This is one of my favorites! Each week I talk to local professionals to get an inside glimpse into what they do and ask them to offer advice to teens who may be considering a job in that field. Teens homeschooling in Nevada and considering college or moving into a trade school can get to know more about the career they intend to pursue. I’ve recently spoken to NEAT Services and a marketing director at the YMCA. I also spotlight local teens each week who are entrepreneurs, leaders or influencers in the community.This week I reached out to Valerie Witherspoon, a versatile actress who performs in “FRIENDS! The Musical Parody” in Las Vegas. Witherspoon is a swing in the show, jumping from one role to another seamlessly. She shared advice for teens looking to work as professional performers and singers, how to get started in the industry as a teen and how to use a theater degree for more than waiting tables!
