Education and Career Background
I completed a BA in Corporate Communications at Elon University in North Carolina before serving a full-time mission in the Czech Republic. When I returned, I reevaluated my interests, values, and goals and decided to pursue a MS in Mental Health Counseling at the Johns Hopkins University. I have worked in several different divisions at JHU including the School of Advanced International Studies, the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, and the Carey Business School. My job titles have ranged from Admissions Assistant, Registration Coordinator, to Career Coach. All of my jobs have come through networking…it’s all about who you know to get your foot in the door.
I currently work full-time as a Career Coach at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School and love working with students and alumni to help them progress in their professional development. My expertise includes coaching in self-exploration, branding, resume and cover letter creation, networking, LinkedIn, interview preparation, salary negotiation, and career management. I meet with students both in person and online for individualized coaching, co-lead a professional development course, and guide small coaching groups.
When I’m not coaching or counseling, I can be found teaching Zumba at a local gym, playing “Elsa” at kids’ birthday parties, spending time with family, or taking advantage of lots of great events in Washington, DC.
I have had several mentors through work and church. My current job allows me to be a mentor to many, and I have found that it is by building relationships of trust with people that matters most. Look for someone you respect and can trust and then talk to them about how you feel; they can be of help to you. Let me know if I can help!
