Who. What. How.


Together we will work on answering the following:

Who are you?

What do you want to do?

How will you do it?

Whether you have a specific goal in mind or no direction at all, I can help you rediscover your authentic values, skills, and interests and identify specific action steps to landing your next job.



Let's Get to Work

As a career counseling professional, lecturer, wife, and mother of two, I aim to demystify the world of work by offering actionable solutions and digging in to what motivates and inspires my clients.  I whole-heartedly believe that happiness at work is achievable and that we are all in charge of how our lives look. After all, work and life are increasingly intertwined in today's economy. For me, happier at work = happier at home.

The future can be very overwhelming but if you break it down in to smaller, more controllable aspects the task of getting to where you want to be in life doesn't seem as daunting.
