How I can help you

Starting Monday October 3 and for the remainder of 2022 I will only be conducting face to face mentoring seasons from 11- 4. All will be at the New York Public Library 455 Fifth Avenue at 40th Street, room 517 (212.592.7033). Everyone MUST follow any Covid protocols set by the Library to meet with me and I would prefer that all my mentees be fully vaccinated.

Please note: because of the number of clients I see on a regular basis and the new clients waiting to see me in the New York City geographic area I am no longer able to accept SCORE clients out of this local area. This is because my personal business schedule both with incubator1 and FIT precludes me from doing so.

With more than 40 years experience in the fashion industry, I bring to all mentoring sessions current and important branding and marketing strategies across many platforms. My experience covers the apparel industry in many forms, both retail and wholesale, and includes branding, repositioning a brand, marketing and merchandising and conceptualizing your brand.....getting down to its DNA. I am currently a professor of business and marketing at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City as well as the co-owner of a marketing/branding/business building consulting company, incubator1. My clients include both retailers and wholesalers in apparel. I do have some home decor and food service experience.
