I live in my genius by intuitively dressing people, by seeing and saying what the finer qualities are about a person, and tuning their clothing to match their essence. I am a global style consultant, personal stylist, and brilliance maven. I travel to my client’s closets and work magic to create a full and colorful wardrobe with magnificent clothing. I create a seamless image for my clients in integrity with who they are and what they do in the world. I save them money by choosing the right clothes that will last. Serendipitous moments happen everyday when I’m in my genius and I say the universe is winking at me to continue expressing this way. 😉
What vision do you have for your life and your coaching practice?
My vision is to see people dressed in a way that catapults them into brilliance. Maybe they try new things or achieve long held dreams because they were brave enough to change how they show up. When I come to the end of my life, I hope to look back on all the fun I had, all the projects and business and think, “Wow, I’m so glad that I enjoyed my work fully and touched so many people’s lives”.
What are the top three things you love about coaching?
- Assisting client’s discovery process and the amazing amounts of co-discovery that happen through being a stylist. I get to learn along with my clients.
- That as a coach, I invite people to take responsibility for their own issues and desires. As a former psychology student, coaching feels SO clean!
- How alive I feel after meeting with clients!
Before I started coaching I …
Before I started styling and coaching I was a world champion equestrian, photography student at CalArts, a marketing director, a lover of culture and art, and a somatic psychology graduate. I also had no idea what I wanted to do when I ‘grew up’.
What makes you laugh?
My husband’s jokes, also getting him to laugh at my jokes tickles me.
The legacy I want to leave behind is this:
The legacy I want to leave behind is a world where people feel ecstatic and wonderful for just being themselves with their fullest self expression. I want to create a legacy for people who love themselves and others with unequivocal ease, joy, and expansion.
Who are your top three people you would want to coach and why?
With celebrity culture being in the public eye so much, what these people say and do becomes popular and travels instantly into the mainstream. I think coaching celebrities how to express their brilliance through style, words, and actions could have a far reaching effect. Rachel Zoe would be a top pick, also Kristin Stewart, and Rihanna. These women have influence. They are all powerful and they could benefit from fine tuning that power to another degree. I realize it’s a bit ludicrous to want to style someone like Zoe, the top celebrity stylist who has her own fashion label… and I still want to. I think changing the way people see fashion and style is also important to me. I want to bring more aliveness into the industry, and that’s where I think Zoe could use some assistance. Fashion can be so serious, stiff, overly designed and posed. I want to see fun, colorful, happy, movement… with plenty of history, quality, and chicness still present.
What were the greatest benefits you received from studying at the Hendricks Institute?
First, I learned how to let go of worrying about things that I couldn’t control. Second, a great benefit has been choosing happiness and to pursue what I most want in life with conscious commitment. I’m now happily married and enjoying living life in my genius. I also think seeing Katie and Gay expressing their genius so fully allowed me to ask and ask until I discovered my own.
The movie that inspired me most was_______.Why? The Book?
The movie that inspired me most was Coco Before Chanel. Why? Her story of going from an orphan to a famous fashion designer is inspiring. I loved to learn how she built her empire after working as a seamstress, and how she re-created what was popular by bucking the fashion norms.
The book? Matilda by Roald Dahl. I still have my original copy I read when I was 8. I loved this book’s message about powerfully smart and sensitive children. It really helped me at that age and I still hold it near to my heart.
What brings you the most joy in your day to day life?
Seeing my daughter grow up and enjoying time with her and my husband. I enjoy feeling the ripeness of what’s to come in our lives and the love we have for one another.
