Since the launch of Career Survival Guide, organizations and have invited me to speak to employees about career development, D&I (diversity and inclusion), and my experiences in the media industry. I am open to participating in conferences, panels, and virtual events. If you're reaching out on behalf of a professional organization or university group, please email with "Speaker Request" in the subject line.

Event emceeing & on-camera hosting

I currently anchor daily broadcast segments on KCTS (Seattle's PBS station), and I have also emceed several Seattle-area events since 2013. These include cultural events, pageants, and formal ceremonies. I have 7 years of on-camera experience, ranging from public access television to YouTube shows. As a journalist, I worked full-time as a tech reporter (2018-2019) and legislative reporter (2017).


Consulting for organizations

Diversity in decision-making is important. That's why I offer consulting to organizations interested in getting a second opinion on their content strategy, especially for content geared towards millennial audiences and folks of underrepresented backgrounds. I'll give you my perspective as a millennial and as a video producer committed to diversity & inclusion.


I have a deep understanding of digital content from both the production and distribution sides.  As a journalist, I created daily videos as a one-woman band (shooting footage, conducting interviews, writing scripts, reporting on-camera, and editing videos myself). Without the help of a video production crew or designated social media team, I helped grow YouTube subscriptions 41% for a Seattle-area tech news company in only 10 months. If you need help growing your social media presence, let's chat.

E-courses for college students and young professionals

As a college student, I began my senior year with no internship experience but graduated with two TV news job offers, a portfolio I was proud of, and four journalism internships under my belt. Over the years, students have asked for my advice on how to increase their chances of getting offers themselves. I'm currently working on e-courses to answer the most frequently asked questions. Get on my email list, so you'll be the first to know when these are available.

Giving back is important to me, and I do a limited number of pro bono events and projects every year. If you're a non-profit or small organization interested in my services, please email me with "Volunteer Request" in the subject line, and I'll see what I can do!
