Why Style Coach?
My passion for style for the everyday woman along with my natural open approach to encourage and guide women in their season of life with their clothing is what led me to Style Coaching. I’ve professionally Style Coached for over 11 years. My mission is to energize, focus, coach, and inspire the EVERYDAY woman to be confident in how to dress their body type. I guide the EVERYDAY woman in learning about what style works best for them in their season of life and connect with who they are today. I’m driven by teaching women to appreciate the pleasure of a great outfit, how to put it together, and wear it with confidence.
I was a little girl in a dressing room with my beautiful Mom. My mom, like all women, was in a season of life where she was fluctuating with her weight. We went shopping for corporate office outfits, she found some items, we went into the dressing room, and I sat down on the little bench. As my Mom proceeded to try on outfits I could see that her demeanor was changing to frustration and she yelled out, “Ugh! None of these clothes work, I’m so fat and I don’t look good in anything.” I looked up at her and I said, “Mama, you’re not fat, you are medium-medium and very pretty. Here, put this dress on, it’s pretty.” She smiled at me and hugged me and laughed and wiped her tears.
