Thank you!


I recently completed Clinical Neuropsychology Predoctoral Coursework from Roosevelt University. In addition, the past five years, I’ve worked as a staffing then in-house recruiter and have interviewed and placed 100+ candidates. Also, I’ve conducted interview preparation for 20+ candidates to interview for roles at places like VML, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Google. At Experis, I was consistently ranked in the top 15% of the 400 Experis Recruiters nationwide.

Professional background

I help driven men and women grow their careers and reach their desired goals.

How I work

The first call, I listen and understand your story and what you're trying to solve or what goal you'd like to achieve. Together, we prioritize the list and focus on the item that is both important and urgent. Throughout our sessions together we work through each problem/opportunity. Through working with me you'll learn how to trust yourself, set and achieve goals, and create habits that last a lifetime.

Why hire a career coach?

The past five years I've hired 100+ people. Through this, I've been able to discern why some people get hired while others don't. My goal is to help you to manage your mind while interviewing (it can be scary!) and create career goals and achieve them.
