My Approach

I believe you have an important contribution to make, and I believe you can become highly successful with the right knowledge, strategy, AVand support.

I’ve spent 20 years helping regular people who, for whatever reason, struggled at work or in their careers. I’ve been in your shoes. I was laid off. I’ve been in unhealthy work environments. I’ve struggled finding the right career fit and work environment for my personality.
Confusing life experiences are normal. Knowing yourself is key!

3 secrets to finding a meaningful, sustainable career that no one talks about:


  • Enhancing Emotional Intelligence is proven to be the single most powerful thing you can do to advance your career, professional and personal relationships, and your overall happiness.
  • Want to better understand yourself, transform your ability to communicate with others, and make better career and life decisions? The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is the world’s most widely used personality assessment.
  • We’re emerging from the economic uncertainty of COVID-19 but navigating the job-search in a post-pandemic world is still challenging. A robust, compelling resume in a modern, easy-to-scan format is essential to displaying your experience and skills.
