What Do You Want In a Career Coach?


I like Chinese food and Oolong tea.

If those things weren’t on your list of criteria for a career coach, then I have a bunch of certifications and qualifications, too—

  • Certified Professional Résumé Writer (CPRW);

  • Member, CPRW Certification Committee

  • National Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE)

  • Certified Skillscan® Practitioner           

  • Certified MBTI ® Practitioner                

  • Authorized DISC Administrator and Behavioral Consultant (Profiling Pro)

  • Certified Everything DiSC (Wiley) Trainer

  • Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+)

But those mostly point out I know what to do. To me, it’s more important you understand why I love to do what I do and and how I help you.


Here’s the whyI care because I've probably have been where you are right now. Looking for a new job, out of work, unfulfilled in your present job or convinced there was something else you should be doing.

Maybe that’s you or perhaps one of these scenarios describes what’s going on with you:

  • Company layoffs

  • Fear of Changing Careers

  • Entrepreneur startups

  • Interviewing anxiety

  • Résumé needs updating



Here's how you’ll benefit by hiring me:

  1. I will work with you to capture your unique story and personality to gain you more response.
    A free service can’t do this for you.

  2. I’ll capture your human element, in addition to optimizing your résumé  for the ATS.

  3. My available services include practice interviewing, enabling you to stand out during the interview process.

  4. As an experienced coach and interviewer, I’ll ask you questions that help you re-discover your strengths and transferable skills.

  5. You'll know I understand you: I’ve been in your shoes; I’ve worked for hi-tech, government, and higher-ed. I was laid off multiple times. I switched careers several times.

  6. I know what I’m doing. Check my credentials and more importantly, my client testimonials.
