Working with Susana is a life changer. While having your closet organized feels great, the deeper work that she does is incredibly effective. She works to figure out who you are and what you need and how to create the best you. The personal transformation that can occur can really leverage your personal and professional life. Brilliant.
- Holly Ziegel Ruxin, CEO & Founder Montcalm TCR and Montcalm Capital

Susana is a joy to work with and immensely talented. S
he's able to take who you are, what image you want to project in your business and translate that into a personal style unique to you. I've learned so much from her about beauty, and the power of style - she used a combination of what I already owned and new pieces to create a style that fits my personality and where I see my business moving forward in the years to come. If you want to take the guess work out of dressing and feel more confident in those power meetings, Susana is the one. She's smart, full of life and her positive outlook on life is contagious.
- Madelyn Glist, TV Producer and Writer

"Since starting my own business, having powerful outfits that I know look good on me is key and Susana takes the guesswork out of it. I worked with Susana through the process of going through and cleaning out my closet, shopping with her for clothes, and then finally putting together outfits with the clothes I purchased. Since going through this whole process, I have received more compliments on my outfits than ever before and I have gained the confidence I am walking into a meeting looking professional and put together. I truly can look at the pictures she created of outfits and get dressed in less time than before. Susana is gifted in knowing exactly what works for you and her taste is perfection! 
- Michelle Zink, CEO & Founder of Intentional Solutions Corp.

Susana transformed my wardrobe and my attitude about shopping. The change for me is enjoying walking into my closet rather than dreading it, pushing myself to accessorize and combine things in unexpected ways, and knowing what shapes and colors to look for and what to skip. And the compliments on my new wardrobe are an added bonus! Happy to speak to anyone who is considering working with Susana. I can't say enough good things about working with her.

Susana is powerful in her ability to understand your work world, and your corporate or industry "dress code" and can address the need for women to have an executive presence while maintaining an individualized style. She has an incredible sense of pairing; I get many compliments regularly! 
- Hillary Beaz, Director of Clinical Operations at Myokardia

"Susana brings a stylish but objective eye to her work. She helped me curate my closet to identify the most flattering, versatile, and timeless pieces, and then she skillfully guided me in updating my wardrobe and pulling the existing and new pieces together for a variety of outfits. She provides excellent customer service, taking that extra step to find clothing and accessories that make sense for the customer. You will be delighted with the results if you work with Susana! 
- Stephanie Casenza, Director of Development LSS of Northern California

"Susana has an outstanding taste and an elegant style that is vibrant and creative, yet sophisticated and refined. 
She is able to calibrate her approach to a wide range of fashion styles and strikes the perfect balance of working within the parameters of your comfort zone while also coaching you to explore new ideas. Susana is skilled at finding the best pieces and great deals within larger department stores, smaller discount stores, and consignments. She gives great counsel on when to invest in classic pieces and can also find beautiful, affordable pieces that speak to the latest trends. 
- Asheley Linnebach, Partner PLBsearch 

"Susana helped purge my closet of all the things I never wore (and I still have no idea why I kept them). She figured out my taste, and my lifestyle and went shopping for me with her amazing sense of style. She recognized all the staples missing in my wardrobe! Then we shopped; I loved all the things she selected, and we figured out sizes, etc.! I love all of it! pushed me to try new styles, accessories, etc. that have completed my outfits. I can’t rave enough! Susana has wonderful taste, personality, and a sense of style; I could never have done this myself with my busy career. 
- Andi Thompson, VP Media Director at MediaCentric

My experience with Susana (Dare to Wow) was easy, amazing, and fun from beginning to end closet audit, shopping, and the ensemble of outfits!
I recommend Susana if you are looking for a fresh and professional reboot or want to treat yourself to something special.
- Renee Shiota, Senior Director, Patient Support Services at Acceleron Pharma

Working with Susana has been life-changing, more than I ever would have anticipated. After an initial closet review and outfit creation, I was amazed at what she could do with the items I already had! She mixed items that I loved but never would have thought to put together. Susana is a style curator and a coach. After the initial session, I focused on her advice and it changed not only the way I was dressing but also my awareness of how what I wear affects how I feel about myself. Additional sessions and personal shopping has introduced me to new brands in my price range and added to my Wow! The style reboot was a gift of clarity for me, both in my work and as a mother to a young daughter. My work is fun, but it can be demanding, very outward-focused, and engaging with a wide variety of people. I have renewed confidence and, in the time since I started working with Susana, I’ve had additional opportunities at work that I felt empowered to take on fully—it has been fantastic. It helps to have Susana’s photo albums of ready-to-go outfits for all occasions. And as my daughter looks to me as her role model, I want her to learn Susana’s mantra of empowerment—this is not just about the clothes and the style, but the attitude with which you approach life. I learned that from Susana".-
