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:

  • Decide whether to stay at a job or leave it

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,…

Don’t hit on people in LinkedIn.

You would think this goes without saying, but, alas, I have been hit on twice online, and both times were on LI.  (I ignore or delete these messages, but frankly it feels quite creepy.)  LinkedIn is very much a place of work, and if these 2 dudes were my clients, I would have firmly (but…

Are you doing social media right?

The spaces can be really confusing.  Should I be on Twitter?  How complete does my LinkedIn profile need to be?  What the heck is the point of Snapchat?   And the truth is, there’s no real solid answer to any of this.  However, it is important to be somewhere on social media so that prospective…
