Our Products & Services

The idea behind our product creation process is simple: Every product or service offering should be a means for engaging, educating, and empowering our community. Whether it’s leadership advice from a business executive, career lessons from an experienced coach, job offerings from a recruiter, fashion tips from a stylist, or an interview with a successful entrepreneur, each solution that we deliver should Engage, Educate, & Empower our community, wherever they are in their career (and in life).

Why SharpHeels?

What SharpHeels means to us, and why it was chosen as our business name: 1. Our founder is 5'2" and dons a pair of power pumps when she needs an extra boost of confidence (and height). 2. SharpHeels is a wordplay for an intelligent woman or women (sharp=intelligent, heels=woman/women). 3. SharpHeels is a positive spin on a negative term (sharp elbows) often given to an assertive woman, e.g our founder. 4. The domain was available and there were no trademark conflicts 😉

No Heels Required

Everyone is welcome to enjoy our products and attend our events, regardless of their footwear preferences. Heels are not required.

Our Team

Ashley Poulin - Founder & President

Corporate marketing leader turned entrepreneur. I left my corporate career to launch SharpHeels with the ideal of building a unique brand and new culture supporting the modern professional. Every day is a roller coaster with new challenges to overcome and accomplishments to achieve. I remind myself each morning to: be passionate, take measured risks, and enjoy what you do ... and then I guzzle an extra large coffee and devour a breakfast taco (or two). Thank you for being part of the SharpHeels community!
