Jennifer Tyler Washington has combined a wealth of professional experience, knowledge and expertise in founding I Am Polished, LLC, which provides business and social etiquette consulting and customer care workshops. Being able to present a polished persona at any table means knowing how to be confident and comfortable at business meals and meetings, social gatherings, networking events, dinner settings, and customer care opportunities.
Etiquette is simply exhibiting common courtesies in our everyday interactions, which helps build relationships, and Jennifer is truly dedicated to helping people create better relationships and achieving their dreams.
Throughout a rewarding career that began in Corporate America as a Human Resources professional, Jennifer Tyler Washington has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience on how business infrastructure works, how departments need to work together to help companies succeed, and the intrinsic value of business ethics, professionalism, and relationship building.
Utilizing her corporate business experience, Jennifer founded, built and operated a successful catering business for over 12 years. She understood that the professional skills homed in Corporate America were invaluable but realized that the value of business and social etiquette, excellent customer care, and treating people with respect were perhaps the most important criteria for success.
In the process of receiving a certification in Etiquette from The Emily Post Institute, she was impressed by the fine orchestration of dining etiquette and cherished the opportunity to share with others what she learned about etiquette – it was more than just dining, it was a way of life.
Taking her education and etiquette expertise to a next level, she earned her Hospitality Management degree and began to teach etiquette classes at her former company, educational institutions, local YMCAs, churches, and private clients. From there, she founded I Am Polished, and has expanded her client roster to help athletes, entertainers, educational institutions and companies grow their brand and their business presenting themselves as polished professionals and influencers … at any table.
Chief Etiquette Officer
"I thought the content (on Social Etiquette), challenging as it was in a relatively short presentation, was communicated well. It had good flow to it and made sense. You also had fun with it, didn't take yourselves or our players too seriously, which made it comfortable."
Director of Player Development
"I want to thank I Am Polished for the superb etiquette presentation you provided to our youth. The knowledge and usable tools our youth gained will be used throughout their lifetime. As the Executive Director of the YMCA I am so proud to see our youth use what they’ve learned! "

“As a Women forward networking group we try to bring informative and engaging speakers in to share with our audience. Jennifer Tyler-Washington and Tonja Webb from I Am Polished were the epitome of polished professionals. They shared ways for everyone to improve the impression they give to others. They were warm and welcoming and gave everyone some new tools to boost their confidence and put forward their polished self. A consultation with I Am Polished would benefit individuals, work teams and large groups alike.”

"I Am Polished helped guide me to learn the important aspects of proper etiquette. People undervalue the importance of being well polished with their etiquette and it is great that a company like I Am Polished offers that kind of expertise. In my participation with the company, the best part of the learning experience is the hands on presentation of the material. The techniques make you feel like you're doing the correct things, also have more confidence in yourself in a formal environment."

"Today’s younger generations are underrepresented when it comes to etiquette, however I Am Polished provides an array of experience and knowledge. As a young female in college, I now feel as if I am prepared for stepping into the real world in a way that I will be taken seriously and respected... This specifically gave me confidence for when I am put into a position in which I have to be formal and represent myself in a confident and proper manner. This has been particularly helpful since I have been going on interviews for internships."
