Jodi’s belief is that style is nothing unless it’s personal and that women and men of all ages and body types should be able to find something unique, flattering and that makes them feel confident.
As the former owner of Corset Styling & Fashion Boutique in Edina, Jodi made the leap from traditional brick and mortar retail to a fashion concierge business. Seeing the changing retail environment, she pivoted her business to a new pay-as-you-go model in which clients are strategically aligned with partnering malls and shops to offer a curated selection of clothing and accessories or home décor items that match their need. Her new business model offers high value and uber-flexibility to accommodate shifting consumer behaviors and enables her to serve as a liaison to other partnering businesses. As such, Jodi is your mobile, nimble, just-in-time and only when you need her fashion concierge.
Jodi is the go-to fashion advisor on KSTP’s Twin Cities Live, as well as KARE11 News at 4 and the Saturday Morning Show. She has been tapped regularly to speak on working wardrobe strategies for businesses including General Mills, Wal-Mart Corporation, the Minnesota Wild, and Super Valu. She has also been featured in publications such as MSP magazine, Minnesota Monthly, Edina Magazine, and St. Louis Park Magazine. Jodi has enjoyed the privilege of emceeing fashion events for organizations such as Style Edina, Angel Foundation, League of Catholic Women, and Hope Chest for Breast Cancer Foundation.
Prior to launching her fashion career, Jodi held professional roles in sales, marketing, and consulting at corporations such as Accenture, Best Buy, Wells Fargo, Seabury and Cargill.
Jodi holds Bachelor Degrees from the College of Saint Benedict in Communications and Sociology as well as a Master’s Degree from the University of Minnesota in Human Resource Development.
