I know what it's like to lack clarity in my career, to struggle to find work and to feel overwhelmed with the job search process. That is why I am so passionate about helping women of color figure out the next steps in their career through self-reflection, vision setting and career strategy.

I was fresh out of graduate school and AmeriCorps service, and hit the ground running in the search for full time work. My outcomes?
100% rejection rate
The experience led to the development of an intense job application phobia. I feared sending resumes. I would dread redrafting yet another cover letter. For a year, just the thought of applying caused my body to tense. I was anxious, frustrated, and angry before the process even began.
The rejection had brought on feelings of inadequacy and self doubt. I asked myself…
What don’t employers see in me? Why don’t I stand out?
Fortunately, one of my friends referred me to a woman of color career coach. Right away, she highlighted my strengths, encouraged me to refocus my goals and helped me create a professional brand.
With a brand new resume and renewed inspiration, I made the bold step to move from Chicago to Boston to embark on a reflective journey that brought me to the epicenter of my own passions — career counseling.
I have now spent several years counseling students in various settings of higher learning. My experience ranges from supporting a 20 year old hone their interests to assisting a 66 year old transition to their second career.
I have guided hundreds on their career path. I have revamped countless resumes. From mock interviews to salary negotiations, I have coached the broad range of diverse career seekers. I cannot wait to implore my expertise, experiences, and holistic approach to your career journey.
