What do I send you for application review?

Always send your documents to me in PDF format – it’s how I can best edit them on my iPad and ensure that what I’m seeing on my end is exactly what you’re seeing on your end!

I don’t live in Michigan. Can I still work with you?

Absolutely! Most of my students are long distance so we have our coffee and discuss edits/practice mock interviews over Zoom! Zoom is an easy-to-use video conference application (similar to Skype) that allows me to send an individualized link to each of my mentees. Simply click the link that I send you via email at the time of our meeting and we’ll finally meet face-to-face!

What exactly does mentoring entail?

There are so many options! Whether you’re looking to apply for practicums or internships, wanting to practice interview questions to get the jitters out and receive honest, constructive feedback or just want some guidance on if you’re on the right track as you navigate the field – click here to see all of the options available to you!

What does interview prep consist of?

I have a list of about 20 questions for mock interviews for both practicum/internships that will help you become more confident in your abilities as a future child life specialist.

I have used these mock interview questions with my last three semesters of practicum students and all have come back to say how multiple questions that I gave them for practice were asked of them during interviews – they were so relieved at how much it helped them relax during their interviews and in turn, they now have internships or jobs themselves!

Do you help with job interview prep?

Yes! Choose either a basic 30-minute prep or advanced 60-minute prep to get those jitters out and see how well you can integrate what you’ve learned from internship into the real world with YOU in the driver’s seat. You’re so close to achieving your dream! Click here to book your interview session.

Do you offer consults to students who could use some direction but aren’t necessarily ready for practicums or internships?

Due to the high demand, I will now offer a 30-minute customizable Zoom call! This can be for guidance and support regarding the child life field, suggestions on where to gain additional experiences, portfolio support, or clarifications on essays you have submitted – this session is totally customizable to fit what YOU are needing in your child life journey right now.
