Engaging in career coaching can be both rewarding and motivating towards identifying goals and getting "un-stuck" in a job search. In working with clients, I begin by evaluating career values. From there, we connect the dots between the resume, career ideas and the search process to develop tangible goals towards progress. Depending on clients' needs, I am happy to tailor the sessions to short-term and long-term goals. Time after time, I have witnessed how this process builds momentum and confidence towards meaningful change.
My professional background is in collegiate career advising for various colleges and universities. Most recently from 2018-2020, I advised undergraduate and graduate students as a career adviser within Princeton University's Center for Career Development. In 2013, I launched For the Love of Work while at home with my young children as a way to stay connected with a career I love and to support individuals in my community with their resumes and job searches.
I am an empath and a highly sensitive person (HSP) who is attuned to the nuanced needs of each client, and cherishes the diversity of gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, range of abilities, sexual orientation, financial means, and education.
I believe that even small acts of kindness can shine light in this world, and enjoy networking to build diverse and inclusive communities, and more broadly, humanity. My formal education includes a BA in Psychology/Spanish from Vanderbilt University, and an M.Ed. in Higher Education Management from the University of Pittsburgh.
Identifying your goals and supporting the process towards achieving them is at the heart of my work as a career coach. I believe that we are all lifelong learners who can gain so much through listening to and learning from one another if we pause and make both space and time. I believe that the path to progress and change involves taking inventory of your values, personality, interests, skills, and goals, followed by connecting the dots to clarify your narrative and share your story,
I am not a one-size-fits-all practitioner and value the fact that your journey is unique. The act of simply reaching out to ask for help is courageous, brave, and a true act of self-care.
