MY STORY:

Before becoming a career coach, I struggled with my own career journey.

After graduating from college I found myself with a degree and a crippling amount of student loans. I took the first steady job I could find that would get me to Portland, OR. I spent 5 years working in the finance industry and HATED it. I loved my coworkers, had a very promising career trajectory in front of me, and was constantly challenged, but I wasn't helping people in a way that made me fulfilled. I felt like I had to make a choice between success and passion. It was the toughest decision I ever made to walk away from the "success". I then submitted over 250 job applications to find a job that ultimately led me to the path of career coaching! 

Yes, you read that right...over 250 job applications.

I had hit a wall. I knew I wanted out and then it became a goal to get out as fast as possible. The problem with this approach was that I was applying to everything under the sun and those applications went double time after a bad work week. It was a downward spiral that was leading me to jobs and offers I didn't want. It wasn't until I slowed down, examined my values, and created a plan to explore all of my options that I found my perfect role in human resources. I spent 2 years working in the sportswear industry as a HR project manager. This role was dynamic, challenging, and most of all allowed me to mentor others in the company. I loved coming to work on days where I spent time working on social purpose initiatives, coaching others, facilitating trainings, and providing support to colleagues as they tackled new challenges. As my job grew it became more data and operations focused so I decided to step full time into running my own businesses and following my passion as a career coach!
