My Story

It started with a Royal Wedding.

29 July 1981 

It was 4 a.m. when my Anglophile mother woke me up to view the fairy tale wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. We sat there, just my mother and her very young daughter, in awe watching the elegance of the royal event. The festivities were thousands of miles away from our backwoods Alabama town but I felt regal watching it (it helped that my mother made scones and tea for us to eat and drink while we watched the nuptials). I was amazed at it all and I just knew I would have a career in etiquette and manners. 


Fast forward 30 years

After 30 years of learning everything I could on my own (I read a lot of etiquette books -- hey, there wasn't Google or YouTube at the time), I invested in courses through the Protocol School of Washington (I'm shown here with Pamela Eyring of PSOW) and began to put my skills to work. I taught basic life skills to children, worked in a government protocol office, and taught business etiquette classes to busy professionals. 

Do's and don't's

I do think manners matter. 
I don't think civility is a lost art. 
I do think everyone can learn new things daily. 
I don't think chivalry is dead.  
I do believe etiquette is about respecting others. 
I do want to help you be the best you can be.
