Where are you from and where do you currently reside?

 

 

I grew up in Saxonburg, PA and lived there throughout my grade-school years and my freshman year of college. In my second year of college, my family decided to downsize our house and we moved over to Franklin Park, PA and I lived there with my parents throughout the rest of my college career. After graduating from college I decided to find a place of my own and now I currently live in Brooklyn with my cat Jinx. 

 

What college/university did you attend?

 

I attended school at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in Slippery Rock, PA. At first, I went to school for Communications with a focus in Digital Media Production. However, after my second year of college, I found that I had a passion for gender studies, which focused on the equal rights of women, the LGBTQ+ community, people of color and people with disabilities. After taking several gender studies courses, I decided to minor in Gender Studies and personally it was one of the best decisions I ever made. A year later in my junior year at SRU, I decided to minor in Film and Media Studies to have the ability to have a deeper analysis on cinematic review and to understand the subliminal messages that directors hide in their films. 

 

How did you get your start in your career?

 

In my senior year, I was fortunate  to have two consecutive internships to help establish a new consulting company, Transforming Culture Consultants. During that time, I conducted research, developed materials and supported the co-founders in all aspects of creating this new company. 

 

Do you have any passions/interests outside of work?

 

 

When I’m not in the office, I like to spend time with my friends, family and partner as well as our two cats at home. My passions outside of work include screenwriting, producing music and attending music festivals with friends.  

 

What inspired you to help create TCC?

 

I would have to say that my Gender Studies classes helped me to decide to help create TCC. At first, I was an intern for the Sustainable Entrepreneur Accelerator (SEA) at SRU, and TCC was one of my first clients I was assigned. I worked with them for over a year, at first doing extensive research on all aspects of starting a business from the ground up.  After graduation, TCC offered me a position to continue my work with them and I am so happy to help a company in which I truly believe is going to make a positive impact on the workplace.
