    Personal branding, excellent communication skills, image control, and professional behavior create the conduit of interactions that enable individuals to form relationships with the world, often creating the platform for success through first impressions.

    Through international travels, state and national program creation, public and private enterprise coaching, and corporate board advising, Nyrka has developed a winning formula and unique insights, allowing her to match an individual’s inner leadership skills to his or her outer image.



You did a great job connecting to the different generations in our office and you engaged people I thought would be LAST to participate which I think is a huge win! You also made the personal branding and elevator pitch workshops very relatable and were able to engage the audience by sparking conversation among team members. You were definitely one of the highlights of the retreat according to our employees.

When I am not working, I support Top Buttons, a nonprofit, charitable and educational organization focused on building confidence and career opportunities for young women through fashion and self-empowerment.  At Top Buttons, I participated in the Wearing Confidence Program by teaching Like Skills Training Courses such as “Resume Writing & Job Interview Preparation” and styling young women from at risk teen organizations. In addition, I contribute my time at the store by getting garments ready to sell. What a great way to continue developing the skills for success in others! It has been a lifelong passion!
