Welcome to this hidden page on my academic services website.
Many people who know my profile as a college admissions specialist don’t realize that I began my career as a professional model at 18, having moved from my little hometown in Virginia to New York City with nothing but $250, an Amtrak ticket, and a dream.
In Manhattan I was discovered by a prestigious Italian modeling agent and sent to Milan to model professionally.
Many photo shoots and commercials later, I returned to NYC where I almost immediately began booking back-to-back contracts playing lead roles on ABC-TV soap operas including All My Children, One Life to Live, and The Edge of Night.
Ironically, when I left that industry at 30 years of age it was to pursue the life of the mind–but wouldn’t you know it, life has had an interesting way of bringing me full-circle.
I now see that my work as an academic can exist alongside offering my services for a few select brands seeking a mid-life model or spokesperson to represent a way of living life: healthy, grounded, and aspirational.
The photos above are shared with client permission related to recent paid modeling I’ve completed. Reach me through the Contact Page of this website to inquire about securing similar services.
