Professional background

Career Strategist/Coach

How I work

Cindy started her career in asset & wealth management as an Analyst. She always had a passion for global impact, and most of her time outside of work was spent lending her leadership and expertise to various Non-profit UN organizations. Her coaching started as a hobby at first where she would help people she knew land amazing jobs. Her high success rate led her to realize that at the intersection of her strengths and her passion for impact lied her true passion to be a Career Coach.

    Cindy has not only been my career coach but a mentor as well. I became her client while finishing up graduate school and had no sense of direction as it pertains to my degree/career. Thanks to Cindy, I was able to figure out the initial steps on navigating my career path and overcoming many obstacles and I am currently working for an organization which is directly in my field. Not only did Cindy help me to look good on paper, by helping me with my resume, job applications and so on, but also she instilled in me a sense of confidence that I carry with me which has already opened many doors. Cindy always found the time to assist me, whether it be face-to-face or virtually, no matter what she was doing which proves even more her dedication to her clients. I am grateful for Cindy and all that she has done for me and know that she will continue to guide others into the direction they are supposed to be in.

    Cindy recently helped me revamp my resume and LinkedIn profile and throughout the entire process remained the ultmate professional. The past few weeks have been stressful for all of us, but Cindy remained steadfast in respecting the timeline that she laid out at the beginning. After our call where she asked me very pertinent questions about my career aspirations, she was able to encourage me to showcase my accompishments in addition to my duties and responsibilities for each position. Overall, this process was extremely helpful and I would highly recommend Cindy to anyone looking to improve their resumes and professional online profiles
