I am a certified and accomplished career counselor providing tailored job coaching services for all professionals, at all levels of an organization, in virtually all industries. I had great success as a Partner in a boutique career consulting firm. In my review one year, the CEO told me I was one of the 'top three executive coaches in the country'. I loved the work of helping folks from practically every job/function possible. Prior to that, and for 10+ years, while leading human resources in a global law firm, my focus was the performance and advancement of lawyers, globally. Therefore, If I had to identify my sweet-spot, it would be coaching lawyers, especially senior-level General Counsels, and Partners.
might be considering a mid-career change by shifting roles or industries

My work is highly customized to each specific, individual client. Together we will develop a plan, taking into consideration the client’s wants and needs, as well as market conditions. Then we create collateral material including the resume, cover letters and a compelling LinkedIn profile, preparing to approach recruiters and the market. Many clients uncover the right role through a conversation, which frequently is a role which has not even been posted; These are referred to as “the hidden jobs”. People often underestimate the power of networking, but I know by assessing my network connections and theirs, and with my, guidance, and insight, they will succeed, using this particular method. I use my enthusiasm, forward thinking, and my vast network in the business community to help my clients build their confidence and develop their passion for self-direction, to take control of their careers. The journey may be a sprint or a marathon, but my clients get results, with my help.
