My objective is to help my clients attain transformative change in their lives and careers in order to achieve greater success, fulfillment and overall wellbeing.

Work accounts for such a great portion of your life, feeling fulfilled by that work has a profound impact. Discovering your best career fit allows you to experience less stress and a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment.

In your work with me, you can choose to take the Highlands Ability Battery in two ways:

1. Engage in our individualized and comprehensive Career Discovery process. This includes the Highlands Ability Battery as well as additional in-depth exploration, guidance and support to identify your best career fit. With this process, you will be able to articulate what you want and why.

2. Complete the Highlands Ability Battery on its own and then have a debrief with me. You can always choose to engage in our JMA services afterwards.

Either way, when our work together comes to an end, you will have much greater clarity, focus and a new found confidence in your ability to move forward in a career that you love.



I began my career as a professional photographer and later transitioned to a career as an entrepreneur. As owner of Henry Moss Ltd., I founded, created and developed a unique retail concept for a high-end general store and gourmet food market. My experiences as an entrepreneur were featured in the book “A Shop of One’s Own: Women Who Turned the Dream Into Reality.”

I also served as Director of Operations for Treacy Marketing Group where I led all aspects of business operations, including HR, legal and accounting.

As a coach, I was selected by Jody Michael, founder and CEO of Jody Michael Associates, from a competitive pool of applicants; I have served as lead Career Coach and an integral part of the JMA team since 2011.

Education and Certifications


I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. My coaching distinctions include Highlands Certified Consultant, JMA Career Coach Certification, and a Health and Wellness Coaching Certification through Wellcoaches School of Coaching
