The music industry is all about the hustle.
And it can weigh you down. You’re going from job to gig to freelance to building up your career and it can be exhausting.
You’re grabbing something to snack on when you can, avoiding workouts like the plague, and thinking “Who am I to do this? I’ll never be as good as [insert name]”
It happens to all of us. It happened to me.
And that’s why I’m here - to help you reset your mindset and manage your personal wellness all while hustling, achieving, and succeeding in the music industry.
Who Am I?
I was born in Canada, raised in central New Jersey, and currently reside in Los Angeles, California. I'm an avid reader and learner, equestrian, gluten-free vegan, fitness nut, and most importantly am obsessed with music. So much so, that I have not one, but two degrees in music industry.
Music has been a significant part of my life since I was young, but growing up on the east coast with access to both Philadelphia and New York City gave me the opportunity to frequent concerts of all kinds, from the basement shows in Northeast Philadelphia to the famed venues of New York City. I fell in love with the industry, and soon completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Business at Lebanon Valley College
After several years of struggling to start a career in the industry, I left New Jersey and moved to the west coast to complete a Master of Arts degree in Music Industry Administration at the California State University, Northridge. I was offered my first full-time job in the industry as soon as I arrived in Los Angeles and gained more knowledge and experience than I could have ever hoped for.
Working full time and attending night school took its toll on me though - I had zero time to manage my personal wellness, and while I thought I was doing the right thing by mostly eating healthy and walking to class, it wasn’t nearly enough. I never had energy, lost muscle mass and gained weight, had old injuries resurface, and was constantly terrified of networking and finding my own path in the industry.
Then I found a book you may have heard of: You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome life by Jen Sincero
That one book was all it took for the wheels to start turning. I was hooked on the idea of entrepreneurship, universal energy, and finding my own path. I felt drawn to helping women in music find their voice after the release of the USC Annenberg Inclusion in the Recording Studio? report and the 2018 Grammy Awards (#Grammysomale) and launched The Broken Glass Blog followed a few months later by The Broken Glass Podcast.
Who am I to help women in music find their voice? Who am I to provide the tools and resources to succeed?
I took all my limiting beliefs, silenced the voice in my head, and pushed forward because someone has to share these stories, create a network of collaborative women, and help women find success in the industry.
As I moved through my own personal wellness journey while working a full time job and building up the podcast and business, I found that so many other women were looking for advice, accountability, and tips to managing their personal wellness as they hustled, gigged, and toured.
I started the Managing Personal Wellness 5 Day Email Challenge and am looking to start a small group coaching program just for women in music looking to better manage their personal wellness.
So…what can I do for you?
I have a vast knowledge of the music industry and experience in developing a personal wellness plan while working full time, starting a business, and networking like crazy (did I tell you I got over that fear?!).
I can help you:
Develop a personal wellness plan to help you manage your wellness whether you’re on the road, hustling from job to job, or working hard as an executive.
Help you DIY your next album or project
Build and draft your business and / or go-to-market plans
Create a pitch deck with your business in mind
And much much more!
I never stop hustling, like ever.
I dabble in different creative outlets, mostly photography and freelance writing. You can find my work in various locations across the Internet:
