Hello Gorgeous Creatures!

After almost 10 years of working hard in the plus size modeling industry and being one of the ONLY size 20 plus size models in the world, I finally decided to share everything I know and more, on how YOU can become a successful Plus Size Model!! Created by a Plus Size Model for the aspiring Plus Size Model.

I have worked with Forever21 Plus, Torrid, StitchFix, Xehar, Tunnel Vision and SLINK Jeans.

Besides sharing with you what I have already learned from time and being signed to multiple agencies across the country, I can share with you all the things Agencies, photographers, and your favorite brands are looking for to hire YOU!

Sharing Knowledge

Over the past ten years, the plus size modeling industry has changed immensely and is growing rapidly every day into an over 20 Billion dollar business — and I’ve witnessed it all! From the days before the internet to the now social media driven industry — how can you keep up? Where do you start? Who do you trust? AND GOOGLE CAN’T TELL YOU THE ANSWERS!

BAM ! ! ! The ultimate course for aspiring plus size models was born!

I created this course because I get the question daily from so many people — HOW DO I BECOME A PLUS SIZE MODEL???? From women AND men all over the world. This course is to let everyone know the truth about becoming a plus size model and what it takes to really shine and BOOK.THAT.SHOOT, baby!

My very first class starts Monday, July 16.

The course will run for an entire week, and take place in closed private group on Facebook with up to 15 other people.

How does it work?

This course takes place on Facebook, and you’ll be in a class of approximately 15 other people. You’ll have access to the videos via facebook for as long as facebook is around! Wahoo

I’ll hold 5 coaching calls at 7pm PST or as I call it, “California time” lol. These calls will be HIGHLY interactive and tailored to your specific needs. I encourage you to ask questions and share your experiences!

If you can’t make it every evening, don’t worry!!! The courses will be up for you to watch later and you can ask questions during the duration of the course if you’ve missed something! #EverybodyWins
