Past clients who transformed their careers after working with me
After an unexpected layoff, I found myself drowning in the foreign world of Resumes, LinkedIn Profiles and HR. As an Engineer, my expertise lies in having deep technical knowledge, not in the proper structure of a resume summary statement. Katherine was the first person I thought of to help me navigate through this situation. I had met Katherine a year prior when going through a company sponsored career transition workshop. Katherine was the first career coach I felt comfortable working with. I was looking for someone I could easily work with, but also who had a solid grasp of the intricacies of searching for a new career opportunity. Katherine is attentive, thoughtful and very easy to talk to. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to make a change in their career and would like an expert to coach them through the process.

Katherine helped me through every stage of application and interviews. We went over my resume and she recommended many changes which gave it a better flow and made it more visually appealing. She helped me with behavioral questions and conducted a mock interview for me, after which she gave me multiple simple and actionable feedback. When I told her that I needed some help with mock technical interviews, she went out of her way to dig up meetups and other interview prep sources near my location. She really exceeded expectations on this one. She gave me good tips on leveraging Linkedin to find jobs and was always there with good advice through the highs and lows of my job search.

Katherine was there to guide my thoughts and encourage me to explore my passions and interests in ways that I would have been too afraid to do only by myself. Working with her has been like having a personal ally to really challenge the assumptions and constraints that I was placing on myself. The real magic is that I was doing the work and figuring out what it is I wanted to do; Katherine was my constant cheerleader and advocate while I processed the change in my life. Now, I am well on my way to starting my own business building on my knowledge, life experience, and personal values. While it is definitely a challenge, Katherine is still there to help me reframe my perceived obstacles as opportunities for success. Now, I feel energized because I am pursuing something I am passionate about. If you are looking to make a career change or facing similar challenges, I highly recommend working with Katherine.
