What's your business, and who are your customers?
In business, impressions matter. You have about 8 seconds for someone to visually size you up. As a professional, you want to make sure your lasting impression is one that will attract people to you, wanting to work with you, hire/promote you or give you an opportunity for growth. It is important for you to make your mark in a way that fits what your goals are.
Imagine stepping easily into the best version of yourself. Imagine being able to grab the attention of your audience when you show up in a virtual meeting or in person using that 8-second rule. Imagine being able to show your value in a poised and confident way. And imagine being authentic to yourself while you engage with colleagues and other business professionals.

Tell us about yourself
I'm a stylist, mentor, educator, speaker, and wardrobe wizard based on Boston’s North Shore. I work with my clients individually to empower them to find their personal signature style because what you wear has an impact on not just how you feel but how you move through the world. I am also the host of the podcast - the Wardrobe Muse - where I interview other great North Shore entrepreneurs who share my passion and have worked with me on a number of local projects, including several workshop series with Adorning the Body Positive.
A fashion industry veteran who for 15 years worked for the upscale women’s clothing brand Eileen Fisher, known for sustainability and simplicity along with great style, I'm here to refresh your closet and empower you to be your most authentic self.
We started our journey in 2016 and love our client transformations. We find this work motivating in so many ways. This is a spirit-led business, bringing our clients beyond a transaction to a whole body and soul experience.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Staying in business through the first Pandemic in 100 years.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Finding time to do all the things, even the ones not in my ZONE of genius.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Spend the time and money on branding and marketing strategy after you run a full proof of concept and work a regular job. Networking in person is still alive and will utilize your hyper-local network.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I love working with women to identify their authentic selves through wardrobe - to craft and maintain simple wardrobes that reflect who they truly are and that work for their lifestyles. Long-term relationship building, honesty, and referrals are the foundation of my unique business!
