"I help creatives unpack their career-blockers so they can become top performers in any capacity."
Sacsha's personal journey to self discovery.
In the beginning
After working for over a decade in the fashion industry, I decided to leave.
While I wouldn't recommend just quitting, letting go was what I felt I had to do at the time. Working as a designer for top retailers had perks, but I knew I wanted more out of life. But what did more look like to me?
While searching for my purpose, I worked odd jobs, freelanced, and took some much-needed time to re-envision what I wanted. The path wasn't easy—the struggle was real until I stopped fighting the process and learned to embrace it. I discovered when I became clearer on what I wanted and more open to opportunities, endless possibilities presented themselves.
My journey has taught me that I love supporting creatives with their career development. And that transitioning my skills into coaching is a natural fit.
For five years, I worked as a Student Success Advisor at Parsons School of Design, where I coached fashion students, career-changers, and alums to reach their academic/career goals. I also worked as a Creative Talent Manager at Alexander Wang Inc., where I managed all creative recruitment and employee development.
Today, I lead the Office for Career and Internship Services at the New York School of Interior Design and work independently with clients at Nu Phase.
What we want out of our careers and life depends on our willingness to look within and discover our roadblocks.
Through my non-traditional approach, I dig into my client's biggest career blockers, and together we create actionable steps for better outcomes.
Having gone through the ups and downs myself, I know what it takes to achieve fulfillment no matter where life takes me, and want to share my tools and strategies to help creatives lead successful careers and rewarding lives.
