Career Strategy Coaching for Women
Tired of Settling for Work
that Does Not Fulfill Them

I provide the tools to help you get clear on your career path, know your value and not settle for less.

We work with aspiring women leaders frustrated with their careers. They feel stuck at their jobs and are not sure how to navigate through their workplace challenges.

Your landing on this website tells me you sense there has to be more than where you are now in your career. You want more and you’re willing to leave your comfort zone to live in your purpose and achieve your dreams. But you’re not willing to sacrifice who you are, your values or your family to get there.

I have good news for you because there is no better time than now to pursue your career goals. The numbers are in: Having women in positions of leadership and on boards helps increase a company’s bottom line.*  However, research also shows that women underestimate their skills and performance and have self-doubt.**

I’m sounding the alarm:

You are qualified!

You are uniquely and wonderfully made for a specific purpose. With your abilities, skills, and personality, you are a blessing to others in a way that only you can. This is your power.

Enjoy the fruits of your labor. It’s your gift from God! So if you dread your work, it’s a signal that something is out of place.

Here's my story...

My career stalled.

I listened to the noise about my limits as a black female, as a mother, as someone who did not know the game. I followed the advice of others (many who had good intentions) on what was best for me and put me in a box, which was not who I really was.

I worked at jobs that did not utilize my strengths. I was passed over for positions where I was more than qualified and given to someone who did not meet the minimum requirements of the job. Many times, I was afraid I would lose my job when I had to stay at home from work when my kids were ill.

That's when everything changed.

I was anxious about turning down an opportunity to appear on a television show.

Upset, I was trying to figure out why I was sabotaging myself. Later that evening, while cooking dinner, I had the television on in the background. A woman shared her story about feeling sorry for
herself.

“You can be pitiful or powerful, but you can’t be both.”

That was my “Aha.” I will never achieve my purpose if I sit on the sidelines instead of getting into the game. With the support of my inner circle, I pushed through my fears and began living my purpose.

I want the same for you.
