MEET YOUR CAREER STRATEGIST
I am a certified career development services provider and a content marketing professional. While I dedicated the first half of my career to helping Fortune 500 companies understand how to more effectively communicate and connect with their consumers, career development has enabled me to shift my career objectives from helping oversee the growth and development of products, to people.
My approach comprises a dynamic combination of skills anchored in nearly two decades of marketing, editing and storytelling principles gleaned from the business world, an advanced degree in psychology, ongoing career development education and real-world experience (like getting laid off, nursing a bruised ego and establishing a new career path).
As you find yourself at a career crossroads, my goal in partnering with you is to be an essential link that helps transition your career objectives from a place of genuine intention to one of confident, decisive action. To provide you with a career compass that helps your clarify your goals, streamlines the process, moves you forward and builds successful, satisfying connections on the other end.
