an opera singer, a research assistant,
a travel organizer, a wine taster,
& an English teacher.*
The corporate, tied-to-a-desk-for-40-years-with-a-retirement-cake-at-the-end was never for me, and it isn’t for the clients I work with, either.
With so many paths to take in life, I could never stick to just one for decades on end.
As an opera singer, I told vivid stories of love, deceit, betrayal, & passion.
As a research assistant, I collected & sorted data that supported an overarching hypothesis.
As a travel organizer, I provided the scenic background against which my clients would set their greatest adventures.
As a wine taster, I synthesized the story of the land, the maker, the grapes, & the history that filled each bottle.
As an English teacher, I guided my students to tell their own stories through the fresh lens of a foreign language.
I still use these skills every single day. I collect research, set the scene for your next adventure, & guide your clients to join you on your journey.
