An Article by David Fickling states, “it takes only one-tenth (1/10) of a second for people to make judgement on attractiveness, likeability, competence or even if a person is aggressive, after looking at their faces for 100 MILLISECONDS. (Capital expression are mine). He further states, “we decide very quickly whether a person possesses the traits that we feel are important, without even exchanging one word with them.” Talk about ‘in the blink of an eye’!
• As a Certified Image Consultant and Style Solutionist, my expertise is working with clients to create the desired lifestyle impressions, professional, travel and leisure, as well as special occasion. In addition to your visual brand or lifestyle, I also provide coaching and guidance on your Non-Verbal impression.

I do an assessment of my client’s image concerns, discuss suggested improvements, to create a plan for positive transformation from the inside and out. This is done through an intensive interview process to learn about you, your lifestyle, your personal style (what fashion style you are drawn to), creating a workable plan to help you achieve your Image and Style goals.

It’s time to build your team and I am your solution!
"Show me a successful individual and I’ll show you someone who had real positive influences in his or her life. I don’t care what you do for a living—if you do it well I’m sure there was someone cheering you on or showing the way. A mentor.” — Denzel Washington
