Career Development for Early Career Professionals

Let’s talk about career development and how to continue developing and advancing. We’ll talk about developing resilience, handling difficult moments at work, asking for and receiving feedback, managing priorities and finding a mentor. 

Career Coaching

Our careers are a journey – not a destination.  My work as a coach focuses on meeting you wherever you are on your path and serving as your guide as you navigate the twists, turns and obstacles that are in your path. I’ll help you clarify what is most important to you and then support you in making decisions and taking action to get you going on the right path for you.  My career coaching practice includes the services below.

  • Career Exploration:  Talk with me 1:1 about your current challenges, your dreams and goals. I’ll help you clarify, explore and decide what steps will get you on the path that is right for you.
  • Career Coaching: Are you clear on where you want to go, you just need support getting there? You might need help networking, interviewing, negotiating or having difficult conversations at work. I can help you practice the skills you need so you can move forward.
  • Career Assessments: If you have taken assessments and inventories I can help you understand and use them. If you’d like to take new assessments I can assist you with those as well.
  • Career Tools: Your resume, your LinkedIn profile and your personal brand are all tools that can help you get to where you want to go. I can help you prepare, edit and revise these tools so you can put your best foot forward.

About Me

We can always learn and grow. My approach in working with clients is to begin by listening with gratitude ,openness and a deep respect for my clients. I want to know your strengths so we can build up and get better! I believe that my clients are already striving to be their best; I meet them where they are and focus on providing the support they need to keep moving forward.

I earned my Master’s degree in Counseling and my Doctorate in Educational Psychology from the University of Minnesota. My nerdiness pairs well with my enthusiasm for helping others! I have over 20 years of experience working as a counselor, professor, evaluation consultant and analytics professional. In 2022 I co-authored the book, “College to Career: Making the Most of Your Journey.”  I am an enthusiastic and compassionate professional who inspires clients to achieve their goals!
