When people ask me what I do, I simply say “I help people find or create jobs they like and will be good at.” To me, that means creating a career based on your natural talents and learning to communicate those effectively to people who will hire you. I call that “Creating a Strengths-Based Career.” 


I’ve made it my life’s mission to support, encourage, and inspire people to live more meaningful lives. That’s what makes my life meaningful.


I coach early and mid-career professionals seeking a career change and searching for new jobs to understand their natural talents, identify opportunities in the current market to use those talents, and communicate their value effectively to people who can hire them. I meet with clients across the United States by Zoom video. 


I work with people who have big questions about what’s next who want support and guidance to figure it out and then need help to get there. I support job seekers step by step all the way to the finish line. 


For over 20 years I’ve done this through my work in higher education as a college career counselor, advisor, and faculty member teaching career and learning strategy courses. I’ve taught MBA students, first-year undergraduate students, and everything in between. I currently teach the MBA Career Management class at Colorado State University and provide career coaching at CSU and online for The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Over the years, I've expanded into private practice to serve career transition and job search clients who want to create a more meaningful life. 


I’ve developed a unique way of looking at a career, combining my training in Strengths with my knowledge of Career Development to help all the people I serve to create strengths-based careers.

Rather than reactively scouring job boards for the perfect job, I help people deconstruct the process of career change and job search into its elements to break big overwhelming transitions into actionable steps. I’d love to help you on this journey.
