Kathy's extensive experience in a wide variety of industries including education, high-tech, and non-profit has been a benefit to many clients. Here are some testimonials from just a few.

Before I went to Kathy, I was at a total loss as to what I wanted to do with my life. I had been in a career for nearly 12 years, but it just was not fulfilling to me. I thought that there was no other field of work I could go as my skills and education were so specialized. After spending many weeks with Kathy, I realized that I had a great deal of transferable skills and hidden interests. When those were brought out, it opened up a whole new world to me. I am now more excited than ever to be embarking on a completely new career. Kathy really made me think through everything…it was a process that was so valuable in helping me become happy in my new career. Thank you so much Kathy!

Last fall I was profoundly unhappy at work and looking for help to find a new direction to pursue, either for a near-term career change or an encore career. As a woman in my mid-fifties, I had been very happy all my life with my career and my workplace until very recently. I wanted to recapture that enthusiasm and satisfaction I used to enjoy. I found Kathy’s web site, read her explanations of career counseling and her particular approach, and decided to give it a try. Am I glad I did! Over the course of three months I got exactly what I needed. The assessments that Kathy helped me conduct of my skills, interests, values and personality were eye-opening and fun, too. Then Kathy pulled it all together and helped me identify several new career directions to explore. To help me do this, she pointed me to resources I probably would not have found on my own. By January I had a clear direction and plan of action, and was well on my way to preparing for my new career. I’ll be at my current job a while longer, but I am already happier, knowing I am taking steps towards my new work life. Kathy’s expertise, knowledge and caring supported me all the way, and made the process dramatically shorter and clearer than would have been possible on my own. Well worth the time and money!

Working with Kathy was a wonderful experience. She is extremely knowledgeable about the tools and resources available to help in your journey. Kathy makes you feel comfortable and at ease the moment you meet her. You can be honest and open about your hopes and dreams - there is no judgment. She is as excited about your journey as you are. I highly recommend Kathy to be your guide as you search for a new career. 

Kathy helped me to create my resume. My new and improve resume has a very appealing and professional look. Kathy also coached me on how to handle tough interview questions and how to improve my job search strategies.

During our counseling sessions, Kathy helped me to realize how much I have accomplished in my professional career. This gave me a great sense of confidence and achievement.

I would definitely recommend Kathy to any one who needs career counseling or help with resumes writing. She possesses intelligence, great counseling skills, and sunny outlook on life. I am very grateful to have her in my life as a wonderful career counselor.
