I hold a M.Ed. In Early Childhood Education, a career path that led me to work as a full time nanny and house manager for families. Having run many households with children, including my own, I am more than aware of the great effort put in day in and day out by those doing this demanding work. A little customized help from a knowledgeable source can go a long way in easing the job and making life better for everyone!
For the past three years I have worked as a beauty and style consultant, helping women to look and feel their best from face to toe! (I’m not all that great with hair, but I can recommend some people who are amazing and lead you in the right direction!) My specialization has become busy moms in transition, those either going back to work or becoming full time stay at home moms, and each and every time of transition in between.
As a military wife I move around quite a bit, and up until now have worked by word of mouth. I decided this year to “take it on the road” as it were and come up with a way to offer my services to those all over via easy to follow, and most importantly, customized meal plans, organization ideas, and beauty and styling.

Meal Planning ($5 a day’s worth of meals, or $28 for a week)
Eating healthy, home cooked meals made with real food isn’t out of your reach. All too often we try to change our lives around a one size fits all meal plan or meal planning guide with great intentions only to go back to take out and boxed foods. Rather than fit your life around someone else’s, let me customize a meal plan of healthy foods you’ll actually use and like because it will be based on your preferences. I take into account your schedule, time, diet, taste, food allergies, portions, likes and dislikes, and any other special considerations and compile easy to use recipes with meal prep ideas to help you cut down on cooking time. We’ll work together to come up with a meal planning guide that works for you and your family.
You only have on average 10 seconds to make a first impression. Within four minutes of meeting someone they’ve decided, based on your appearance and their interactions with you, who you are. Whether it’s a business meeting or an afternoon with the PTA, your personal presentation matters. How we appear to others has a strong factor in affecting our future friendships, relationships, and business opportunities. Are you presenting the best version of you to the outside world?
To be your best, you have to feel your best, or in other words feel healthy, beautiful and confident. That’s where I come in. Gorgeous and on-trend looks that let your inner beauty and unique style shine through come from customized beauty and style. There is no such thing as one size fits all styling and beauty. Not every woman needs a pencil skirt and a black blazer, and not every woman looks best with a nude lip. Let me show you how you can look amazing while using what you already have and do it while keeping to your budget.
I offer “Face to Toe” styling, from makeup and skin care to personal shopping and a wardrobe makeover with the following services:

Wardrobe Makeover ($250) Either in person or via Skype you’ll have my one on one styling services for up to six hours. We will go through your closet with a fine tooth comb, removing items that aren’t flattering or no longer fit your current style. I’ll then come up with outfits complete with accessories from your existing wardrobe. Finally, within three days of us getting together I’ll create an extensive list with recommended items to add based on your specific preferences. If we’re meeting face to face, I will take away the old clothing for you and bring it to your donation center of choice. If you want them to go to a consignment shop that’s all you!
