Career Coach

Creating meaningful careers by design

“You’ve had such a varied and impressive career. It’s awesome to read about your adventures and reinventions and how you’re now helping others do the same,” branding expert Dorie Clark, contributor to Harvard Business Review, Entrepreneur, Forbes and author of Entrepreneurial You, Reinventing You, and Stand Out (#1 Leadership Book by Inc. and one of the Top 10 Business Books of the Year by Forbes).
