Q: What's your advice for making a good first impression in a new industry?

A: "Don't make assumptions about your new industry based on previous experience. Instead, ask questions—not only to learn but also to show you're interested and enthusiastic about your new position. Speak up and share applicable best practices from your previous line of work, but avoid being the person who's unwilling to adapt."

CEO, Success Coach

I help my clients go from dabbling in their side hustle to dominating! Drawing on my own experiences going from blogging in my spare time on a free WordPress blog to two book deals, gigs writing for Forbes and ESPN and quitting my job as a corporate attorney, I help clients become more visible and more (in)credible so they can ditch their 9-5.

Interests

I love to write, and I get a little jittery when I go more than a day or two without writing something. When I do take breaks from writing and coaching clients, I love to be outside. My hubby and I live at the beach, so we spend a lot of time out there, but we also loving spending time in both the summer and winter out in Col...

I have my dream job, and I fight hard to keep it! Not only do I get to write for a living - while working from anywhere! - I get to help other people become visible experts or build up their side businesses and leave their 9-5s to create their own dream jobs as a success coach.

Reputation Ink

Vice President, Public Relations

While at Reputation Ink, I coached clients on becoming "visible experts." Having used blogging and social media to transition my own career from attorney to journalist in the past, I shared my expertise in these areas with clients seeking to broaden their reach and build their brand.

Associate

I was a real estate finance associate at Taylor English. A large portion of my practice focused on housing and community development transactions that utilize federal and state low-income housing tax credits, historic preservation tax credits, CDFI, CDBG and HOME funds and various other sources of public financing. In this capacity, I represented lenders, syndicators, developers and property owners.

My practice included representing a CDFI in their nationwide lending transactions. In this context, I handled acquisition, construction and permanent financing transactions totaling over $45 million in CDFI funds.

Career

University of Florida - Fredric G. Levin College of Law

Juris Doctor, Law

Getting into UF for law school was a dream come true! These three in the picture were my best friends in law school, and I'm lucky enough to live two blocks from one of them now. It was while I was at UF that I wrote a legal journal article about the business of MLB, which eventually led to my first book deal and the opportunity to write for Forbes . . . which changed my entire career path in the most unexpected ways!

Oglethorpe University

Bachelor of Arts, Politics

I majored in Politics, knowing I wanted to go to law school. Looking back, I wish I'd majored in Journalism (although that wasn't even an available major when I was at Oglethorpe). Regardless, the years I spent at Oglethorpe were amazing, and I know my experience there shaped me as a writer. I've served on the Board of Trustees previously, and I remain very dedicated to my undergraduate institution.
