💼 Past Experience
Coach:I initially became interested in coaching during my time as an Assistant Coach at a high school in Venice, CA. While I was coaching, I noticed a trend in my clients’ ability to manage their stress and handle life challenges. The coaches that I worked with consistentlydemonstrated remarkable success in managing the stress in their lives and managing the progress of their athletes. I decided to become a coach, and soon after founded my own coaching business, The Coaching Academy. In my coaching business, I’ve seen coaches of all levels of experience work together to help their athletes achieve their goals. I’ve also seen coaches use everything from bio-feedback technology to meditation to lectures on stress management to help their athletes achieve success.Consultant:I began my career as a consultant in 2013, when I joined Netflix as Vice President, Talent. I worked on a variety of projects, including developing and executing a Talent Strategy, leading a team of Recruiters, and managing the hiring process. In my time at Netflix, I developed strong relationships with many of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Kevin Spacey, Matt Damon, and Scarlett Johansson. I also developed a strong understanding of how to connect with and attract top talent, which I would eventually use to start my own company, Initiative.Advisor:I am currently a counsel at Ellavate, where I work as a Chief People Officer. I joined the company in 2017 as a result of my experience as the Vice President, Talent at Netflix.
