HER EXPERTISE: For two+ decades I've been in the trenches w/ creatives & marketers helping them break into, advance, and successfully pivot within design landscapes & disciplines.
HER CLIENTS: I work with design thinkers, UXers, creative directors, product designers + keen digital marketers who are EXCEPTIONAL at what they do but struggle to articulate their worth, while increasing the number of opportunities that are THE RIGHT FIT FOR THEM.
✔️ They can no longer tolerate being a victim to 20% of jobs posted online.
✔️ They believe their success and owning it rather than outsourcing it to a recruiter.
✔️ They’re clear that their credentials are not their potential.
✔️ They recognize that no job is worth the cost of feeling undervalued, underpaid, or under-challenged.
✔️ They’re done sending out resumes to an ATS robot and playing the wait & see game.
✔️ They struggle to articulate their personal brand across all touchpoints including in-person interviews.
WHAT MAKES HER DIFFERENT: I don’t teach theory. I teach a system based on measurable actions that lead to results.
