So I Get It!!


You've been to 3,000 career workshops and 3 million inspirational talks to learn about how to work your way up the ladder, network and get noticed in a positive way.  Yet and still, you're checking out this site to see if perhaps I just might be the one with the magic bullet to get you from where you are, to where you want to be.


Since founding the Image & Etiquette Institute nearly a decade ago, I've helped hundreds of people just like you get unstuck and make the progress they needed to create the type of momentum that grows and multiples results.  When I was younger, I grew up in the school of hard knocks as neither of my parents were wealthy socialites, yet both 

understood the value of creating and maintaining good impressions.


Therefore, I've had to work very hard to get ahead and navigate success on a new

level, and on new terms - MINE!  Since making the decision to define my very own

version of success, I've had the fortune of being selected for numerous

professional development opportunities, key leadership roles, and was even

named a "40 Under 40" in my industry.  Needless to say, I've come a long way

and would absolutely love to help you, your team, and/or conference attendees

do the same.
