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. However, I also 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.
Driven by a love of education and an interest in human behavior, I earned my BA in Psychology from SUNY Purchase and an MS, Ed. in Counseling from Fordham University. 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 full-time career as a dancer. I learned that being a dancer required me to see myself as a small business owner selling services of instruction, choreography and traditional or theatrical performances. I 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.
For the past several years, I have found tremendous satisfaction as a multi-careerist balancing life as a dancer and career coach. I started Spotlight Resumes in order to offer targeted job search correspondence and coaching for recent grads through C-suite executives. With 18 years of experience, I have assisted clients in every industry throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. Career coaching and crafting compelling narratives for my clients is the perfect outlet for my creative and practical sides. Let's chat to see how I can help you.
