M.S. Career Counseling in progress, California State University, Sacramento
B.S. Human Development Psychology, Arizona State University
Hello! I am thrilled to connect with you as a Career Specialist for Ama La Vida. I grew up in Redding, a small town of Northern California where I have many memories of being in
nature. I enjoy hiking, paddleboarding, camping, and nature meditations, all of which help me find a balance between my work and life commitments. In college, my extracurricular experience included leadership positions and internships at non-profits, which gave me an early foundation in seeking a career path that would allow me to help others. I found that a series of “jobs” in social services and trying different positions on, was exactly what I needed to learn about and gain interest in career advising. I am grateful to say I love doing what I do to assist people in their careers!
My background in Career Counseling has allowed me to work with universities including
University of Southern California, UC Davis, and CSU Sacramento, where I worked with
individuals on resumes, interview coaching, job searching, and networking strategies. I
incorporate positive psychology and strength-based approaches into my coaching model
for career development. I believe in career connection for you: connecting your career
choice with your values. By career connection, you can find fulfillment and enjoyment in
the workforce. I have a vision that includes more connectedness for people to their careers and that includes helping you discover the career that is ideal for you!
As a Career Specialist, I enjoy working with individuals who are ready to take action in
pursuing a new career, those who are seeking more fulfillment in their current career or
assisting those in the process of finding work-life balance. I am overjoyed to work with individuals to help them answer the following questions:
What makes you excited? What gives you the freedom to imagine and dream?
What gives your life meaning and purpose?
My expertise includes:
· Resume reviews and creativity
· Interview support and coaching
· Job Search techniques
· LinkedIn profile support
Ultimately, I am excited to get to know you and support you to design a life that includes a fulfilling career, while also providing you with practical tools to assist you in your job search.
