What keeps you
busy now: I am working to connect individuals with their personal and
professional goals by pursuing higher education.
Top networking tip: One way to get the most out of networking is to step out of your comfort zone and make genuine attempts to connect with people on a personal level. The rest usually takes care of itself. Making genuine connections through honest conversation is how the best networks get built.
How did you get into your current line of work: After working for 10 years in corporate America, I decided it was time to make a change. I pursued my passion for helping people connect with their personal and professional goals. Working at Claremont Graduate University has provided me the opportunity to do all of that and more.
