What do you do? My job is very much aligned with [Seattle-based women’s eyewear company Rivet & Sway‘s] mission: I help women feel beautiful in their glasses.

How did you get that job? I wasn’t looking for a job as a personal stylist, but I couldn’t have been more excited when given the opportunity. I’ve always had a passion for glasses as well as working for a company that was made for women and run by women.

What’s a typical day like? Every day I get to chat with women and help them find the perfect pair of glasses for their individual style. Whether it’s over the phone, email, in person, or over Skype, I make sure that we find just the right pair.

What surprises people about your job? I find that most people are amazed at how finding the perfect shape and color transform your entire look. You can easily take your look from day to night simply by switching up your glasses and putting on lipstick.

What’s the best part of the job? I get to tell women they look beautiful every day. I don’ t think women hear that enough.
