SAG-AFTRA

Business Representative, New Media Contracts

I'm so excited to be working in such a fresh and quickly growing side of the business! I cut the (cable) cord a few years ago and believe new media outlets will quickly be the norm of how the world accesses their entertainment.

David & Goliath

Business Affairs Coordinator

Getting this job was the biggest lesson in how important keeping my LinkedIn profile up-to-date is because they found me out of nowhere! Advertising is so much more fast paced than television or movies and it was so interesting to discover how passionate companies are about generating creative content.

CBS Television Studios

Executive Assistant, Business Affairs

It was a dream of mine after moving to Los Angeles to work in business affairs for a studio and this job was everything I hoped for and more! I drafted contracts for some of the biggest names in Hollywood and really got a sense of how writer, producer and star talent deals are structured and negotiated.

Screen Actors Guild

Business Representative, Theatrical & Television Contracts

This job started my career in entertainment where I simultaneously discovered my love of movies/TV and working on legal issues. I was able to help educate new filmmakers about how to work with a union and learned how to negotiate and be assertive as a professional.

Women's Sports Foundation

Athlete Marketing Coordinator

I didn't know until working at WSF that they'd helped my high school softball program file a Title IV claim against our school district that helped us build a field that was finally comparable to the baseball fields. The experience of working with the top female athletes in the country and helping them advocate for women's sports was life changing.

New York Mets

Command Center Operator

As a lifelong softball player, it was incredible to walk through the tunnels every day and learn how a stadium runs. It was also pretty great to see Derek Jeter seconds after that infamous dive into the stands and get a view of a Randy Johnson fast ball from behind home plate during a Subway Series.

New York Rangers

Hockey Operations Intern

Before this internship I had been to one hockey game in my life and knew nothing about how a professional sports team was run. Luckily/Un-luckily, I interned during the 2004 season lock-out so I had an incredible education in scouting, minor league programs, combine scheduling, labor relations, and team management during a period that gave me unprecedented access to executives who would have normally been too busy worrying about the season.

New York Law School

JD, Intended practice in entertainment law

I never imagined I would go to law school until I worked in a contract heavy position for a few years and realized that I LOVED contracts! Lucky for me NYLS offered a part-time program that allowed me to continue working while getting my JD. It was definitely stressful and tiring working 8 hours before taking the subway downtown to get to class, but I gained amazing insight into my ability to be organized and make time-management an artform.

Saint John's University

Sports Management, Business

I will forever be grateful to St. John's University Softball for moving me from Avondale, AZ and to New York City. I was initially attracted to St. John's because it had one of the few Sports Management programs in the country. Living in NYC and building relationships with my professors and classmates gave me access to intern and work for the NY Knicks, NY Rangers, NY Mets and US Tennis Center - the home of the US Open.
