HOW I GOT HERE

I know first hand what it’s like being in the wrong career. I spent years marketing and branding a variety of companies, including several Fortune 500 clients. While I found great success, it never felt right. For years I told myself things like: “I must be at the wrong company”  “It’s just this project”  “But I love my co-workers” and “At least it pays the bills.” These words were sufficient band-aids at first — but soon, I could no longer ignore the feeling that there must be more.

In 2016, I began a journey of discovering what was next for me. I took online classes, attended Marsha Clark & Associates Power of Self E.I. Leadership Program, and finally — took a Career Transition Course with Heather Armstrong. When I began telling my friends that I was changing career paths, I was shocked that the vast majority wanted to change jobs or careers, too. For most, the thought of transitioning careers felt overwhelming or even impossible, which is why they hadn’t done it. I began using my branding and marketing skills to help a few friends re-vamp their career brand. When doing this work I felt energized, hopeful and in the exact right spotI feel an overwhelming sense of purpose and a calling to help people transition to jobs and careers they love.
