I am a career coach. And because I believe a holistic approach is necessary to bring about meaningful change, I work to better understand what motivates and inspires you, both in your career and in your life. Expect lots of discovery relative to the unexpected including topics outside of your typical day to day work experience. The two are not mutually exclusive.
What I Do
Help you remember!
Too often, we live and work in environments that are in the least challenging, and in the worst soul-crushing.
My goal is to help you remember what inspires you, all that you have already accomplished, with the goal of maximizing your potential.
What inspires you? What works? What doesn't? What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? What needs to change? Where and when were you most successful? What have you accomplished? How do we get more of that?
Then we delve into a plan for incremental change, creating a way forward!
My professional career in corporate America did not start until my early thirties. While working as a bartender in New York City, I was approached to work on the launch team of OUT magazine, and subsequently spent the better part of twenty-five years in executive management, primarily at Conde Nast. I worked on the leadership teams of several iconic brands in the publishing and technology start-up space, including VOGUE and Vanity Fair and more recently, consulting for PILOT, a career coaching technology that helps companies maximize employee potential.
My entrepreneurial itch has been scratched several times, not only working on the launch of several start-ups, but also as the co-owner of a canine rehabilitation and training center in NYC in the mid-aughts called The Dog Run. So yes, I have worked with both two-legged and four-legged individuals.
It is through my work in leadership that I was inspired to take the veritable plunge into professional coaching, getting my diploma from NYU's School of Professional Studies in Management.
I wanted to do more of what I had been most successful at; identifying talent, encouraging and mentoring teams to success, and helping individuals become better leaders.
