I’ve spent close to the last 10 years providing career counseling to people of all ages and backgrounds, and can sincerely say that I found my true passion. At the heart of our work together is you; I use a person-centered approach to coaching and am incredibly passionate about helping people move towards achieving career satisfaction. Many times, exploring a new career path or moving forward with trying to land a position in a chosen career field falls at the bottom of the to-do list. Sometimes this happens because people are busy, and other times it's because the process seems too daunting. Using a goal-oriented approach, I hold people accountable so they can move from feeling stuck to feeling productive and having momentum in their process.
Education/Certifications: Master of Science, Applied Educational Psychology, Northeastern University; Bachelor of Arts, Psychology; Minor in Spanish, Villanova University; Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Certified; 200-HR Certified Yoga Instructor; Certificate in Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching.
Types Of Clients: Anyone from college students trying to navigate finding their passion to experienced professionals looking to change jobs or careers.
Favorite Part About My Job: Empowering people to achieve their personal and professional goals. It’s incredibly rewarding to be a part of their journey towards living a fulfilling life.
Steadfast Do's and Don'ts: Do's: Examine your values, interests, personality preferences, and skill sets, and how these align with career paths. Trust your gut. Ask for help. Don'ts: Don't show up for others and not for yourself. Don’t stop setting new goals once you’ve reached your old ones. Don’t forget to breathe!
Most important qualities of a good leader: A good leader listens and thinks before reacting, uses a collaborative approach to learn before making decisions, and is open to feedback.
My Advice for women starting their careers: Don’t be paralyzed by the first step! Your first job doesn’t have to be your everything. Manage your expectations of yourself and know that you still have so much to learn, so don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Advice I wish I'd had (or had followed): Never underestimate the power of slowing down and checking in with yourself.
Quote I live By: “To laugh often & much… To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better… To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
