A Career Development Professional experienced in serving clients from entry level to executive level, including career changers. I am focused on providing professional development options to inform, leveraging resources to empower, including networking and marketing skills to have an impact on the pursuit of a meaningful career path. My passion is career education and management, career consultation, and the pursuit of enabling clients to find fulfilling careers instead of simply filling jobs.

  • It takes a plan, a network, and resiliency to compete in today's job market.

  • The "World of Work"​ will change, the competition will change, individuals will change; therefore, learn by doing, adapt career plans, and pursue flexibility.

  • Given today's ever-changing job market, individuals need to fully explore a variety of educational and career options which are consistent with their skills, interests, and values.

  • I offer the “tools” to enable clients to discover their own strengths, abilities, and motivation that lead to a successful career path.

  • I provide effective, industry specific career management resources.
