Today, it is essential to build relationships through networking, learn how to collaborate cross-functionally, and always look for innovative and creative solutions to address change. This is my 16th year of being a proud actor/member of SAG-AFTRA. I am also a Ph.D. candidate at Pepperdine University studying Global Leadership & Change. I would like the opportunity to have a seat on the Los Angeles local board, so I can offer my leadership expertise. I am a communicator at heart, and I believe it is my responsibility to elevate the need for education. With your support, I look forward to sharing the knowledge and strategically leveraging the ability to negotiate and empower all union members.
