After having my child, then going back to work two years later, I realized that something was missing from my life. Don't get me wrong, my family is everything to me, but I realized that I needed to do something just for ME. From an early age, I remember looking at teachers in grade school knowing that they could do so much more with their style and appearance. When I was 4, I knew I didn't want the pointy shoes, I wanted the round toed shoes. I drove my Mother crazy shopping the malls finding the exact shoe. It was clear.
We all love our fashion right? I am no exception. But I wanted to know how to apply fashion in my daily life. I wanted to be able to feel the best I could through what I was wearing, what colours I felt good in, and how they made me feel. So after many years, I decided to go back to school to become an Image Consultant. It was a good fit. Upon receiving my credentials, I was approached by several friends who wanted to know more about what Image Consulting was, and if I could assess their style and/or colours. I got the bug. I built the business, and here I am today. It feels really good to be doing something that I enjoy, and also something that allows me to share my expertise with others.
