In 2007, House of Colour changed my life. After a life of constant worry over what to wear and how I was being perceived, both at work and socially, I found confidence and joy in my closet. My career path took off and it was all thanks to my Personal Color and Style Consults with House of Colour.
I was working back home in the UK for one of the world’s largest healthcare companies and planning my move to a big new role at the global headquarters in Chicago. A few of my colleagues had “had their colors done” and raved about how it had helped them to shop and dress with confidence. I was a little nervous about the big move and needed a little boost, so I thought “why not”? I was pretty skeptical beforehand, but after my color consult, I was a complete convert! I could instantly see how different colors impacted me. I went immediately back for my style class and after that, shopping and putting outfits together became so much easier. I no longer buy things that don’t work for me and I’m able to instantly tell if something is right or not.
I spent a further 12 years leading global marketing teams, never once worrying about what to wear for a big meeting, presentation, or social event. My role as a senior leader and 24-year career in a Fortune 500 company spanned all sizes of organization, from the global h.q. with 11,000 employees on site, to a newly acquired Silicon Valley start-up with a small handful of people. I've confidently collaborated with all levels, up to and including the C-Suite and Board of Directors. These experiences have helped me understand and coach my clients to make the best first and lasting impressions, whatever they do now, whatever they aspire to achieve and however early or late in their career.
What I learned helped me outside of work, too. I got a casual wardrobe that worked for me and my chronic vacation overpacking was cured! Now that I live my best life by the ocean in America's Finest City, my casual closet is where I spend most of my time and I'm having such fun with it.
I am thrilled to own a House of Colour business and take my clients through the same journey that I experienced. I was first to launch House of Colour to San Diego in mid-2019 and have had the utmost joy since then working with male and female clients, from high school age to retirees. My clients have anything from the most casual beach lifestyle to senior leadership roles in corporations. My own experience helps me work with anyone, from any walk of life. I can show you that you don't need to be into fashion or be creative to easily use the House of Colour process and tools. I show you how to make your closet work for you and make you feel GREAT and we have a lot of fun along the way!
