Story
Tagline
Recruitment Consultant. Career Author.
Introduction
I am the Founder of The Opportunities Project, a national talent development, recruitment consulting & career coaching agency. I'm also the author of the books Confessions of a Teacher Recruiter: How to Create an Extraordinary Resume and Hook Your Dream Job, and Create Your Own Opportunities: Coach Yourself to Career Success.

I became an entrepreneur to change the national conversations about work, education and success, and serve the individuals who want to live their best professional lives as well as the organizations who hire them as employees or service providers. Through The Opportunities Project's talent development and coaching work, we've helped 1,000+ individuals reach career success through speaking engagements, workshops, and one-on-one and group coaching since opening in 2010. Through our recruitment consulting, we have helped clients hire 900+ new team members.

Before starting my company and becoming a certified coach, I spent a decade successfully working in recruitment and education, including serving as the Director of Teacher Recruitment for the New York City Department of Education, one of the largest employers in the United States. I supervised the recruitment, selection and hiring of 5,000+ teachers annually and led my team to a second place victory in the annual Best Employer Brand contest sponsored by ERE, an international recruitment association. 

My career advice regularly appears in national media outlets, including Mashable and CBS MoneyWatch, and I've been a featured speaker at many conferences, including the Brazen Careerist Social Recruiting Conference, CollegeRecruiter.com FedCollege Conference, #140edu, and TEDx. I also serve as a career expert for Rising Tide, a new initiative that brings guidance to help you achieve your best in life as part of the Tide brand's commitment to service. 

I love considering all sorts of opportunities- don't hesitate to contact me to discuss yours.

I unexpectedly found a calling as a PT wedding officiant in Savannah, GA last year. Here is an infographic that shows the diversity of the couples I've worked with to date. TLDR: All marriage is beautiful & all weddings are unique! #wedding   #weddingplanning   #weddingceremony   #weddingofficiant

New post at +Savannah Custom Weddings & Elopements on how to use technology to plan a stress-free and relaxing honeymoon.
We used technology like Airbnb, Yelp and Fancy Hands to plan the perfect stress-free honeymoon in Puerto Rico.

Prompt 21: Today, I’d like you to revisit what you wrote on the first day of Reverb14. How does that compare to where you are now, i.e. what can you say today with certainty? Then, without thinking too hard about it, grab a pen and some paper and finish…

Prompt 14: The idea of rooting down into your own personal beliefs and center of truth is an ongoing process, and many things can serve as anchors or roots as you move through life. What rooted or anchored you in 2014? And where do you want to put down…

Prompt 20 comes from Jen Lee. Prompt 20: One thing I learned in 2014 was how to make space for joy and levity, even in the midst of challenging circumstances or sad times.  How could you make space for joy in the year to come? How could you protect it? I…

Used Digital Doc on more than one occasion, both for hardware and to speed up computer. Service is impeccable.
