Welcome!

The communications and media industry is a competitive career environment. In an ever changing digital landscape, are you having trouble keeping up and getting honest answers about the field?

I am here to help you get your career on track. Navigating the waters when you’re starting a career can be hard, as can the transition between school and the business world. Drawing on my own experience, I will tell young professionals about what maintaining a media career is like, what you should know before you start, how to craft a resume that will get noticed, and more. With the right information, you’ll be better prepared to pursue your career.

On my “Lessons from the Newsroom” blog, I share advice on networking with professionals, using social media, making the most of internships, and developing a range of skills to help you prevail on the job market.

Want my help? I work with you one-on-one as a career adviser to help plan out and prepare you for a communications career. To the best of my ability, I’ll tell the truth and share the things I wish someone had told me—and should be telling you but probably aren’t—before starting a media career.

Interested? Email me and we’ll make a plan!

Her kindness is exceptional and, though I had not met Lisa when I reached out through the Tufts alum network, I was pleasantly surprised by her willingness to take me under her wing and encourage me to soar.
