About the Owner

Anita Heiskell 

I am a Certified Social Graces Etiquette and Image Consultant based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. As a graduate of the Social Skills and Etiquette Moms School of Protocol, I have more than 25 years of experience having initially been a competitor in pageants and competitions. Having competed in The Miss America Organization, I was the first African-American woman to be named Miss Memphis and Miss Memphis State University. Apart from that, I placed as a runner-up to Miss Tennessee. I continue to travel across the country   judging pageants and changing lives in the process.

My passion for etiquette, protocol, and dressing for success has no bounds. I love teaching children, teens, and adults some of the basic rules of etiquette and to see their character develop during this process. My motto "Etiquette is NOT Extinct" is my daily focus.

My husband, Attorney Michael Heiskell, and I live in Fort Worth, Texas with our chocolate lab named Nahla.
