Over the past few years I have made many changes to my life: my location, occupation, education and personal values. I am constantly growing in my life and becoming the person I want to be. I have been so fortunate to have help from professors, colleagues, family members and friends along my way. As I became more independent in my own life, I started to worry about all the other women out there who might be facing the same challenges I faced. Maybe they are just starting out their adult-lives or maybe they are ready for a Major Life Change. Regardless of their situation, these women should have someone to go to; someone who has had to face change and choice head-on; someone who can provide them with a helping hand and valuable resources.

Style/Image Coach for mid career women and small business owners who struggle with not knowing their personal style, and not having enough time or energy to figure it out.

The love of performing began for me at a very young age. I always wanted to be an actress or a big Broadway star. However, when I got to NYC, I took a left at Broadway and found myself in children’s theatre. My next audition had me teaching young children and inspried me to go back to school for a Masters in Early Childhood Education. Putting all my skills together, I formed a company doing musical parties for very young children. My company is now a growing team of entertainers that I am training and booking so that I can provide families with fun entertainment that doesn't "talk down" to children or bore the adults! Music connects us all and creates memories that last a lifetime! I am so grateful for this gift!
