I have created a shopping experience that allows you to find your new favorite clothes, without worrying about sizes, getting caught up in feelings about your body, or searching stores for exactly what you’re looking for. You get to try on clothes, and decide how you feel about them, with permission to say how you really feel, without judgment.
I believe that clothes can be functional, comfortable, and a tool to build confidence. My mission is to have you leaving our styling session with newfound excitement and confidence to be the fierce person you are!
I’m a nurturing but sassy, 5’2”, suburban mom with lots of tattoos, and a tendency to use colorful language, whose mission is to get you to stop hiding, rediscover yourself, and step out as the confident individual that you are meant to be.
Style is for everyone! I believe that everyone deserves to feel unique- like they are truly one-of-a-kind- because I know you already are.
Just like you grow and change, so does your style. When your style doesn’t evolve, you feel stagnant and stuck, which creates blocks in other areas of your life. Not updating your style to reflect your new sense of self can prevent you from living the life you crave. Let’s showcase your energy and help you shine.
My work is here to offer healing and inner transformation that facilitates the outer transformation.
Styling “rules” based on gender, patriarchal views of fashion, or body size don’t exist in my book. I’m here to help you authentically show up in every space and setting in clothes that you feel AMAZING wearing.
Creating a wardrobe that is exciting and feels good for my clients, to boost their confidence and self-esteem, is why I love what I do!
Seeing the emotional and physical transformation clothes can have for a person is one of the best feelings. I truly love being able to witness the transformation, of someone finally showing up as who they are, instead of hiding behind clothes that no longer resonate with who they are now.
Launched the “Beyond Just Ok” workbook

I left teaching to pursue my dream of personal styling full time; Styled cancer survivors for “Mamas Move Mountains” feature with The American Cancer Society, later to be featured on the cover of Philadelphia Magazine’s Think Pink edition; Styled my first fashion editorial photoshoot.
Struggling with anxiety, panic attacks and depression, my soul felt drawn to create something new in my life, other than teaching. So I went for it and it looked a bit like this:
→ Took a few online courses through FIT
→ Began working with another stylist/mentor
→ Launched my personal styling business
→ Assisted on my first fashion campaign photoshoot
→ Attended a fashion tradeshow in Las Vegas as a buyer
Becoming a mom was the shift in my life where I went from dressing to impress everyone around me, to needing to show up for myself. I began struggling my own identity, self worth and self care.
After thinking being a stay at home mom would be my new norm with the universe having other ideas, I had to go back to work full time as a teacher, even though I wasn’t as invested anymore.
Attended NY Fashion Week, by total chance, and was the first real push to acknowledge my love for fashion but still had no idea if it could transpire to be anything more.
Got married to my husband, Tony and began teaching middle school band and general music in Hamilton, NJ
→ Visited to Europe
→ Met & got engaged to my husband
→ Graduated with a degree in Music Education
→ Performed in pit orchestra 47 times in 7 weeks
As a teenager (when my mom allowed me to go to the mall alone) I began styling friends, with no real intention for it to be anything more
