As a strong believer that you should show up at work as your true authentic self, the Solv CEO and founder, dresses the same both in and out of the office.

What I Do: I am the CEO and Founder of Solv, a management consulting and executive coaching firm that helps business leaders achieve their goals of growing both personally and professionally. After spending 20+ years leading and coaching high-performing teams, I realized that my passion is to positively impact the trajectory of other people’s lives and their businesses.”

Style Icons: “Coco Chanel has always been my style inspiration and icon. She was a trailblazer and innovator whose signature colors were black and white, which are the staple colors of my wardrobe. She transformed women’s fashion, making it more functional and comfortable.”

On the Job: “Work does not influence what I wear at all! I am a firm believer that you should show up at work as your true authentic self, not in what you think others expect you to wear, so I wear the same thing to work that I wear when I am not working.”

What Inspires Me: “My mom was a fashion design professor when I was young and sometimes took me with her to fashion shows. Every night she brought home new fabric swatches, and I would stare at the patterns and feel the textures, and she would teach me about the science of the fabric. This early exposure to high fashion and fabric has stuck with me throughout my life and drives my style choices.”

My Style: “Urban classic’. I consider myself an urban dweller, having lived in Madrid, Washington DC, Detroit, Chicago, and currently living in West Village, Dallas. My style has evolved and been influenced by residing in each of those amazing cities.”

Style Essential: “My gold Cartier Love bracelet. It is so incredibly special to me because I bought it as a gift for myself when I achieved a major career milestone.”

Go-To Look: “Skinny pants (usually rag & bone), a camisole, blouse, or sweater, and a blazer. I always throw in a great couture handbag and designer boots or shoes.”

How I Accessorize: “Belts, classic designer boots or shoes, couture handbags, and gold jewelry.”
