Feel fabulous about
your career!


We are open for remote appointments!

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 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!

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

Consider working with us!

Some people have a different mindset than others. They’re more creative, quirky, and independent, which causes them stress when searching for the right job. If you have a job and don’t feel like it is right for you, it could be helpful to work with a career coach.

At Denver Career Catalyst, I understand the challenges that you face every day. If you’re in a situation where you dislike your job, don’t feel qualified, or feel overqualified, you’re less likely to enjoy waking up and going to work. If you feel that you’re out of place or you’re undervalued or underestimated because you have a slightly different presentation, you aren’t alone. You deserve to have coworkers who respect you and a career that you enjoy.

It is possible to find more meaningful work or learn how to experience the joy in the career you’ve already got. Career services in Denver can help you do this. All services can be done online or in person.

Quirky, creative, and international types deserve success, too!

What I love to do

my passion is helping people like you

I can help you:

Want a job? Better be on social media

Ultimately you will need social media if you’re looking for a new job.   According to a 2018 Career Builder survey, 70% of employers use social media in the hiring process, and when they can’t find anything online, they may well not call you.  And that survey was before the pandemic!   What business do they…

SM feed bumming you out?

I’ve been there too.  I get all kinds of bent out of shape when people tell me that unfriending people for “just politics” is silly and petty.  I’m Japanese American.  I haven’t forgotten that “just politics” sent us to the US concentration camps, and if my family hadn’t been living in Hawaii at the time,…
