Meet The Corset Styling Team
Jodi Mayers – Owner & Lead Stylist
Jodi’s belief is that Corset Styling should be a place where women of all ages and body types can find something unique and flattering. While her calling didn’t find her until later in life, Jodi’s professional experience in sales, marketing, and consulting perfectly prepared her for this role. A thorough understanding of the importance of first impressions and the theory of dressing appropriately for your audience drives the core of her philosophy. “You don’t have to spend a year’s salary on a wardrobe that can fill an entire room. Instead, it’s about making educated and strategic decisions on pieces that are versatile and project your individuality.” Jodi is the wardrobe stylist for KSTP’s Twin Cities Live, as well as the go-to fashion advisor KARE11 News at 4 and the Saturday Morning Show. She has been tapped regularly to speak on working wardrobe strategies for businesses including General Mills, the Minnesota Wild, and Super Valu. Jodi has enjoyed the privilege of emceeing fashion events for organizations such as Angel Foundation, League of Catholic Women, and Hope Chest for Breast Cancer Foundation. Jodi is a graduate of the College of Saint Benedict and currently sits on their Board. In her free time, Jodi sings, dabbles in writing children’s books, and enjoys Sundays with her husband Paul and dog-daughter Bou. Jodi also sells a custom and ready-to-wear men’s clothing line called J. Hilburn. This additional service allows her to offer the same convenience and style for men.

Amy Copeland – Team Lead & Assistant Buyer
Amy has been a member of the Corset family for years. As a valuable contributor to both vintage and new Corset, she brings tremendous worth to the business and our clients. Amy is the continuity to ensure what made Corset great still exists today, and any changes being made only further enhance the products and services we offer. Amy’s role as a super-mom gives her a unique perspective on what women with busy lives and families expect from a shopping experience. Her training and experience in social work helps her relate to a wide range of people, which is evidenced when customers ask for her by name. Amy is pleased that her work as a fashion advisor to friends and family has blossomed into a career that allows her to help women look and feel their best. Her leadership, fashion sense, and pleasant demeanor made her the obvious choice to serve as one of Corset’s stylists. Amy is a graduate of the College of Saint Benedict. Outside of Corset, Amy is a committee member for her daughter’s school fundraising events, likes to read, and enjoys the outdoors with her friends & family.
Ann Guntzel – Stylist
Ann joined the Corset Styling team in June 2014 after being a loyal customer for years. Considered the “go to” woman for fashion advice and shopping knowledge for her friends and family, this role allows Ann to put all of that great practice to use. Ann is no stranger to hard work, having grown up on a farm in Iowa with four brothers and four sisters. Ann, the middle child, is used to negotiating for what she wants! Her background is primarily in sales, training and management, but she also has extensive experience in administration. Having lived the “dress for success” lifestyle her entire career, Ann knows the importance of being comfortable in one’s clothes yet looking the part at work, or for that special occasion. A resident of the Twin Cities for decades, she’s been exposed to every area of the region while calling on clients, and appreciates the richness and variety of all the people and neighborhoods she’s visited. Ann enjoys traveling, ethnic food, weekends at the cabin, reading, baking and being a grandmother to six. As a member of the Corset Styling team, she is excited to bring her experiences to our clientele, build relationships, and in her own words, “learn from the wealth of knowledge already in place at Corset.”
Lee Ann Jorgenson – Marketing Manager & Stylist
Lee Ann joined the Corset Styling team in November 2014. She brings many years of corporate retail experience having worked with Walgreens, Target and SUPERVALU. She has always loved fashion, and gets to blend the best of both worlds with her dual role at Corset Styling. “It is so rewarding to help women look and feel their best. Many women hate to shop or are frustrated by evolving dress codes at work. We offer styling services that fit our customer’s unique lifestyles and personalities–and make it fun in the process!” Lee Ann is a graduate of Marquette University in Milwaukee and holds an M.B.A from the University of St. Thomas. Lee Ann is a Certified Image Consultant through the Studio for Image Professionals. She loves reading, traveling, spending time with her dog and intends to golf in all 50 states with her husband.
