Career and Job Search Coach

As a Career and Job Search Coach, my passion is helping people be successful in every aspect of their career. If you are ready to make a career change, are in the midst of a job search, are thinking about starting your own business, or are ready to take your career to the next level, I’m here and ready to help. 

My coaching career started more than 20 years ago when I earned a BS in Business Management from Northeastern University and entered the field of Human Resources. For the next 20 years, I held HR leadership roles at such pioneering companies as Lotus Development, 3Com Corporation and Data General. Besides working in high technology, I also spent time in healthcare and academia, and most recently, took part in the dot.com boom, directing the HR function for an internet start-up and hiring more than 450 employees in less than 2 years!

Throughout my career I’ve coached hundreds of employees on their careers, their leadership abilities, their resumes, their interviewing skills, and the challenges they’ve faced both on and off the job. I’ve read thousands of resumes and interviewed and hired literally hundreds of employees. My greatest joy and most significant contributions have come from the coaching and support I’ve given to people on their road to success… whether it be during the hiring process, while they were employed, as they were transitioning to new opportunities, or as they were committed to achieving major goals in their careers and their lives.

After 20 years in the corporate world, I decided to transform my own career and pursue a long held dream of starting my own business. Becoming a Career Coach was a natural progression from my years in Human Resources – now, instead of helping corporations succeed, I’m able to follow my true passion and do what I do best, which is help PEOPLE succeed. Having an in-depth knowledge of the business world and a unique “behind the scenes” perspective of the hiring process allows me to share critical insights with clients not available to many. And because I have personally enjoyed the hard work and excitement that go into transforming my own career, I am now able to coach clients on their own path to self-discovery and success.

To ensure my clients receive the best coaching possible, I currently hold the following credentials:

Certified Job and Career Transition Coach (JCTC)
Certified Career Management Coach (CCMC)
Certified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
Certified to administer and interpret the Strong Interest Inventory (SII)

In addition, I am enrolled at the Graduate School of Coaching and maintain an active membership in the following professional organizations:

Career Master’s Institute
International Coach Federation
International Association of Coaches
National Resume Writer’s Association
Career Counselor’s Consortium of New England
