I am passionate about encouraging others to find career satisfaction. My objective is to provide clients with an actionable framework to assist them in their challenging educational and career choices. The Highlands Aptitude Battery provides a critical first-step foundation for an individual’s career search. I support the Highlands Whole Person Model by providing pre and post battery sessions to ensure a client’s goals, values and background are taken into consideration and that the battery results are effective and utilized. The process includes an in-take session, a feedback session to go over aptitude results as well as follow-up sessions for in-depth discussion on career/major selection.


My experience includes 22 years in management, corporate marketing and entrepreneurship in the film, beauty and fashion industries. In Hollywood, I was Manager of West Coast Publicity and Promotions at 20th Century Fox. In New York, I was the Global Communications Manager for the Jo Malone fragrance brand of the Estee Lauder Companies. Following my corporate experiences, I launched a fashion design company, Herff Christiansen, which introduced me to the world of entrepreneurship and building a business from ground up. I now wish to apply my business experience, industry knowledge and strategies to helping others discover their ideal career.
