It is my mission to help funky, original, global-minded individuals find meaningful work,  or more joy within the work they already have.

Sometimes you need a different kind of career support.  The traditional way of mapping your career can often leave quirky or global-minded people feeling out of sync and lost. If that’s you, there are techniques suited for your needs!

If you are struggling with feeling out of place because you march to a different beat, if people underestimate you because you present yourself a little differently, if people make snap judgments about you because of your tattoos, piercings, clothes, or hair, you are not alone!

Unlike traditional career advice, this approach is a catalyst for your unique brilliance.

I have more than 10 years of experience and a passion for guiding clients towards their most meaningful career path.  From my years living and working overseas and my own education and training, I have gained valuable knowledge and insight into the challenges of transforming this life-altering experience into a meaningful and relevant career.

I am available for both individual and group counseling. Personalized programs may range in length from a few hour-long sessions to multi-week e-mail and/or phone coaching and support.

I can help you:

  • Decide whether to stay at a job or leave it
  • Reinvent yourself after you leave a job
  • Choose a new career path
  • Evaluate opportunities in the world of work
  • Identify career obstacles
  • Stop being the victim of job market circumstance and take charge of your own life!

Learn to:

  • Find jobs you really want
  • Apply for those jobs
  • Interview for those jobs
  • Negotiate a salary you feel good about

Sometimes you need a different kind of career support.

As a career counselor and coach I understand the struggles of choosing and obtaining your ideal career. There is only one way to get that type of empathy. I have walked miles upon miles in those shoes and I have stood at the crossroads and faced the uncertainty of not knowing which way to go. I have felt the nerves of a big interview and also the solitude of discouragement. Someone once did for my career what I now do for others, and that guidance has made all the difference.

My holistic and client-centered approach to helping people find happiness in their work has proved successful for countless clients. I understand and appreciate the uniqueness of each individual’s situation and strive to provide them with the tools for lifelong career development. I am passionate about connecting clients with meaningful, fulfilling careers.

The criteria of employers is constantly changing with the times and I excel in getting resumes, cover letters, interview skills and job search techniques up to date. Millennials, LGBTQI clients, and those with international experience face unique hurdles when it comes to finding that perfect career. I have the experience and passion to understand assists clients in ways that make sense and provide results.
