Hi, I’m Heather Armstrong, Owner of Career Design.  I am passionate about purpose and passionate about helping you discover your whyMy goal is to dig in with you and help you discover how to get hired for being you. It hurts my heart to hear people say that they are stuck, de-valued, or don’t even know what they want to do “when they grow up.” You deserve to find work that makes you feel alive! I primarily work with:

  • Mid-Career Changers
  • High School Students
  • Middle School Students

I work with clients of all ages, from students to seasoned professionals. I especially love supporting clients with anxiety and other unique considerations.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
— Steve Jobs



After 20 successful years in marketing/advertising, I still felt lost in my career. I took a leap and left my career to find what was next for me. The day I met Dr. Helen Harkness, founder of Career Design, is a day that I will never forget. I felt as if I was meant to be right at her house in that exact moment in order to fulfill a dream. I now know why. I was meant to do this work. I am passionate about purpose. I am passionate about connecting people to their “why”! I used to only apply this to companies and brands, but Helen’s in-depth researched methods now allow me to apply this to people. It is important to me to continue sharing her magic. I will never replace Helen but my goal is to keep her legacy alive through continuing Career Design with the same heart and passion that she has for helping individuals find their “why” and translating that meaning magnet info a fulfilling career.
