Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. ~Norman Vincent Peale
I’m a very outgoing, energetic, & ambitious individual who always strives to live life to the fullest. I truly believe we are meant to do the things we enjoy now, as well as make a positive impact on those we encounter, in both our professional and personal lives. I believe if you want to make your dreams a reality, you need to take a leap into the unknown instead of settling for mediocrity, for something comfortable, stable, and safe. YOU, and only you, are cause in the matter of your life.
Obtaining my undergraduate degree in Psychology, my initial goal was to pursue a career in social work or counseling. I spent 3 years working case management for adults with disabilities for an agency on Long Island. My course shifted when I had an opportunity to return to my alma mater to work in Student Activities, an enjoyable and rewarding 6 year experience. I implemented several programs aimed at mentoring and developing leadership for our students, as well as planned a wide variety of campus events.
When my position was impacted by restructuring, I chose instead to pursue a long-time goal of relocating. I spent 2 years working for an international resort in Florida and the Caribbean. In 2013 I returned to NYC, where I have worked for a major tourist attraction ever since. Both of these ventures served as a priceless experience to get to interact with and learn from guests from all different cultures and backgrounds.
I also believe in making an impact on my community. I was a member of the New Castle Jaycees (Junior Chamber) 2007-2010, and was elected for several board positions including serving as Chapter President for the 2010 year. In addition I had the pleasure of serving as Events Chair for the University of Delaware New Castle County Alumni Club from January 2009-July 2010, and currently am Vice-President for the New York City Alumni Club.
Personal growth has long been something I strive for, and constantly seek opportunities to develop further. I am a graduate of the Landmark Forum (have also completed the Advanced Course and several seminars), a believer in the Law of Attraction and “The Secret,” and The Four Agreements. I follow inspirational leaders such as John Maxwell, Deepak Chopra, Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins and Jonathan Sprinkles, to name a few. I eagerly share their motivational teachings to those around me who could also use a little inspiration.
Other experience in hospitality and events include 6 years as a dancer and emcee in Washington DC, Baltimore MD and Philadelphia PA for bar/bat mitzvahs, student functions and corporate events. For 2 years I organized and hosted local events in Delaware. I have over 10 years experience as a brand ambassador for company and product promotions, including at trade shows and conventions.
I always am eager to connect with ambitious, like-minded people and expand my network! I am getting back to my true calling, which is to help develop and serve others, to truly make an impact.
