"As a former Miss Connecticut and Miss America contestant coached by Charlie Margolis, the interview and communication skills I gained have stood the test of time. I have utilized all the methods and techniques I learned in the many facets of my life. I am grateful to Charlie for successfully raising my confidence level and increasing my interview skills. Thanks to the foundation that I received from my interview and image training, I have been able to speak comfortably in public, interview well, and I have advanced in my career. Interview Image Associates empowers contestants to become the best they can be."

Stacy Perrone-Petta,
Miss Connecticut, 1996
