Architect

Holistic Health, Home & Beauty Advisor

 
 

PHILOSOPHY

I believe that unshakable confidence and essential joy reside within each of us.  We are empowered to radiate those truths when we stand strong in our freedom of personal expression. When we find the people, places, and things that fire up that standout feeling.

The mission of A STAND OUT is to empower every human to honor their unique beauty and boldly express their individual style.

BACKGROUND

I worked through my twenties as an architect in Manhattan.

For a host of reasons, I reached a breaking point when I knew I had to break out and forge a new path.

I became a certified holistic health advisor, and while maintaining my design and artistic practice, I created this site:

A STAND OUT

This is a universe devoted to celebrating every woman’s particular brilliance: from skin-deep to soul-deep.  Welcome. Here you’ll find:

INSPIRATION - Recommendations of the world’s finest things, imho.

SKINCARE - Luxurious, botanical & deeply regenerative.

ONE ON ONE - Consultations that guide clients to more optimally and optimistically experience their body and space. For new client inquiry, please email be@astandout.com.
