I’ve always been a non-conformist. My high school voted me “most unique.” I sang and played guitar in bands throughout my teens, danced on various stages since the age of 5 and pushed the boundaries of personal style with only a handful of fashion regrets. But I’ve also kept one hand in the pragmatism jar the entire time.
I have a genuine love for assessing what is possible with grounded, measured and practical thinking. This is the yin to my yang. Bold in my art and practical in my career. This translates to a unique value for my clients and allows me to switch between the two hats as needed. Raised in a family that valued education, I happily earned my BA in Psychology and MS, Ed. in Counseling. After completing a two-semester externship in the Career Development office at New School University, I was hired full-time. There, at the epicenter of creative thinking, I worked with musicians, actors, artists, writers and emerging leaders in global policy. I enjoyed this work tremendously, but it also planted a seed.
As the seed grew roots, I made the bold decision to pursue a career as a dancer. I studied anatomy, injury prevention and kinesiology, pouring myself into movement. I became a small business owner, selling services of instruction, choreography, traditional or theatrical performances, started a dance company and built a reputation that I am very proud of. Along the way, I became a mentor for budding dance professionals where I continue to offer career guidance and personal branding strategy.
At present, I also work as the senior coach at Careerfolk where I serve clients of all ages and stages. I started Spotlight Resumes in order to offer targeted job search correspondence for recent grads through mid-level professionals. Career coaching and crafting compelling narratives for my clients is the perfect outlet for my practical side.
