I believe in self value. I believe in a unique point of view. And I strongly subscribe to presenting our authentic selves to the world with confidence.
Sure, we are human. We make mistakes. I certainly remind myself of this every time I speak in front of an audience. After all, it's what connects us. The common bond of vulnerability.
While the thought of being vulnerable may scare you, it's brave and real and it's an absolute must to living free. We must get comfortable in discomfort. It's what ignites the confidence within us. Unbridled self expression comes from identifying and understanding personal brand. It's at the very core. It's our truth.
Branding has forever been embedded in me. For years I worked in the corporate world aligning companies to their customers by means of authentic connection, beginning in 1992. That laid the foundation for what came next — 1:1 branding. The personal brand. People.
And it truly is personal.
With a background in corporate branding, my knowledge translates into real world experience. It's that unique brand of skill, aptitude and intuitiveness that allows me to help clients develop the relationship they've always wanted with their wardrobes.
As a wardrobe stylist, I can attest that it's much more than what our eyes see. Our brand portrays who we are, who we want to be and who people perceive us to be. And it's a fact that before we speak others have already decided whether they like and/or trust us based on our visual appearance.
Whether speaking on style or healthy living in the workplace, it's all about tapping into confidence in order to harness and unleash our individual, inherent truth.
That is powerful.

National Practice Leader, BDO
At BDO we believe in investing in our people beyond just a business knowledge standpoint. We want to support self growth and encourage a wholistic approach to building a meaningful career at BDO.
Inviting Catherine to speak to our men and women about expressing their personal style in the marketplace was the perfect extension of that approach, and fit right in to this quarter's theme of promoting self-confidence. She was engaging and truly understood how to mix personal style with self expression while still maintaining professionalism in the industry. Our team found her to be easy to talk to and left with easy tips to being our best most confident selves!
National League of Junior Cotillions
Thank you for speaking at our two of our National League of Junior Cotillions national convention in Charlotte! It was very much a pleasure having you instruct our directors on the best ways to present themselves for their classes and events. I can't tell you how many directors enjoyed your segment. Looking forward to the next conference held in Charlotte. Thank you again!
PR Manager Neiman Marcus
Catherine spoke at Neiman Marcus in Charlotte to a group of women about InsideOut Living. Her philosophy of how style factors into how you feel, and ultimately how you care for yourself, resonated with the group. People learned how to identify and express their personal style through their clothes and were shown how different items conveyed different things. A great evening of celebrating how we should all embrace what makes us unique and share it with the world.
