I'm showing off my hometown - Charlotte, NC (CLT)

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

I went from recruiters ignoring me to doubling my salary in 18 months.

I’m a mechanical engineer turned bank analyst turned Cloud Architect and now program manager for a top tech company in just the past few years. I navigated my career transitions and negotiated my way to more than doubling my salary in just 18 months.

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 playing the violin with my daughter on the piano or planning the next trip with my husband. Several days a week, you’ll find me on the tennis court and most nights before bed, you’ll find me reading another book from the library.

If you’re dying to know more, here are a few things you don’t know 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

And if you still want to know more…
