Meet Jackie Walker Front Page

“A woman’s vision of herself has less to do with how she looks and everything to do with what she thinks.” – Jackie Walker 

Check out this podcast with Women Over 70’s hosts’ Gail & Catherine:

“As soon as the conversation starts with Jackie Walker, you are drawn in. Here is a woman who has spent her entire career in mainstream fashion, first on the retail floor, then in HR. And then she had an AHA. She reinvented herself and became known as the Dr. of Closetology. Author, speaker, consultant. She has written many books, including one for tweens named Expressionista. Jackie works with women, is passionate about women, and took clothing to a higher purpose so you can discover your internal persona and bring your closet into harmony with your life.”

Invite Jackie for a corporate training covering the areas of Personal Branding, Reinvention and Relevancy in 2020 and beyond. Tell her your needs and she will create a personalized training speaking from your point of view. Her books from Simon and Schuster are available for a book signing.

Meet Jackie Walker


Jackie Walker’s career began in the retail industry. She was once the youngest couture clothing buyer in the country and went on to buy for many different departments. While working for Federated Department Stores an interesting job shift gave her the executive position as the Human Resource Director in the same location . In 1988 she left corporate life and started Option Dressing, a unique personal image consulting service. Option Dressing speaks to everyone about the options in their lives for what they do every day and the options in their closets that create inner and outer confidence for these choices.

Fashion had taught her to concentrate on the outside image. Then human resources gave her that “AHA” moment that success and confidence starts within. She set out to teach self-esteem dressing and how closet chaos and echo’s of past comments could be transformed into positive self-image and closet harmony!. At this point “Closetology” was created and Jackie branded as the Dr. of Closetology!

Soon Jackie through her private client’s referrals, was speaking to local groups on the psychology of clothing and why we do what we do with clothing. Next conducting company workshops and training seminars became part of her agenda.

Communicating on a motivational as well as informational level, Jackie quickly gained a reputation for providing powerful insight and inspiration for her audiences and clients. Today she traverses the nation as a well-recognized and respected author, keynote speaker and motivational trainer.

Her bestselling book in the 8th printing with Simon and Schuster “I DON’T HAVE A THING TO WEAR, The Psychology of Your Closet” has been translated and released internationally. Her second book with Simon and Schuster titled “EXPRESSIONISTA, How To Express Your True Self Through (And Despite) Fashion” debuts September 3, 2013.  She has appeared on many national and local television and radio shows as well as a contributor to magazines across the country.
