Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself 

A: I am originally from Milwaukee, WI and moved to Chicago 9 years ago. After working in retail for 7 years prior and going to school for Fashion Merchandise Management and Business, I moved here to start my business, KS Style Consulting right away. We work with men and women of all shapes and sizes doing closet clean outs, personal shopping, color assessments, outfit pairing/look books, and speaking engagements.

Q: What do you love most about your job? 

A: That I get to do what I love every single day. The most rewarding part of my job is being able to help men and women feel confident and change their daily lives just by showing them how to dress and style their bodies.

Q: Take us through a day in the life!

A: Every day is very different. I work just about every day (yes, even weekends!) Typically I start my day by working out in the morning, taking my Yorkie, Wilbur, for a walk and then I’m out to meet with clients for closet clean outs, shopping, or look-book appointments. I work in the city and the Chicagoland suburbs, so I am in the car A LOT! By night I might still be working with clients until late or attending events around the city and then working on my blog and social media.

Q: What's your favorite way to stay active?

A: My favorite active exercise would be running! I run each day outside and have since I was probably 14 years old. It’s a great way to de-stress, get fit, and think about things! Some of my best ideas come when I am out for a run :) 

Q: What do you love most about YOUR #FitCityFamily (aka the health and wellness community in CHI that you interact with!)

A: Everyone is so supportive and there are always new and fun ways to work out to keep staying fit fun and interesting!
