As an executive career coach, I draw on 15 years of corporate experience and 20 years of career coaching.
I’ve successfully coached hundreds of professionals and executives through career transitions. I wrote The Aligned Career Workbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Landing Your Next Great Position. My coaching process includes assessing your strengths and interests, identifying your best-fit roles, preparing you for the job search, and assisting you with resume writing, networking, interviewing, negotiating and onboarding. I provide career transition services to organizations as well as working with leaders independently.
My career transition clients are senior leaders who either want to change jobs or find themselves recently out of a job. They are generally Director, VP or C-level leaders, across a broad range of professions and industries. Recent clients have been in Sales, Marketing, Operations, Business Development, Finance, General Counsel, and Engineering.

Guiding career transitions is not unlike guiding treks
When I’m not guiding executives through career transitions, I can be found periodically leading groups on a trek in the Annapurna range of Nepal. Guiding a career transition or leadership development program is actually a lot like guiding a trek in the Himalayas; it requires knowing the route thoroughly, providing all the necessary resources, being prepared for the unexpected and providing constant support along the way. Here’s our group in 2017, after watching the sun rise over the Himalayan range.
I take just as seriously my responsibility to those I coach on their career journey, that they reach their goal, and enjoy the journey as well!
