What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Bachelor's Degree in Communication
Trained at AICI (Association of Image Consultants International) Certified Mackenzie Image Consulting
8 years of on-the-job experience.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The misconception is that an 'Image Consultant' is only for CEOs. We have worked with everyone from entry level applicants and public school teachers to C-level executives.
Because our process is as much about stewardship as it is fashion, our discerning customers quickly find they save money in the long run when they work with us.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Above all, find someone that you trust. You will be working very closely with them and putting your image in their hands. As the saying goes, your clothes are the image you present to the world--there is only a small bit of you sticking out at the neck and cuffs.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I hold a bachelor's degree in Communications and trained under an AICI certified image consultant. I have years of retail experience and my personal library is overflowing with volumes on fashion design, image management, communication theory and more--all culminating in expertise that I happily bring to my customers.
