Known to my clients as "The Job Search Makeover Coach," I am a kick-butt trainer, nurturing “job sage” and passionate about helping my clients move mountains in their job search.
As President of Aspire! Empower! Career Strategy Group, a Guild Certified Five O'Clock Club Career Coach, award-winning
résumé writer, enthusiastic speaker, social media addict, and devoted
networker with 12+ years’ HR experience at Fortune 100 companies, I
remain committed to helping HIGH-ACHIEVING, MID-CAREER, CORPORATE
professionals and executives find work that fires them up!
I like to say that I was "born and raised professionally at Disney" so I have the Disney spunk and customer service mentality in my blood. After receiving my first promotion out of polyester, I recruited nationwide for the Walt Disney World College Program and led the recruitment and staffing efforts for Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach water parks.
At America Online, Inc. I designed and launched AOL's college internship program and coached hundreds of employees—from entry-level to executive—on how to fit in, stand out, and move up in the company and in their careers!
In addition to a Master of Labor Relations and Human Resource Management Degree from Michigan State University, I am the proud owner of the following certifications: Certified Expert Resume Writer, Credentialed Career Manager, Job and Career Transition Coach, and Certified Networking Coach with Contacts Count. My easy-to-implement approach has garnered attention from such national news media as The Washington Post, U.S. News & World Report, Chicago Tribune, Monster.com, Careerealism.com, and Aol., to name a few.
But, above all else, I feel that it is my generous and grateful spirit that allows me to be the advocate I am for my clients... and I believe, without a doubt, that there is MORE than enough pie to go around for everyone!
