I'm a Seattle-based TV news anchor who’s passionate about helping women and POC advocate for themselves at work. Most days, you can find me anchoring news segments and hosting "Crosscut Now" on KCTS 9 (Seattle's PBS news channel).
Outside of journalism, I'm a communication consultant and the founder of Career Survival Guide, which helps women and POC through career workshops/speaking engagements, free content on YouTube and Instagram, and 1:1 coaching.
I created Career Survival Guide after noticing a serious problem throughout my career: Women and POC face unique barriers to professional success, and many of us feel unprepared to navigate these barriers upon joining the workforce.
Since 2020, I have conducted dozens of research interviews with early-career women and POC to better understand what they need to feel supported in the workplace. Drawing from this research, I create content that addresses my audience's pain points. I also work with HR professionals and companies by sharing key themes from my research and strategies for retaining early-career women and POC. My clients include AT&T, the Society for Human Resource Management, and educational organizations.
Additionally, I regularly publish free career resources on social media. For my YouTube series, I conducted in-depth interviews in the U.S. and Asia with leaders in business, tech, and media. These interviews include former MSNBC correspondent Mariana Atencio, Harvard Business Review contributor/diversity & inclusion expert Ruchika Tulshyan, and impact investor Maoi Arroyo.
Through my services and content, you will learn strategies to help you advocate for yourself at work, grow your visibility among company decision-makers, and communicate with confidence.
