Speaking Engagements & Workshops

Since the launch of Career Survival Guide, organizations have invited me to speak to their employees about career development, self-advocacy at work, D&I (diversity and inclusion), and my experiences as a TV news anchor. My past clients include AT&T, the Society for Human Resource Management, and the University of Washington.


I am currently accepting requests to speak at conferences, panels, and virtual events. If you would like to submit a speaking request, please fill out this form.

1:1 Coaching

As a 1:1 coach, I can help you in the following areas:

  • Advocating for yourself at work

  • Growing your visibility among company decision-makers

  • Looking, feeling, and sounding more confident when speaking in front of small and large audiences

  • Building your credibility on camera (ex. Zoom or Microsoft Teams video calls)

  • Communicating about your accomplishments

1:1 coaching is the fastest way to improve your skills. In addition to giving you personalized guidance and feedback, I'll also be your accountability partner as you work towards your goals. If you're interested in working with me, fill out this contact form so we can schedule a free 30-minute consultation call.

Consulting for organizations

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 work with HR professionals, hiring managers, and company decision-makers by sharing key themes from my research and strategies for retaining early-career women and POC.

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 9 years of on-camera experience, ranging from TV news to YouTube shows. As a journalist, I also worked as a technology reporter (2018-2019) and legislative reporter (2017).
