My work with you is personalized and tailored to fit your specific needs. I come alongside and walk through the trenches with you, provide tools, brainstorm with you, hold you accountable, challenge you, and cheer you on. I have been through numerous career changes and have ridden the rollercoaster ride involved in starting new companies. In my work, I blend the “head” and the “heart”. Without practical tools and plans, dreams never get take-off. And without dreams, the heart stays heavy. Come and let’s transform your dream into a viable career!
