About Elissa.

  • I’ve been starting businesses since I was 5 (I once sold over $700 worth of drinks and snacks at a LEMONADE STAND!)

  • I grew up in South East Asia to American parents (hello Vietnam and the Philippines!)

  • By the age of 30, I had just over $2 million worth of real estate assets under management — and then I got divorced, or as I like to call it — I evolved gracefully out of marriage. :)

  • I started my first wardrobe styling company, Styled by E. in 2013 (10-30% yearly growth).

  • I started the School of Heart-Centered Styling in 2018 because I am a STRONG believer in transformation through personal style.

  • The thing I care MOST about in the world is freedom (human sovereignty). I believe that we GET to choose how we want our life to go.

  • I also care a lot about self-expression. The world wants to see you, I promise. ;)

  • I help my clients create businesses that are in full alignment with their gifts.

“Elissa has totally shifted my perspective of how I see myself, my business, my message, my style and my brand. She’s been a HUGE source of catalytic motivation to change not only my style, but also my approach to making MONEY. She’s real AF!”

Since working with Elissa I have truly stepped into my femininity and sense of style.

What a gift she has provided me! Before working with Elissa, I didn’t trust how to put clothes and accessories together, what colors and styles highlight my features, and wanted to run away from malls as it left me feeling overwhelmed with choices and no direction. If you can relate to my story, or even if you are already a master of style and just looking for some tips, tricks, and inspiration to enhance yourself, there is no doubt you will find transformation with Elissa.

Don’t even hesitate to invest in this for yourself or as a gift for others. You will have a lifetime of good style, self expression, and full out stylish confidence. And not to mention, FUN!

“I connected to my highest self and looked at her!

Elissa created the space to ground the breakthroughs I experienced. And held the space amidst breakdown too!

I gained a greater vision for myself this weekend. It has been all about allowing abundance in. I know what my next level looks like.”

Seriously...what just happened? That was so easy and SO fun and I somehow nowhave a completely upgraded closet full of things I love. 

I don’t know how, but you nailed the look I was going for on your first try.

You’re seriously gifted at this. I already feel like the next-level ME and today was day one!
