I started my career in Having Better Conversations as a cold salesperson at Yelp. Over my tenure at the company, I went from learning the basics of chatting with pizza shop owners to managing a team of a dozen sales people, selling millions of dollars in advertising. I lead the company’s new york city efforts in training new leadership and often lead the training on having difficult conversations with business owners. I was also one of the top hiring managers, having personally conducted hundreds of sales interviews.
After Yelp, I took some time to work on entrepreneurial pursuits, during which I had the pleasure of coaching a TED Talk! With over 15 years experience as an improv comedy actor and stand up comedian, I was able to help shape the talk and provide some coaching around cadence and delivery.
More recently, I continue to manage the customer service team at a luxury charity auction house, where I work on problem solving with high net worth individuals and celebrity, luxury donors.
