Define your goals and activate a plan to move forward. If you are stuck and looking to make a transition, are a recent grad, or just need a refresh, we can work together to help you tell your story, showcase your accomplishments and bring light to your vision with one-on-one professional coaching.
What I do best is provide focus, direction and encouragement, connecting people and purpose with possibility. Working for over 20 years in talent and recruiting across a range of industries, I am energized by fueling other’s confidence in finding their strengths and goals. I started out as a coxswain on a college rowing team providing motivation and direction to my teammates, and I continue to be a promoter of others, leading teams and individuals.
The time I spent with Karen to define my career goals and identify my personal brand was game changing. Over the years, I have worked in the career counseling field, met with many advisors, and spent years developing my career path. Karen’s ability to provide clarity and vision to a process that feels overwhelming for literally everyone, was key to helping me identify my path forward and ultimately led to a new position that was a perfect fit. Her approach is simple and focused and allows your strengths and passions to rise to the forefront. A career/job change is not for the faint of heart, but working with Karen gave me energy and excitement around what could and more importantly, should, be next.
