For as long as I can remember, I have been a student of style and fashion, paying close attention to what I am drawn to while also learning what specific looks and styles work best for my body. It wasn’t long after, when my image consulting moved beyond myself to those around me. I quickly became the person who others naturally came to for fashion tips, assistance with strategic shopping or a second opinion for closet analysis. I began styling my friends and family as a hobby and quickly noticed the significant impact it was having, not only on their clothing, but also on them as people. With a move back home to Portland in 2015 came the question of my next career move and personal styling seemed the obvious and most fulfilling fit.
Prior to launching my own business, I spent 8 ½ years working for a prominent management consulting firm in the Bay Area, during which time I consistently recognized the importance of representing yourself well with how you dress. Working for an organization focused on helping teams get to know each other on a deeper level, I was able to further my natural ability to read people and situations well, which has been priceless with ensuring my clients feel safe, heard, understood and, most importantly, are having fun.
I am a voracious reader of lifestyle and fashion blogs of varying demographics and am always looking to expand my knowledge and inspiration and continue taking personal fashion risks. Through this process I have not only developed a strong sense of my own personal style but have gained a great amount of wisdom, tips and tricks and simple, applicable tools that can make building a wardrobe an exciting and truly rewarding experience for anyone.
I love the look in a woman’s eyes when she knows she looks good. She walks with confidence and carries herself with a self-assured presence that puts others at ease and allows her to be fully present in the moment. It is much more than the clothes we wear, but I've found that to be a great starting place.
The approach I take with my clients, both men and women, is highly individualized and customized, taking into account their lifestyle, body type, personality, current style approach and budget. Whether you need new styling inspiration with your current wardrobe, a complete closet overhaul or something in-between, we'll work together to find the best fit for you.
I can't wait for the opportunity to work with you!
