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.
