Pursuing fulfilling work is one of the best decisions you can make in life.
Making a major career change can be a challenging, scary and a lonely journey. Having gone through five successful major career transitions myself, I know what it feels like. And I also know this; it’s absolutely worth it. Staying in a job that does not light you up, for years and years, is not only soul crushing but mentally, emotionally and even physically unhealthy. That is not a good way to live.
That is why I've made it my mission to help people like you find their Ideal Career.

In each session, I draw on my twenty years of experience as a corporate executive, having hired over 500 employees, managers and executives, and over a decade of coaching and consulting experience, to help you take practical steps to smoothly transition to a new more fitting career in the most effective way possible.
