Louisa Gabriel, CIC, CFS

Personal Stylist/Career Coach

In what seems like a previous lifetime, I spent years working in the USA as a senior level manager for non-profit organizations.  While I really enjoyed my work and thrived on it's many challenges, I made a decision to follow my lifelong passion for fashion and become a Personal Stylist.  After training at The Fashion Stylist Institute in San Francisco as a Certified Image Consultant and fashion Stylist, I took the leap of faith and started my own Personal Styling Business, The Style Clinic.  My work as a Stylist has allowed me to work with people from all walks of life from all over the world, and I can honestly say that I love what I do!

My passion for my what I do is what lead me to want to help others experience the same kind of passion so that's why I decided to create The Style Academy International.  The Academy allows people from all across the globe pursue their dream careers as Personal Stylists and Fashion Stylists through online study.  The Style Academy is only in it's second year, but already we have graduates from at least 10 different countries who are now following their dreams and working in the fashion industry.

In my free time, yes, I do get some despite running two businesses, you'll usually find me hanging out with my furry side-kick, Libby the Labrador, or supporting my favorite hockey team, the Boston Bruins.  Black and gold are not really in my seasonal color palette, but even a Stylist has to make an exception to the rule, but only for their favorite team ;-)

P.S My first book, My Little Black Book of Style Secrets is coming out soon, so watch this space!
