Believing you need to keep the spark alive in both family and work life, I challenge clients to grow their careers and businesses while finding meaning and maintaining balance. I enjoy working with visionaries willing to break rules to blaze a dynamic path. I love helping entrepreneurs thrive in business while leaving their unique impression on the world.
I offer a mix of personal branding expertise, counseling skills, and clear-headed insight, helping creatives, solopreneurs, and changemakers navigate less linear career paths. My experiences running a branding business and a women's magazine trained me to sharpen clients' financial savvy and basic messaging, while my MSW gave me tools to help clients overcome self-limiting beliefs.

Coaching to help you reach
Your Career Goals
As your career destination becomes clearer, I can help you clarify your goals, so you can start building habits to overcome feelings of paralysis or overwhelm in your career. I want you to thrive in creating a career that feels successful on your terms and meets you needs for balance, flexibiity, and engagement.
Continuous career counseling
I'm not just interested in just "finding you a job." I work with people who want more from their work than just a paycheck and seek meaning, fulfillment, and challenged in their work. I pride myself on building long-term relationships with clients and stay in touch whenever you need to reach out for more support.
