Helen joins the Matchmakers In The City team after years of having previously worked as a Recruiter for a number of the top Matchmaking firms, and the Matchmaker and founder of her own firm. One of the cornerstones of Helen’s life has been connecting people with resources and with one another. She attributes her matchmaking beginnings to her diverse social group during her time in college and law school. After graduating from law school, she later turned that work into an educational consulting business. After marriage and motherhood, Helen took on leadership roles in MOMS Club and Girl Scouts. She also founded a homeschool enrichment co-operative for athletic children. Helen still consults in private education on occasion, but now prefers the exciting work of helping singles complete one of the most important “assignments” of their adult lives: finding their forever person.
After successfully matchmaking a number of high-profile colleagues in the entertainment industry, Jaydi founded a boutique matchmaking and dating coaching business in 2014 where she helped introduce many couples who went on to become engaged or married. She then joined the esteemed team of Matchmakers at MITC. When she is not matchmaking, she is a working TV writer with credits on shows like Family Guy and Salem. Given her background and understanding of the unique needs in that field, she specializes in working with clients in the entertainment industry. She met her own husband Dave, who works on the unscripted side of the business, when he was referred to her as a client. For the first time ever, Jaydi "got high on her own supply" and asked him out on a date. The rest, as they say, is movie magic. She applies that same gut instinct when introducing others, and her absolute favorite clients to work with are ones like her husband, who are essentially the whole package but maybe just need a little nudge in the right direction. She and Dave reside in LA with their adorable and neurotic dog and new baby!
Having introduced her first couple whilst still in college, Carina assured the success of the couple by wing-womaning their first date! 18 years and 4 kids later, they are still going strong. A Canadian expat with a B.F.A, Carina spent a decade working in I.P. Development for clients like Shell Oil and Mandalay Entertainment before utilizing her unique skillset in the Matchmaking industry.
A natural connector with a strong instinct for
who ‘is meant to meet,’ she developed a diverse, international network of friends and colleagues, using her skills to help some fall in love and others to found successful business partnerships. After the 6th marriage between people she had introduced, friends and acquaintances began asking her for help in their own love lives. Turning her natural gift into a professional calling in 2015, Carina has since married her experience as a Matchmaker with a
lifelong devotion to self-development and spirituality, traveling the world to study love in other cultures. Passionate about sharing her unique, practical expertise as both a Dating Coach and Matchmaker, Carina is committed to helping each client find the happiness, peace, and loving connection she longed for and found with her own husband. In addition to love, meditation, road-trips, hot springs, canoeing, pow-wows, and sushi are a few of her favorite things.
