Who writes this stuff?

Hello, I'm Vanessa Zambo and the first thing I will tell you is I never went to school for fashion. I've just had to dress for work everyday over the last 22 years and I actually LOVE doing just that. Somehow, in between being a wife, a mother of two boys, an SVP at Terracon, and a writer for SIMPLYkc magazine, I've managed to create this blog, which parallels my fashion journey in all of these endeavors and my efforts to be a better leader. Come along with me each week to experience how you can build a strong brand image in your workplace. We'll dive deep into my closet and my self proclaimed "rules" when getting dressed. 

With STOMP I'm bringing together 20 years leading marketing teams and initiatives in national firms mixed with years of working in the fashion industry. Women are rewriting the rules of the ever changing workplace while balancing a number of things which may include: a vibrant single life, marriage, kids, and business travel. I hope that you connect with STOMP as I strive to make it easier for women to look and feel their best every day.
