Hi, I’m glad to see you here!

Here’s a belief I carry with me every day:

…A woman’s destiny is to become the incredible person she’s meant to be and live the extraordinary life she deserves…

Today, more than ever, there are advantages to a woman achieving her own image identity, by discovering exactly who she is, both inside and out.

This embodies the Self she presents to the outside world and her inner Spirit which activates her personal power.

That being said, a woman who acknowledges her own personal power will accentuate the qualities that make her special and unique and use them as an ASSET to become the extraordinary woman she’s meant to be.

That being said, a woman who acknowledges her personal power will develop a provocative, compelling, passionate, courageous, dynamic, extraordinary and highly regarded Persona.


In my BOOK, entitled You Are the One You’re Looking For: Relationship Tools, Reinvention Strategies and Becoming Your Best You!, I explore the reasons many of us move vaguely through life seeking fulfillment and significance from outside and others. And why we often have the tendency to ignore our strengths, values and life purpose.

If you’re like me, you become tempted to listen to that ‘back-chatter’.

You know, that little voice in your head that says, “What do you think you’re doing?” “You’re not qualified for that position.” “You don’t have the money to start your own business.” “You’re too old, too fat, too broke…yada yada yada…

Consequently, your personal fulfillment seems out of reach because you can’t seem to overcome the negative self-perceptions and self-imposed limitations that keep you from having all you want from life.


Most women don’t realize they have an edge – a uniqueness they bring to the world.

Therefore, I asked myself, how could I leverage my 20+ years of professional expertise in the Advertising, Fashion, Beauty Marketing and Media industries, to motivate and inspire women to reconnect with the value she brings to her life and her relationship with herself and others?

I do my best to impart insights and strategies of Self-Empowerment, Personal Style, Personal Branding and Reinvention that I know for sure will allow a woman to use her personal power to create the life she wants.

    • Also, you’ll discern how to choose and cultivate your own personal brand/style that reflects your unique qualities and how to package your brand with a strong visual identity.

There are moments in life that demand that we show up.

These moments come to remind us that we must expand our view of who we are and what we deserve from life.

My latest BOOK: DRESS YOUR SHAPE…AND NOT YOUR SIZE! (The Complete Guide to Understanding your Unique Shape & Achieving the Ultimate in Personal Style and Fashioning your Body into its Absolute Best!) This book will help you find your own fashion voice – that part of you that strives to enjoy the experience of creating your best self.

Quiet as it’s kept, none of us were ever intended to be ordinary.

I am reminded of a quote I cherish from Marianne Williamson:

“…We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world…”.
