I thought I did, but I don’t.  Thankfully, I met Bernadett (no ‘e’ as I call her).  As soon as I met her, I was instantly at ease.

Jen Pressley, Creative Director Who’s Funky but Business Appropriate.

“Bernadett is more than an image consultant — she was able to take my outlook on life and myself from ok to awesome in one short session. Her posing lessons are also great for everyone, in every aspect of life. Even though it seems silly, my drivers license picture went from being horrible to wow — it’s amazing how something so simple can be such a boost to your self-esteem.…
