Client Testimonials

"Your support through my career transition was invaluable. My coach's guidance allowed me to remain calm and focus on what was most important as I explored options for my next career move. This was the first time in my life that I had to “look” for a job and I felt totally lost and confused by the process. Relying on the expertise of a professional to help guide me on my career/job search path was key. My coach was a great resource and the information and encouragement that she provided helped me to confidently prepare for an effective career/job search.”

"Angela is a very gifted career/life coach. I immediately felt comfortable with her and knew she had my best interest at all times. She challenged and encouraged me through my re-entry and launch into full-time work after working part-time from home for eight years while taking care of my young children. She delivered exceptional feedback, materials and resources on updating my resume, networking and successful interviewing. More importantly, I received advice and encouragement to challenge my perspective and push myself to truly discover what makes me happy. Angela was also very helpful in holding me accountable, helping me set goals and implementing strategies to enhance life balance."
