Q&A

Describe your coaching style.

My coaching style is very results-driven and directive. I assist clients in forming a competitive action plan to land their next offer!

Who is your ideal client and why?

My ideal client is a person who is transitioning into a new industry or desires to upskill to advance in their current career and is looking for ways to navigate the job market and influence their network

How do you measure success with a client?

Having a client with a clear understanding and pathway to their goals and an aligned plan of action.

What is your coaching superpower?

I am an underdog. I completely understand what it's like from the client's side of navigating a complex job search without the correct tools. I scale my coaching style based on my extensive networking skills and learning how to “use what I have right now at this moment” to gain strides in my professional career. I teach others how to do this as well.
