Certified Job and Career Transition Coach and Certified Professional Resume Writer
Before becoming a career transition and job search consultant and coach, I worked for several years in nonprofit and association space in publishing, marketing, and fundraising communications. There were many times I felt stuck in an unfulfilling job or in a crazy work environment that undermined my confidence and prevented me from making the contribution I wanted to make. Fortunately, I learned how to figure out what career satisfaction meant to me and was able to proactively and strategically make several career pivots and job changes to land more satisfying work.
I absolutely love the variety in the nonprofit space and throughout my 20+ year nonprofit communications career enjoyed working for a major university, a leading human services charitable nonprofit, a food-industry trade association, and professional societies in the medical and human resources industries.
I've been honored to help several executives make satisfying transitions and have written and presented on career transition and job search topics for ASAE's Association Headquarters. I was also recently honored to have a career change resume I wrote for an executive looking to move into more mission-driven work featured in the latest edition of Resumes for Dummies.
