When it comes to careers, I walk my own talk. I was once an eager young professional with no clue how to navigate my career. There were only two things in life I cared about: arts/culture, and animals. Today, I successfully (and gainfully!) manage both my passion for media, as well as my passion for animal advocacy. One, literally, feeds the other. The clients are happy, the bills are paid …and, the animals are safe. I couldn’t ask for much more. You can be successful with your goals and passions too!
