Where I’m From
Would love to connect with other local professionals. I travel across the states, but mainly New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Denver. I am originally from the Hudson Valley, NY and love going back to visit!
I have had a long time in the administrative field and I think that it was a natural fit for me, since my Mom was also very administrative as well. (Is there such thing as the administrative gene? Maybe so!) I had many different jobs before starting my career in administration: McDonalds, a local delicatessen, retail and banking. I’ve worked for non-profit, small business, R&D firms and IBM, as well.
In the administrative field, I started out as a receptionist; have been a secretary, executive assistant and an office administrator.
Where I’m At
I am now an Administrative Manager for Arcadis (a global engineering consulting firm) managing approximately 70 staff nationally. I enjoy what I do and have an insatiable quest for knowledge, learning and connecting with people – which I think is part of what has brought me to where I am currently on my life journey. (Everyone has their own interesting life story!)
Where I’m Headed
I found Tara on LinkedIn through reading an article. I reached out by messaging her and asking her to connect. I am excited about her mission/vision. What I hope to find here are ways to synergize with Tara (and others globally) on ways to grow & help bring about the realization of the greater mission of Mentors & Masterminds.
What I’m Most Passionate About
I’m most passionate about helping others live out / become all that they are made to be – living their authentic selves (with their unique talents/strengths) and helping them to connect with others to make their impact & difference in the world.
