I know what it feels like to be lost and confused about a career direction. I am forever in debt to a coach who, in my senior year, supported me as I sought my purposeful work. I credit this coach with helping me discover not only a great career but a true calling.

I know what it feels like to be lost and confused about a career direction. I am forever in debt to a coach who, in my senior year, supported me as I sought my purposeful work. I credit this coach with helping me discover not only a great career but a true calling.

I have 30+ years of career coaching experience at a few of the best colleges and universities in the country. Some of my former students still check-in for advice when contemplating a career shift in for advice! I have been called an informal coach but an intense listener--listening to what you are and aren't saying. I'm direct, intuitive, and will likely push you to go deeper with some of the questions I'll ask. My coaching style, though theory-based, draws on storytelling, uses humor, and conveys a deep belief in each person’s ability to find a path that is true to their skills, interests, and values. You can count on me to partner with you to tackle the obstacles, including procrastination and timidity, blocking you from finding the work that you find purposeful and satisfying.

Here what two past students have to say: “I want to thank you…for your help with my job-search. Your clear-headed advice gave direction and a measure of sanity to an often-panicked process." (former client, now freelance translator in Germany) and “I appreciated your analysis, opinions, and advice regarding my current state of career flux. I just wanted to thank you for helping me out…I don’t know how many other people would have understood how I was feeling. I hope I will one day learn to listen like you do" (former client, now the owner of a communications company in MN).

I have worked in higher education my whole career. Starting off in residential life, I began to focus on career coaching in graduate school. I was recruited by top colleges to head up career centers--to develop strategic plans, re-design staffing structures, and increase the effectiveness of programs and services. Professionally I've consulted at or worked closely with dozens of universities. I’v
