As a retainer based executive search consultant I coached senior-level executives in realistic career advancement and personal presentation. I formed a separate practice called, “Guerrilla Job Search,” a no-nonsense practicum of strategizing a job search using the techniques that top search firms use to find candidates. I show people how to be one's own headhunter by identifying viable organizations and titles, networking strategically and possibly creating and utilizing distinct resumes for different opportunities and potential paths. Trained in psychology (including family systems), counseling and family law in New York, I've worked with couples in custody and visitation battles within and outside of the court systems.
I've also held group workshops for those in transition, using improvisational theater games and techniques to mobilize people thinking on their feet, be flexible in times of uncertainty and hone presentation skills they didn't know they had.
I was a professional actress (member of AEA, SAG, AFTRA), singer and writer in New York City for many years, appearing in films, television and in off-Broadway and Regional Theaters I trained at Point Park College at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, the New York University School of Drama and Lee Strasberg Institute along with private teachers at Ensemble Studio Theater and Actors Theater (to name a few). I was a member of some notable theater companies and improvisational groups. I coached actors for auditions and scene work. I also was a stand-up comic and appeared at the major NYC comedy clubs. I've directed and produced shows and taught both acting privately, and through schools, camps and the YMCA. I also used acting techniques and improvisation games to work with executives in transition.
