Career Counselor

            Your Career is my Mission

 

Job hunting or making a career change can be overwhelming, especially if you’re not sure where your skills fit into the market. I can help you define and pursue a path for a career you love with my personalized career counseling and guidance. My unique skills and exploration tactics help identify and highlight transferable skills, along with my background as a recruiter, make me the perfect career counselor to help you find and land a new position that’s right for you. 

I am a former recruitment professional and have worked as a recruitment coordinator and recruiter within the legal, technology, healthcare, staffing, and hospitality industries. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Masters of Education, in Educational Counseling from the University of Southern California (USC).  I volunteered as a career counselor for USC’s Student Veteran Association.  I served as a career counselor at the Veteran Resource Center at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).  I have been a career counselor at California State University, Maritime Academy, Texas A&M University, College Station, and University of Houston, Sugarland.

My background as a career counselor and recruitment professional make me uniquely qualified to help you find your dream job. Over the course of my career, I have developed a proprietary process through which I guide my clients to discover transferable skills and then narrow down industries and verticals that utilize those skills.

I have found it incredibly rewarding to volunteer at both the USC and UCLA Veteran Resource Centers. Helping veterans transition from the military into the civilian workforce has been an honor.  Helping veterans to transfer their military skill set into a civilian context is incredibly rewarding.  Whether you’re a veteran looking for your place, or simply seeking a new career path, I’m here to help.
