Rhoda's Why 

As a child, creating art and being in nature offered solace during the turbulent 60’s. When I became a teen, I was exposed to women leaders in my community who were refined and committed to helping others. This inspired me to seek image consulting to feel and look confident and to empower others with the techniques and information I learned to elevate their professional presence also.

My career path led me to Southern California for the specialized education and unique experiences in the fashion and beauty industries to develop my creativity in color, design and image consulting.

My approach to elevating style integrates art, nature, beauty, fashion, and wellness practices to provide tools for sustainable transformation from the inside out. Botanical skincare, mineral makeup, statement gemstone jewelry, color analysis are the tangible instruments that I have created to give my clients the ability to experience the “art of beauty” for a refined and authentic self expression.

Many of the women I have had the privilege to elevate with these tools have been emotional in how the experience has impacted their life. They have reported it helped them obtain their dream job, increase their revenue, and share their Ted Talk with grace because they felt empowered.

What keeps me passionate about personalizing beauty and style for clients after 40 years is the “look of amazement” when they see themselves in the mirror afterward. It is as if the light from the colors has somehow turned up their inner light and they feel energized by their own beauty.

What could be possible for you and your business if you show up more confident and credible?
