On November 9th, I was asked to speak at the Effective Communication Seminar Hosted by CRE Finance Council
in New York City. Effective communication is translated to verbal and non verbal forms of speak. In my opinion, before entering any room, make sure you’re filled with a dose of confidence and self awareness and you’ll be able to dive into any topic that’s of importance to you.…
I’m now getting caught up from the last quarter of the year and still getting messages from people who weren’t able to attend my latest talk on body image and confidence but saw my Instagram post
about the talk I gave at a school in Long Island, New York on the topic of body image and confidence. They go hand in hand.…
My soul really needed this live chat with LifeStyle Editor, Jamie Feldman from Huffington Post (video here–> Huffington Post

I was honored to have been asked by author and celebrity stylist, Susan Moses
to moderate a panel of distinguished panelists at the United Nations to discuss how the fashion and beauty industries and media can work together to continue the evolution of inclusivity and diversity. As a model for over ten years, I’ve seen the pendulum swing in the fashion industry to include a vast array people to best reflect the diversity in our country.…
I’m fashionably late thanking PLY APPAREL
for having me part of their beautifully orchestrated New York Fashion Week February 2016 show. I wore two pieces that I wish I could have kept but sadly had to give back to the incredibly talented and loving duo Pamela and Lamarr. The show featured me of course but also had models of all shapes wearing styles that are current and will be relevant in your wardrobe for years to come.…
I was invited to speak to a class studying Business of Fashion Styling at the Fashion Institute of Technology
to share my business and career advice to students who were stepping into careers in fashion. I was fortunate to attend FIT for my image consulting certificate and have since recommended it to so many aspiring fashionable business minded people. Here are a few tips I shared with the class:

It’s been a week since one talented designer, named Eden Miller, and six plus size models walked down the runway and into the history books at New York Mercedes Benz Fashion week.

One of the first things I tell my clients when we talk about their style is: When someone meets you for the first time it takes them 7 seconds to judge you and 10 more meetings for them to change their opinion of you. Why not get it right the first few seconds? Image is a powerful tool. As a professional model and image consultant I know this to be true. …
I have random thoughts all day and night. I have my cell in hand taking notes most of the time.
I have many loves but what you’ll find in my blog is my love for anything that begins with the letter “F.” FOOD
FASHION PHILANTHROPY (sounds like “F”)
I also love: Fun, Family, Friends, Fast blow outs, Franklin Delano Roosevelt quotes, the act of Fairness and much more.…
