Career Coaching

Career Coaching

Due to my current capacity, I am no longer accepting coaching clients. 

I am passionate about helping my clients find, land, and thrive in their desired career paths.

I began my career in management consulting and then jumped into the exciting world of startups. I spent my entire career in various executive-facing roles, where I had the privilege of working with some of the most exciting companies and capable leaders around the world. While honing my business skills and uncovering what it takes to build high-performing companies, I learned the importance of self-awareness, continuous learning, influence, and grit in one's ability to thrive in his or her chosen career path. My life's purpose is to empower people to lead fulfilling lives -- today, I do this by sharing my business savvy and providing clarity to people who are hungry for more.

DOUBTING YOUR CAREER and are not sure if you are on the right path. You want to know what else is out there but aren't sure where to begin, or feel there are too many or too few options. 

FEELING STUCK in your current position and not sure why or what to do next to get out of your rut. You need help assessing your current situation and finding your fit. 

LOOKING TO UPGRADE but stakes are high and you want to make the right move. You feel out of touch with the market and need to sharpen your brand. 


"I feel stuck and I'm not sure what other jobs I can get" 
"How do I know if this company or role is right for me?
"How do I negotiate my offer?"

You're among hundreds of people who have asked me the same questions. 
Is it time to maximize your market value, hone your brand, and get unstuck?

Let me help you.
