She often works as an on-camera host for various medical telecasts including a recent booking for Takeda in Los Angeles and Orlando.
"Shorey guided me through all the necessary steps to start understanding myself as a business without causing me to feel dehumanized. I now feel I can turn myself into a sellable product and work smarter to find work right for me."
"Thank you so much for keeping it real with me and honest because that's what I needed to be real with myself at the end of the day. Your advice pushed me to devote an hour at least to my craft everyday. I'm looking forward to bigger opportunities in the new year based on your advice."
"Thank you again for such a great consultation last night - The amount of practical information you were able to give me was amazing!"
"I now feel confident enough to get my butt gear and start taking the next steps in building my acting career. I'm meeting with my video editor friend to add my new headshot to my reel, castingabout.com is now part of my morning routine, and I'm committing myself to really studying who's who in casting, finding who I need to work with, and getting in their casting rooms and classes - but it would have all been so overwhelming without your help!! Thank you thank you thank you!"
"I want to thank you again for the session yesterday. It was just what I needed. I feel energized. I feel revitalized. Even spiritualized."
"It's all settling in how amazing that was. Thank you so much for all of the thought and work you put into our meeting. And for your honest feedback as well. I am so grateful, and I'm excited to jump into everything. This is what I needed. WOW."
"I'm so excited to implement what we worked on and get some momentum going! I really appreciated what you said about this being a 'journey' because you're absolutely right! And I'm very grateful I met you along the way!"
"Thanks for rocking my world today and all the career help. Just wanted to let you know I am official on IMDBpro now and I also tweaked my website. More to come!"
"THANK YOU for your generosity and invaluable expertise at last night's Career Consultation, you really went above and beyond. I learned a great deal, have a fabulous to-do list, and enjoyed your company tremendously."
"Can't say how excited I am about my career going forward after my consultation with Shorey!! I haven't lived in the New York City area for very long so I thought sitting down with her and getting her expertise would be advantageous for me coming from a much smaller market in Texas. If you are new to this area as well, I would highly recommend you do the same. She created a plan for me to follow that was specific for me and explained things in detail. I got so much more from her than I initially expected. She was honest with me and gave me plenty of objectives to accomplish. I am ready to hit the ground running and I am so much more confident after meeting with her."
- Reggie Franklin
"Even after graduating from a prestigious theatrical program, I still didn't have a clear direction of the way I wanted my career to take off. Meeting with Shorey was one of the best decisions I've made for my career because she helped me establish attainable goals that were tailored to my specific talents. She has the gift of recognizing potential and positivity in others. She even helped me connect with one of NYC's top commercial and print agencies, and now I'm freelancing with them!"
"You are a ball of fire with a boatload of information and I appreciate you sharing your knowledge, your time and answering all my questions. I'm very excited to begin the process with Actors Connection. Wheels are in motion!"
"Thank you so very much for today. You are a treasure of information, and importantly, willing to share it! I was astounded with your preparation for our meeting (i.e.: me and my stuff). You have given me a clear and concise plan, with concrete steps and how to achieve them to reach my dreams. Notice, I didn't even say, move forward, or take the next step. Those you have given me almost as an afterthought, so, I get to say "reach my dreams". You are the best Shorey. And I have some (a lot of) work to do."
- Julia Beach
"Thank you, Shorey! I really learned a lot and am more aware of the steps I need to take to reach my goals. Thank you for spending so much time with me and breaking everything down. You really encouraged me."
"Thank you, Shorey! I really appreciate your generosity and the time you spent with me today. You were so informative and inspired me to get things moving!"
"Shorey answered every single one of my questions in an extremely detailed and concise way. I feel so clear about the next steps of my career. She was not only quick in all of her responses, but I truly felt like she was invested in helping me in every aspect. I would recommend working with Shorey to anyone! She is tremendously helpful and supportive and I'm so glad I made the decision to contact her."
"Shorey, I am SO glad I had the opportunity to sit down with you. You're experience and insight is amazing. I'm kinda blown away by the (extra!) time you spent with me, all the research you did, and the thoughtful, poignant advice you offered. I'll get to work on my to-do list and I really look forward to seeing you again soon!"
"Thank you for taking the time to check me out thoroughly and brainstorm all these wonderful ideas. I will apply them ASAP! Thank you again for helping me see more clearly how to position myself in this business and for sharing the confidence you have in me."
"It was such a pleasure meeting you today. I really appreciate your honesty, advice and direction in regards to my career. I got all of my questions answered and am really excited to pursue an acting career. Thanks again."
"It was a pleasure meeting and speaking with you. It was time well spent and very informative. I knew there was a lot to do, but speaking with you showed me just how much more is needed!"
"Hey Shorey, Just wanted to shoot you an email and thank you SO, SO much again for all of the info and answering all of my questions today. You have helped me so much in just that short hour, I literally cannot thank you enough! I was starting to feel like a lost puppy beforehand. Starting my to-do list tonight. Thanks again!"
"Shorey, thank you so much for such an eye opening session. The wealth of information you gave me and the generosity you showed me were incredible. I have so much to think about now and so many ways in which to improve. I am so happy I came to you."
"I really am thankful that I had the opportunity to talk with you, Shorey. You were very straightforward, honest and made me feel comfortable while giving me vital information. I have spent the last day and half going through it all and doing my homework with the research and analyzing what I need to do with my career based on your advice. I am feeling so much better about moving forward in this city. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you and I know I will be back in your office again!"
"It was so wonderful meeting you this morning. I can't tell you how much better I feel knowing that I have a very simple, tangible and realistic game plan to move forward with. You are exactly what I have been needing and I can't thank you enough for your honesty and encouragement! I am working through all the points we discussed today and I am realizing the importance of being very honest and clear with everyone I am working with. It never dawned on me that I have to define how they pitch me. Thanks again for everything!""
"Shorey, you are such an incredible treasure, and there's no doubt in my mind that I was led to you! Thank you sooo much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to go above and beyond for my career today. I can't begin to explain what you've done for me. You made me feel so special and worthy of success; it's hard to believe that this is the first time we've met! I've been feeling so overwhelmed in this city as you know, but with your help, I finally feel like I have a beacon of light to follow. I can't wait to take the steps you've outlined for me, and I sincerely look forward to meeting with you again!"
