kind words from amazing people I've worked with
Emily Frank is one of the most empathetic and connecting individuals I have worked with professionally. After experiencing several lay-offs and getting caught in a cycle of falling into roles that fail to utilize my full skill sets and education, Emily offered perspectives that reminded me I was not alone and I was worthy of respect and a good job. Her approach is rooted in healing, empowerment, and validation while also focusing on the next positive step. Emily is responsive, thoughtful, and personable. She remains sensitive to the experiences of marginalized communities including holding a flexibility with working with lower-earning individuals and an understanding of workplace discrimination. In addition to the emotional support she offered, Emily also offered several key legal insights, wonderful individuals to network with, reflective of her rich network and therefore her ability to build meaningful relationships, strong tweaks to my resume, and new sectors to consider more appropriate to my values and work style.
Emily came to my rescue before a big interview when I hadn’t been to an interview in years, and never for a corporate position. I understood within 5 minutes that I was woefully unprepared to answer the questions that would come my way. Emily was incredibly skilled and helpful. Her guidance helped me prepare quickly and feel confident in 24 hours. Best of all, Emily was warm, encouraging, and precise about what was needed when I was feeling overwhelmed. This really calmed me down, and I ended up having a great interview!

Emily is an encourager of dreams; I am sure many of the students and alumni she’s counseled over the years would surely agree. I am always impressed with her demeanor and openness; she is able to listen and advise her clients on based on their future goals and does not try to stifle them by encouraging them to do things not in the best interest of those goals. Whether you’re somewhat lost on your career path, or if you’re well on your way, Emily will be there to encourage you and suggest excellent resources.
