Jeannie was also named the backstage fashion and digital correspondent for the highly anticipated NBC show “Fashion Star” and after recently returning from Brazil where she hosted the 2011 Miss Universe pageant, she was named as the new on-camera fashion expert tasked with contestant makeovers on NBC’s hit franchise “Biggest Loser”. Jeannie is also a style expert for Perez Hilton’s hit fashion website, which brings in over 9 million unique visitors per month, and appears as a frequent fashion correspondent on the “Today Show” and “E!

Jeannie has made it her mission to inspire, educate, and empower women, receiving rave reviews as a speaker on the main stage at Maria Shriver’s The Women’s Conference. This passion for empowerment has given her the title of “Wearapist”. The title comes from her psychology of style she has calls “Wearapy” which is her practice that style and wardrobe can have an empowering and healing effect on a woman’s confidence and mood.
Rather than focusing on trends or labels, Jeannie teaches how color and textures in personal wardrobe choices can dramatically enhance a woman’s self-confidence and mood, while transforming the environment of situations around her.
