My focus is to help people to find fulfillment in their careers and I believe this is impossible without self-awareness. The Highlands Ability Battery is a great tool to help people gain self-awareness about their natural abilities.
My Mantra: #findyourwork, meaning everyone has a gift that needs to be shared with the world in the form of work that will leave a positive impact on all who experience it. Some have found their calling and love the work they do, but many people all over the world have not and are miserable at work. I want to help people like this to find work that brings them excitement each day.
I was once a part of the population that hated going to work so bad that I had anxiety about going back even as I exited the building for the weekend.
After changing my major in college 6 times and finally completing a degree in general studies, I was still lost. I was miserable as I went from job to job trying to find my niche. Luckily, I landed a job in youth development and quickly realized this was a good fit for me. My career transitioned to career development, outplacement, and workforce development. You can find out more about my career path here.
That miserable time in my life became my life’s mission, I wanted to help other people who were lost to find work that gave them excitement every day. Working with thousands of people in the field of career development for many years along with interviewing people who loved their work, led me to develop tools and activities that work in helping people to find direction.
As a Highlands Certified Consultant and Multi-Certified Strengths and Career Coach, I use practical tools like the Highlands Ability Battery, CliftonsStrengths Assessment, and years of coaching experience to help people find clarity and work that brings them fulfillment. Once a person has clarity, I can also work with them in the next steps whether it’s using my skills as a Certified Professional Resume Writer, business coaching, or finding a job by offering job search strategies, interview preparation, and salary negotiations.
