I will happily praise your accomplishments but, be warned, I also provide tough love and constructive feedback.
I will share the career tips I’ve picked up along the way and keep my ear to the ground for new opportunities that might suit you.

I have enjoyed a high-profile media career across all aspects of the industry for the past 25 years. I have worked in newspapers, television, magazines, have tutored in media at University and am now applying my knowledge and skills to corporate brands and companies.

Down to earth and outgoing person who has experience in education and also business. I have worked in high school/college athletics for 8 years and business for over 9 years. Looking to help someone early in their career or looking to make a transition.
My career in television, health journalism, and publishing started when I decided I no longer wanted to sit at a desk all day. Instead, I crafted a personal brand as a “herb nerd” and set about using my qualifications in a new way: to communicate to a larger audience the benefits of nutrition, herbal medicine, and preventative health interventions.
As a mentor, I can assist in developing the skills necessary for a career in media. We will look at how you first develop a strong personal brand, how you can use social media to increase awareness, and how to then transition into mainstream media. I’ll also assist with your written and verbal communication skills as they relate to the industry, and — perhaps most importantly — coach mentees on how to attract commercial deals and turn their personal brand into a profitable career.
