About Me

I have forged connections between people for as long as I can remember. I’m the person who strikes up a conversation in an airport and leaves with a resume. I once introduced a hiring manager and job seeker on a flight which progressed to an interview, and I’ve put people together I’ve met through various channels. My conversations are usually sprinkled with suggestions for resources or connections.

I designed my business with the purpose of helping business and individual clients #landandbrand in new markets, while managing strategic or cultural shifts, and defining a career path in transition.

A few ways I’ve helped clients #landandbrand:

➡ Business: Seamless experiences for talent acquisition, candidate experience, onboarding, global mobility, process design, improvement, employee relations and retention, HR for startup and consultation for new ventures in the US.
Content creation and editing for international business owners.

➡ International students: Logistics pre-and post-arrival, destination services, cross-cultural training, personal branding, resumes, LinkedIn profiles, grant writing, dissertation edits, and coaching through my International Student Resources community and 1:1.

➡ Individuals: Defining a career path, career transition, personal branding, resume writing, editing, LinkedIn profiles, coaching for interview preparation, salary negotiation.

???? International candidates: Personal branding and coaching for the US market

Mentorship and networking for students, young entrepreneurs, and women returning to the workforce.
