As a little girl, I learned fashion and service in my family's women's specialty store. After graduating University of Pennsylvania with a BA in American Civilization, I dove into the NYC fashion scene rising quickly from Bloomingdales Executive Training Program to leading sales at Lina Lee of Rodeo Drive and Trump Tower to managing FAO Schwarz Fifth Avenue.
In 1987, I founded my New York City corporate gift and event company. For over 20 years, I collaborated with high-profile clients like MTV, Citicorp and Bon Appetit to create unique, artfully branded events and gifts. As a lifestyle expert, OPRAH, TODAY, CNN and over 50 companies and associations have turned to me for advice on style, gifts and etiquette.
While raising my children, I embarked on designing, manufacturing and marketing Tessuta life woven, a unique line of women’s accessories and pillows licensed with Major League Baseball and over 80 colleges.
As an empty nester, I realized my career focus has always been image, style and brand. My passion and profession as a Certified Image Consultant, is leading individuals, corporations and non-profits to explore, define and express their image, style and brand. Whether you are embarking on a new venture or overhauling an existing lifestyle, as my client, you’ll learn the joy and value of feeling confident, comfortable and present in your life, knowing that you are revealing your best self.
