Describe yourself in a few key words…
Creative, generous, passionate, warm-hearted, upbeat, healthy sense of humour
What brought you to become an Image Consultant?
I started a blog called Not Givin In a few years ago after I felt that I’d ‘let myself go’ and was determined to find my style mojo again. Now I’ve trained with the Image Consultancy to help others do the same.
What do you love most about your job?
Helping people feel confident. I absolutely love identifying a new piece for a client’s wardrobe that they would never choose for themselves but looks amazing. It’s magic when that happens.
Who have you worked with that compliments the work you do?
I’ve worked in PR for over 25 years. One of my favourite clients has been Marks & Spencer. I was part of a team that helped to launch Autograph and Per Una.
What inspires you?
It’s more who; who inspires me? And it’s simple. Other women. I’m just amazed at what my gender brings to the party and when women support women it’s the best. I like to think that being a personal stylist supporting women on a deep level gives them the tools to live their best life.
How would you describe your personal style?
I’m definitely a mood dresser, so one minute you’ll find I’m dressing quite urban in turned up jeans and Chelsea boots and the next a pretty dress and heels. I enjoy playing dress up.
