Houston

If you're a stay-at-home mom trying to re-enter the workforce, the odds are stacked against you … I’d like to change that.

After a decade in the corporate world, I began my coaching journey in 2008 helping others find careers they connected to and could excel at in addition to doing some leadership coaching. I moved to the Philippines and China on expat assignments with my husband, had 2 kids, and decided to focus on being a mom while coaching on the side. We moved to Houston in 2013. Over all these years, I met so many other parents, mostly women, who were transitioning from high-powered careers to expat spouse and/or mother. After “opting out” of the workforce for a few years to devote to their children, many of these women were now ready to get back to paid work but found that they felt lost, isolated, and didn’t know where to start.

That’s why I decided to start Parents Pivot, where we help parents find careers they love after a career pause. Through 1-on-1 coaching, the THRIVE return to work program for individuals, targeted workshops on resumes, LinkedIn, and salary negotiation, facilitation, return to work programs, placement services, and onboarding coaching we help stay-at-home-parents tackle a lot of those fears and anxieties and position themselves better for the current job market. It’s incredible to see our clients transform into confident women who are able to carve out a new identity for themselves as working moms. That makes it all worth it!

Our signature program is the THRIVE Like a Mother return to work program for individuals. You will build CONFIDENCE in your professional skills, find CLARITY around job options or what’s next, and build CONNECTIONS with a COMMUNITY of other parents returning to paid work. Learn more about THRIVE in person and online programs here: https://www.parentspivot.com/group-coaching.

We also coach mothers in the workplace to help them find the work, life, leadership, and parenting blend for them, reduce stress, and show up as the leaders they want to be. Reach out to learn more about 1:1 and group coaching.

Parents Pivot also has a membership page . where you can fill out your job preferences and be contacted when we have job postings that fit your interests.

If you are an employer, then we can connect you to these talented parents, help you develop a return to work program, and provide onboarding or career transition coaching for employees returning to paid work. Click here Click here to learn more.

We are the bridge for talented parents returning to paid work in Houston! We would love to have you as part of our community!
