I am an experienced, articulate, and self-assured professional Personal Assistant / Estate Manager / Project Manager / Executive Assistant / Business Manager available for work in the Northeast supporting an artist or high profile individual in a creative or philanthropic field. I use my intelligence, energy, and integrity to free up my clients’ time, manage projects large and small, disrupt inefficiencies, and create opportunities for greater success.
I’ve worn a number of different hats throughout my career, as my résumé illustrates. I have a broad, practical toolkit of skills, all of which contribute to being an outstanding Personal Assistant / Executive Assistant, expert at managing daily stressors and demanding long-term projects. I bring Southern manners and New York resolve to every endeavor. I plan several steps ahead, anticipate needs, generate goodwill even in tough circumstances, learn something new from each project, and deliver results beyond expectations. I thrive in collaboration with smart, creative individuals on a mission and am easy to be with.
In addition to an excellent attitude and tremendous aptitude, I also bring valuable experience gained by supporting diverse artists and executives in the entertainment industry, such as Jazz icons Randy Weston and Don Cherry and music legend David Byrne of the Talking Heads, as well as entrepreneurs, thought-leaders, and executives in the photography, book publishing, real estate investment, and technology worlds.
My clients, employers, and colleagues appreciate my diplomacy, business acumen, and wry sense of humor. I provide both confidentiality and transparency and I engage with respect and empathy. I have limitless hustle, impeccable organizational skills, and am highly adaptable to diverse personalities, shifting priorities, and pop-up deadlines. I keep my eyes on the prize and am able to navigate in complex political environments. The Ryko GM didn’t half-jokingly call me “The Enforcer” for nothing!
I excel at creating order out of chaos in the home, studio, and office. I am a fixer–constantly alert to sidestep pitfalls, solve problems when they do happen, and design a better approach for next time.
If you learn of someone looking for an indispensable and versatile “right hand” with a light touch, I would be grateful for an introduction. I am that person. I am motivated, eager to contribute in a creative environment, and available to relocate within the Northeast.
