I'm not exactly 40 but you get the picture!

I help women in tech grow their careers by landing better roles using my Career Makeover MBA.

If you’re feeling stuck in your career or just ready for  a different job, you know how frustrating the whole resume and interview process can be.  

That was me.  Overworked.  Underpaid.  Working constantly with nothing to show for it.  I was stuck but couldn’t figure a way out of my current career path.

Are you ready to jump start your career with the Career Makeover MBA? Find clarity with a personal Career Strategy Session.

I went from recruiters ignoring me to tripling my compensation in a few short years.

I’m a mechanical engineer turned bank analyst turned cloud architect turned mobile app Product Manager and now I’m retired from Corporate America. I navigated my career transitions to triple my total compensation in just a few years.

As more people heard my successful rebranding story, I kept getting asked to meet for coffee to “pick my brain.”  Friends started landing six-figure jobs based off the tips I shared with them. Now I share my process through coaching others. I’ll save you time, money, and effort as I teach you the path to rebrand and get hired faster.

And when I’m not doing the work thing…

I’m an empty nester and proud NC State parent. Go Wolfpack! I love philanthropy. I serve on my local Library Foundation Board of Directors and enjoy fundraising for local non-profits. 

For fun and fitness, you’ll often find me playing tennis and pickleball or enjoying yoga at the YMCA. I also spend a lot of time at the library. I love reading and listening to podcasts.

If you still want to know more, here are a few more things about me…

🧩 I read about 100 books a year. Yes, that’s about two books a week. I’m a huge local library supporter and read a mix of actual physical books in addition to the kindle and ebooks. Find me on Goodreads here.

🧩 I’m a Costco anything and everything person. I get my groceries, piano, car tires, sunglasses, and more from Costco just to name a few things. “Think Costco First!” (Costco’s motto).

🧩 I’m ruthless about protecting my time. I can always make more money but I can’t make more time. As someone that coaches others, I myself have hired a life coach, a career coach, personal trainer, and dietician. Even doctors have doctors. 

🧩 I love jigsaw puzzles. I try to have a 1500 or 2000 piece puzzle in progress at all times
