Transition Tuesday: Vice President at Goldman Sachs to Marketing Consultant and Blogger

0

Netta is truly a super mom. She and I have known each other since her son and our youngest daughter were in Kindergarten. Truth be told, Zachary actually had a “Kindergarten crush” on Sydney πŸ™‚ I knew she had a high-powered corporate job and I knew she was extremely busy not just at Goldman Sachs where she was VP of Marketing, but also as a mom of three children. Her Transition Tuesday is interesting. When she and her family moved out of New York City, she took a break from corporate life to focus on the move and her children,…

Transition Tuesday: Apparel Designer to Photographer

0

AHHHHH! Tracey Mammolito is one of my all-time favorite people. She and I met twenty years ago when we were starting out in our fashion careers β€” she a “junior designer” and I a “junior merchandiser” at the behemoth at the time, Liz Claiborne, Inc. We worked on the same brands, Lizsport and Lizgolf which meant we were in every meeting together, working together on samples, velcro paper dolls and prepping for finalization meetings. We quickly became great friends and spent almost every lunch huddled in a conference room discussing the day’s craziness. I SWEAR we coined the term, “Work smarter,…

Transition Tuesday: Medical Billing Associate to Nursing Student

0

Welcome to our fourth week of Transition Tuesday and I hope you’re inspired or at the very least intrigued at my friend’s transitions. This week, I am so happy to introduce you to Chassidy, whom I met while taking classes at CUNY Borough of Manhattan Community College. We met in Anatomy & Physiology I class in the spring of 2016 and then had the opportunity to be in class again in Anatomy & Physiology II in the fall of 2016. Because we are both “non-traditional” students and mothers, we quickly sought each other out for support. We had many late-night texts about…

Welcome to the third Transition Tuesday feature! Lisa Pisano and I have spent a lot of time together the past fifteen years: we worked in corporate marketing and PR at Liz Claiborne, Inc.; we went to graduate school together at New York University where we both received Master’s in Integrated Marketing; we worked as marketing and PR consultants where we partnered on a few clients together; oh, and we are also bloggers. Make sure to follow my other #ttmTransitionTuesday stories! As you’ll see from Lisa’s transition, she stayed within the same industry, but she made it her own. Read on…

Transition Tuesday: Fashion Product Development to Health Coach

0

This is my second Transition Tuesday #ttmTransitionTuesday post. Last week, I wrote about my inspiration for starting this weekly column and about my own transition. Today, I introduce you to Laura Nelson. She and I worked together at Gap Inc. where we worked on the Banana Republic Brand – she as a production manager and I as a merchandising creative strategist. She is a perfect example of a person who successfully transitioned from one completely different career to another. (Full disclosure, I am part of her online fitness group.) Here’s her #ttmTransitionTuesday: Transition Tuesday: From Production Manager to Online Health &…

Transition Tuesday: Marketing to Occupational Therapy

0

As you may or may not know, for the past two years, I have been making a career transition from marketing to occupational therapy. It’s taking a bit of time because in order to even apply to graduate school for occupational therapy, I had to take and complete six science and psychology pre-requisite courses. Although long, it’s gone pretty quickly β€” I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since I started taking my first science course in 2015. In terms of career transitioning, I am not alone. Within my set of friends and acquaintances, I have several who are transitioning…

Tips on Navigating the NYC High School Process

0

So, I haven’t written in a long time and that’s because we’ve got school on the brain. Between the school year starting, me being in school part-time and our newly-minted teenager going through the NYC public high school application process, my time has been very limited. Make sure to scroll down for the discount code for High School 411, a service that helps NYC parents navigate the public high school admissions process! Having said that, we are finally done with the process: 16 tours, 3 separate tests, months of tutoring sessions. I’m not an expert, but having gone through all…

American Girl Debuts WellieWishers for Younger Girls

2

Meet American Girl’s new line of five characters, called the WellieWishers: Ashlyn, Camille, Emerson, Kendall and Willa. This new line is created for the younger girls, ages 5 to 7 years old as they develop social and emotional skills like empathy, compassion and thoughfulness. The WellieWishers also have early chapter books (sold separately) that teach life lessons on sharing, cooperation, respecting feelings and just being a good friend. I attended an event as media and received a WellieWishers doll and book for my attendance. The WellieWishers dolls are 14.5″ tall and retail only $60 (versus the 18″ and $100+ price…

HomeGrown Makeover for our Master Bedroom {BEFORE PICS}

We’ve done a whole lot of interior design re-do’s for our apartment. We started with our girls’ room, because you know the kids always come first … πŸ™‚ … and then last year we redesigned our living room, dining area and the home office which we turned into a sitting room / media room. The only room we needed to deal with was our master bedroom which literally was a sore thumb in the middle of our beautiful apartment. Enter Frederique van der wal (yes the supermodel, now florist entrepeneur) and Carter Oosterhouse, designer extraordinaire who star in their new…

My New Life as a Working Mom, Wife and Student

0

Since I started this new journey of going back to school, my days and weeks have been so different and fractured, but I try to keep somewhat of a schedule for my sanity and my family’s. I start out my week still working as Chief Kidfresh Mom, doing their marketing at Kidfresh HQ here in New York City, still wanting to keep the social media/marketing so-called pilot light on while I work on the next twenty years of my career. Understanding how marketing, social media and web marketing is important β€” no matter what industry, I know that my twenty…

Changes: My Road Back to School

2

I initially started this blog back in 2009, when I took a social media class when I was a candidate for a Master’s of Science in Integrated Marketing at New York University. It was one of our social media projects and loved how engaging and “new” this whole blogging business was. My blog was originally called “Diaper District” because at the time, I was a mom of two very young kids in Lower Manhattan. A few years later, I changed the name to Triple Threat Mommy because it described what I was: a triple threat β€” a mom and wife, a…
