Expert Bio

Hi there! I'm here to share all I know to help you navigate the vast differences in pace, dynamics, culture, and expectations between 3 sectors: public/government, non-profit, and private/corporate. My experience ranges from political campaigns to sales at Google, with plenty of non-profit work in between at the likes of Doctors Without Borders and NYC Pride. If you're thinking of making the leap from one sector to another but aren't sure if it's a good fit, or if you've already made the leap and are struggling to adjust, I'm here to talk to you through how you can not only survive, but thrive in your career change! An MA in International Relations from Kings College London, I was determined to make a career out of non-profit work, but struggled to find my way in that sector. As someone who had to take roles far out of my wheel house, I sometimes felt out of my depth! If you've ever felt this way, know that you're not on your own, and it's absolutely possible to excel with a huge industry change. In my career, I've managed to raise millions of dollars for non-profits, sell millions of dollars working in Big Tech, and help hundreds of constituents with community problems, among other professional accomplishments. Now I'd love to help you figure out how to transition the way I did!
