have to leave my house on tax-free weekend to go to the mall. When the budget got tight, he helped me make choices based on need and helped me put together a buying calendar so I didn't feel bad about saying "not right now" to a particularly lovable dress. I had no buyer's remorse then or since, and feel confident and professional in my new work clothes. I get compliments on my outfits all the time at work, which is an added bonus.

About this pro

Personal stylists are everywhere. Every department store and wanna-be boutique has their own spin. So when people learn that I'm an image coach, they ask, "Like a personal stylist?" No. A stylist's job is to make you look good, so they plan a look that may be fantastic. The problem is it may not be you. It's a hostile takeover of your body -- they're the artists and you're just the canvas for their latest fabric fetish. I'm sure you've seen your fair share of ridiculous runway looks. Someone gets paid a lot of money to style them and often they still looks awful to most of us. If I styled you like that, you'd think I stole your money, but the truth is, ugly as it may be, the clothes are a style and they would be on you. Then the job is finished, right? So what does an image coach do? Take a look at the woman in our profile gallery. Her name is Kathy, a client of mine, and she had medulloblastoma (brain cancer). This is not a runway look, but she isn't on the catwalk. Instead, she believed that the key to getting well was choosing to feel well about herself. Part of that was how she looked going to radiation and going to chemo. So I gave her a look that helped her be comfortable. Yes, she loved the aesthetics of her clothes, but I also focused on stretchy fabrics with a soft touch, so she wasn't restricted in her movements or stuffy in the chemo chair for hours on end. Her clothes were machine washable because she wasn't allowed to drive to the dry cleaners. Her clothes make her feel like a woman even when all her hair was shaved. Each of these was immensely important to her, and I'm happy to say that she's in full remission now with no trace of cancer left. The same attention to detail is important with every client; if you aren't comfortable (visually or physically) in the look we choose, you aren't you anymore. There is one you, no more no less, and walking alongside to enhance what makes you unique is my goal. A coach takes into account your lifestyle, your goals and your audience. I don't dress any two clients the same way because no two people are the same. My corporate trainers need to look approachable and knowledgeable, while my clients in bespoke customer service need to look sophisticated and polished. Image coaching simply helps you figure out who you are and then refines that visual idea into the purest quality. So skip the fancy apps and stylists if their first question is anything but "Who are you?" I'm an image coach because I can show people their intrinsic value, and I help them project their worth. I give people presence and a platform from which they can be heard.
