Hello, and welcome to my online portfolio! I am the Assistant Director of Career Services at Tarleton State University, where I have the privilege of impacting students' lives and building relationships with employers for the mutual benefit of both. My responsibilities include:
I have a diverse background that includes employment in nonprofit settings, for-profit companies, and government agencies. I have counseling experience spanning a variety of areas including career and professional development at various stages of career preparedness.
On my site you will find information that demonstrates my abilities, strengths, and experience. Please look around and use the Contact page to send a message if you have any questions or comments. Thank you for your interest!
As much as I love books, not everything you learn in college is in a text. Visit my blog for some easy-to-read and (mostly) quick suggestions, ideas, and links on professional development!
See samples of my writing, design, and planning skills.
These are some of my favorite online tools and sites. Take a look, read, check out the resources - lots of good information and opportunities to be had!
The Daily Muse: Everything you could ever want to know to be better, more productive, and overall amazing in your career! Learn about great companies and find a new job while you're at it!
LinkedIn: Networking, news, and job opportunities, all in one place. Best of all? It's free! Great resource for a professional online presence and development!
Levo League: By women, for women. Professional networking, mentoring, job opportunities, and resources targeting young, female professionals. Like LinkedIn, you can create a free account.
Greater Good Science Center: Based out of UC Berkeley, the Greater Good, "studies the psychology, sociology, and neuroscience of well-being, and teaches skills that foster a thriving, resilient, and compassionate society." Lots of great articles and tools, and even a MOOC!
Huffington Post: News, opinion, entertainment, and more. Also woman owned!
Please note that although I reference my professional career, and my current and previous employers on my website, the content and opinions expressed on my site and on my blog are mine alone. As with many things in life, there is overlap between personal and professional. I wouldn't blog about career-related topics if I did not have professional involvement in career development! This small slice of the web is where I post content that is related to the field in which I work and about which I am passionate, but this content is not on behalf of or representative of any entity to which I am or have been affiliated.
