Let's write your career story.
Everyone has a career story. Just like a good book, your story is interlaced with obstacles and victories, characters that come and go, and a driving theme. While in the midst of your day-to-day grind, it is easy to overlook the strengths you bring to the table, times where you are your "best" (gain energy) and the path to connect your purpose with how you spend your 9 to 5. It is easy to forget that you are the writer. You have control over how the story is unfolding.
This is where I come in...think of me as your career editor. Let's partner to pull your most meaningful career moments into the light so you can move on to the fun part - planning your future.

Daydreaming about a better future
"NO ONE will care about your career goals as much as you. So why are you waiting for someone else to fix it?"
Does this sound familiar?
I don’t feel fulfilled.
I worked so hard to get here and now wonder if this is what I want.
Something is missing.
I will feel better about my job when things go back to “normal.”
I will pursue my passions outside of work.
I don’t want to “start over” in a new job or industry.
No one cares about your career more than you!
So why are you waiting for someone else to fix it?
The Career Edit Path
"Leah allowed me to focus my thinking on what matters to me and my career. Leah gave me the words to describe myself and my experience in ways I could not come up with on my own."
"She challenged me to think differently as a leader and guided me on how to be more confident in telling my story. "
"I thoroughly enjoyed the process and approach - it enabled me to focus on not only what I CAN do, but what I WANT to do. It boosted my confidence and made it clear to me where my value-add is for organizations and where to focus my job search."
"Leah helped me through a challenging time at work. She helped me explore my key professional strengths and translate that value to my LinkedIn profile. Getting ready to go on the job market again after being at the same company for over 10 years is scary - but I now feel like I can put my best foot forward."
"Leah has been a trusted advisor for more than a decade. She coached me through the thought processes to better define what job/position/title/responsibilities/benefits I WANTED. My calendar soon filled with interviews.
Enter Leah again. We discussed the prep work needed in advance of interviews, strategy during, and the follow-up . When I started salary and benefits negotiations, Leah advised on the art and science behind this critical point. I was able to confidently navigate negotiating salary, benefits and work environment I deserved and ultimately accepted the position. 4 years later, I am with the same company, have been promoted, and am grateful every day for my job."
"Her feedback and coaching gave me the momentum and confidence boost I needed to tackle updating my resume that hadn't been touched in many years. She was extremely responsive when I had an urgent need for feedback."
"I was able to see the value in the work that I had done in the past that I, perhaps, didn't give myself enough credit for or see how it could be applied to another line or work."
"I appreciated the very concrete information Leah shared about the goal of each interview and how to position myself against other candidates. The perspective she provided was really useful, as were tools like the personal SWOT analysis."
"I have turned to Leah for leadership coaching several times and I truly appreciate her consultative approach. She has proven to have invaluable expertise in many areas, including career development and negotiation strategy. Her ability to be a partner and help me feel confident in my decisions is why I highly recommend her services!"
"Leveraging a resume as a marketing document rather than a career summary was a big shift for me, and really changed the way I approached editing and maintaining my resume."
