“A lot of image professionals concentrate on helping clients only with their appearance. But, image is so much more than that. It’s everything that says who you are—how you look, how you act, what you say and how you say it.
When I coach an individual, I focus on enhancing who they already are, not changing them into someone they aren’t. I take the time to get to know them, their values and beliefs. Then we work together to develop an image that reflects their authenticity in body and spirit.
With my SPP coaching program, I help individuals Strategize, Position and Present themselves with clarity and confidence in every business situation from speaking up in meetings and presenting to senior management to networking and business social events.
I believe that your image is one of your most powerful non-verbal communication tools. It’s important to use it effectively to reinforce your strengths and contribute to your career success.”
