I hold a professional degree in Business Management with a specialization in HR and Marketing. I am also certified as a
- Image Consultant
- Professional Makeup Artist.
HR taught me a lot about professional life and especially on connecting with people and making strong professional relationships. My journey in various organizations like Progressive Infotech, KM Solutions, Oracle etc. gave me exposure not only in HR, but also in building teams, organizational development, implementing employee-friendly environments, and policies.
As a Counselor, Image Consultant, and Makeup Artist, I am working on different aspects of people’s life. It’s about their Behavior, Body Language, Appropriate Clothes for the right occasion, Physical Appearance, and finally Grooming. It is working on people “Inside–Out”.
In today’s Visual world, Image plays a very important role. The human mind forms a perception within 5-7 seconds of a meeting/interaction. At this point, if you have not been able to project a powerful and impactful image, it will be a struggle forming a great First Impression.
I started the journey of Make over’s, since mid-2015 and have been able to bring a change in people’s life coming from different backgrounds. My Clients include Teachers, Business Women, Housewives, Students, Corporate Individuals. Image Makeovers “Inside–Out”, helps you get an understanding of its impact and also of how one can achieve it.
Most women go through the change in their lifestyle due to changing family circumstances. I too am no exception. During the sabbatical in my career, I also got the opportunity to move out of the country and live in Toronto for a few years. This was another great journey of my life, where I realized that there is more to motherhood than I imagined. It was being a woman who is a superwoman and is sort after by her kids, family, friends, and then her own aspirations and ambitions.
My desire to balance my life with family and my own independence was very high and that began my journey or quest to know what more can I learn to make my life even better. Since my kids were small, I decided to study further, as that required only part of my time. HR experience came very handy as the choices I had to make became easier with the clarity I had about different work and roles. I was fortunate to get exposure in counselling as employee relations and realized that I am best suited for the work. Along with counselling came Image consulting. The image was especially very interesting and intrigued me since it is and upcoming field and the scope of Image Consulting is so vast, that I cannot imagine where it ends.
This is to every human being who feels that they are sorted, once they get that first job, or if people have children. I feel we should stop only when we really want to stop. There is no end to learning or growing till the end. Age or the current status in your life has nothing to do with it. All it requires is that sense of realization and an attitude that “I will not give up”.
In today’s world, First Impressions and Power of your Presence have become so important. Counselling and Image consulting together helps a person to confront the daily challenges of life which they face knowingly or unknowingly based on the perceptions, image, judgment people have formed about them.
This was an answer to me and I applied myself where my passion lies. Today I can proudly say, that I am a mother and a professional, who has carved her own path. I have made a choice of not being part of the rat race but follow my own passion. Passion where I can work what I love and also balance my family life.
