CAREER JUMPSTART PROGRAM 2023! 
SIGN UP TODAY

Looking to finally upgrade your career in the new year?

2022 has completely redefined how we approach our careers. From quiet quitting to unionizing, employees have moved, quit, and changed roles at unprecedented rates over the last year.

But what about those of us who are kind of stuck? Those of us who are a bit fearful to jump out there and make a change in light of uncertainty? What if you’ve had it with your toxic workplace, but are using the “better to stay with the drama we know” mentality to stay put? What if you just don’t know exactly how to move on, up, or out?

If ANY of these points resonate with you, then my New Year New Career Jump Start Program is exactly what you need.

ABOUT ME

I'm a Christian, wife, mom, and Doodle mom, living in the Metro Washington DC area.  Originally from Detroit, I'm a proud graduate of Clark Atlanta University and Michigan State University.  

I've had my fair share of job success at major Fortune 500 companies, but also: drama: layoffs, frustrating searches, working in cultures that were not a fit for me, being "the only" in the department, zero upward mobility, being underpaid, and lots more.  Over a 20+ year career, I've definitely experienced "career trauma." 


But today, I'm in a CAREER I love and get to help others figure out exactly how to get there.  Let me help YOU. 


With 20+ years of corporate and non-profit Human Resources and Recruiting experience in multiple Fortune 500 companies, I've coached managers, teams, and individuals to make their roles better and transition to successful roles and dream companies.  I understand the behind scenes processes of organizations to provide you specific action with results.

I provide the insight you need to find the career you want not just the job you tolerate.
