Teaching young people how to use what they have learned in the classroom to one day land a seat in the boardroom.


There are currently more than 700,000 podcasts and upwards of 29 million episodes. After taking a leap of faith, I am joining the ranks! My one little podcast among the 700,000 out there, gives me such much joy.

What is the podcast about?


STRIVE for Success


"Welcome to STRIVE where we will work together to meet all your personal and professional goals with a positive mindset and a resilient attitude. Let's learn how to improve our interpersonal skills and our public speaking skills. Let's discover best practices for creating and updating resumes and cover letters. Let's uncover the winding path to your success. Let's do this together."

How can you listen to the podcast?

Now available on Spotify and iTunes where listeners can download the podcast directly to their device and listen without using cellular data, the STRIVE for Success podcast is more accessible than ever! Everyone from high school students in underprivileged areas to tech-savvy professionals 25 years into their career can access the podcast and learn how to continue learning and growing in a way that will aid in their personal and professional lives.

This podcast is not only an extension of the Scholarship & Success social impact initiative I have developed through my participation in the Miss America Organization, but it is also a small step towards my goal of starting my own small business one day. Hopefully this podcast will resonate with at least one person somewhere in the world.

Happy listening!

Stay tuned this week for Episode 2 which will discuss some of the most common interview questions and how to give a top notch answer. Episode 3 and 4 will be live next week!

You've done it! You have graduated high school, to college, or grad school. But now what? Are you going straight into the work force? Applying to schools? Or maybe both?

Do you know how to write a cover letter? Resume? What do you wear to your job or school interview? What about follow-ups with your interviewers?

We go to school for years, but often we never learn the practical skills on how to land a job. 

How do we take what we learned in the classroom so we can land a seat in the boardroom?

There is not one-step answer. There is not secret formula. Every single person's path to success is completely unique. But there are a few things I can do to help make your journey a little smoother and hopefully faster!

So where do you start?

Head to the SUCCESS tab and check out all the content on how to find success through some simple strategies. 

You will find information on how to prepare a proper cover letter and an effective resume. 

There is also interview tips, lessons, and practice. 

Then there is also me! Connect with me for personal help and advice on how to land the job, get accepted into your dream school, or simply excel in your current job role.
