I am a Career Coach and Personal Branding Strategist working with a multitude of populations ranging from students and alumni; to professional organizations and corporations; to women in transition. Helping clients build their personal brands to become the stand out candidate or professional in their chosen field is what I do best. I provide a wide range of services for clients including: resume and LinkedIn profile development; social media training; interview preparation and job search techniques.
I have developed a niche in personal branding and frequently present on the topic to corporations, professional organizations and non-profits. My presentations include tips on developing a personal mission statement; doing your own personal public relations and utilizing social media for branding. I also speak frequently at corporations and non-profits including: Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, Faith Popcorn’s BrainReserve, and UJA and work in conjunction with clients to lead Career Development Groups at institutions to provide professional development and branding support for key employees. One of my specialties is helping women transition back to the workplace after a career break which I do through Mind Your Own Business Moms www.myobmoms.com, the company I co-founded with Barri Waltcher.
A frequent speaker on college campuses, I run workshops and webinars for students and alumni at universities such as New York University, Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, The Ohio State University and more. Popular presentation topics include: “Personal Branding for Job Search” and “Redefining your Professional Identity after Raising a Family”.
In addition, I have worked in the career management offices at NYU-SCPS and the NYU Wasserman center, and am currently an adjunct instructor of Career Management at New York University-SCPS and teach classes geared toward women returning to the workplace after a career break.
Prior to my becoming a career coach, I co-wrote the best-selling New York City parent’s resource guide City Baby. The book is in its fourth edition (2010) and has also been published in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Chicago and DC. Always an advocate for mom, I spoke frequently to mothers groups on parenting-related topics and was frequently quoted in the media on New York City family life.
