“Audrey is a qualified, professional resource providing style development information and guidance for our MBA students. Audrey’s ability to quickly connect with students, giving each one specific, quality feedback made her a welcome extension to our program.”

Naomi Sanchez, Ed.D.
Assistant Dean – MBA Career Management

Conveying confidence and presence are so important for our MBA students as they interview for internships and full time positions. Audrey goes beyond helping them understand the impact of their appearance. She gives our students the skills to create the impression they want, whether they are in a formal or casual environment. I’m continually amazed at the difference she creates for our MBAs in just one or two conversations. Students love working with her. She’s extraordinary.

Leslie Meagley, MBA (Foster)
Senior Associate Director – Professional Development, On-Boarding, Coaching – MBA Career Management

“Audrey provided very helpful information. Her humor and lightness made what could be a ‘significant’ conversation (for those of us with image issues) more light and fun. She did not shy away from giving direct and needed feedback, but she gives it with warmth and compassion.”

Stacy Duhon,
Senior Associate Director – MBA Career Management

Student Feedback:

“My experience with Audrey was beyond my expectations. I went in completely clueless about fashion and she was able to get me straightened up right away. Her simple tips that I could implement immediately focused on things like hairstyle, colors to wear and what types of suits to wear were great places to start. Then the strategic advice around figuring out the level of dress within my peer level gave me things to focus on to develop my wardrobe into the future.”

Bryan Young, MBA Student – University of Washington, Foster School of Business

“Audrey is a really talented stylist. She helped me define alternative styles that both suited me and were easy to adopt.”

Parijat Protim Bezbaruah, MBA Student – University of Washington, Foster School of Business

“Audrey is great! She was able to help me with broad fashion topics as well as a few very specific questions I had about fashion in my industry.”
