About Dr. Joyce
As the Founder of The ImageMaker, Inc.® Communication Group in 1985, many subsidiaries have been formed, such as the Fashion, Modeling & Social Site Divisions. Hard work paid off as I obtained the honor of becoming a celebrated and distinguished image professional, who has worked in the Impression Field for over twenty years, specializing in Fashion, Style, and Design.
It was exciting to have earned the highest achievement, AICI CIM (Certified Image Master) by AICI, The Premier Image Association (Association of Image Consultants, International) in 1999 & to have conquered the field of entire image to include behavior, verbal communication, and nonverbal communication Working hard, I became the very first Certified Image Master (AICI CIM in AICI), working from home via Skype as an online consultant and mentor.
Having written 10 books earning Best Seller: From Head to Soul for Women and From Head to Soul for Men (both in their 4th edition) about Fashion & Style, I have received tremendous feedback from readers to add to my existing knowledge in the image field.
At the age of 38. I went to Oakland University, a division of Michigan State & earned a BA in Communication’s. Soon after, made the decision to get a Master’s in Business Management and at 52, decided to earn the ultimate degree of PhD. In Human Services/Psychology.
Through continuing education and working as a fashion model for over 10 years, prior to academic education, I loved doing print work, television commercials, teaching (head teacher at many pageants and modeling schools) & working with the famous Patricia Stevens Agency in Troy, Michigan, where I taught fashion for the up and coming models for 10 years. Somehow, I also was the fashion guru for the local newspapers with my own column and had my own Television Program for three years with Booth Communication called “The ImageMaker, Presents.” Then, on a lark, entered The Modeling Association of America (MAAI) and won…. in three categories: Fashion, Television (Actress) and came in 1st in their Makeup Competition out of 1500 applicants. Imagine my surprise at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York, sitting at a table, knowing no one and being called up to the stage 3 times to win these awards! She, then, I continued AICI where I won the Award of Excellence for Education and The Immie Award (ImageMakers Merit of Industry Excellence.
In 2007, an opportunity expanded my vast expertise to include the social sites (a new form of communication) that is growing every year. My social site status became at the top 1% of users worldwide–with over 1.1Million Followers on Twitter alone.
After 10 years on Inspirational Talk Radio Network, I, now produce The 12 Minute Network and serve as a Regular on Naturally Savvy, iHeart Radio TuneIn, Stitcher & iTunes.
The ImageMaker, Inc ® Communication Group offers the most up-to-date courses in Image Management, approved by AICI. I pride myself on updating all the course information every six months and researching the latest in Appearance. My approach to my practice is creating a Strategy for clients for Image (Impression) Management and then help them with marketing (the one thing other programs leave out!)
I work alongside of each client to clarify what they are seeking in their careers so they can focus on becoming the success they deserve to achieve. While the outside image (appearance, fashion & style) are very important, it is also most important to dress for your figure and physique. To this end, I developed the first and only Figure Magic® and Physique Power® Style Portfolio System. This enables clients to take their client shopping and give them a complete portfolio to work with on the right styles for their figure or physique type.
You have my word that I will market your services after any course or service to my 1.1M followers on Twitter (@drjoyce_knudsen) you will be put on #FF so others will follow you and you will be invited to appear on my radio show (The 12 Minute Inspiration broadcast by The Gab Radio Network.)
My latest book, Refusing to Quit is my new project. At 73, I needed to nominate myself to represent woman 60 and over to tell the world that we are vibrant, knowledgeable, and ready to rule the world. Now, I am developing a calendar of woman this age. Let me know if you want to be featured in 2018.
