I have been there. After I returned to work from my second maternity leave work hadn’t changed – but I had. I kept having this feeling that “this wasn’t working” which soon turned into me dreading heading into the office. I was spinning and upset and felt like I was wasting all this precious time being upset.
So I did what I had done with so many others and I coached myself and made a plan. I am now in a career I love and am excited to help others do the same.
Send me a message so I can learn more about how I can help!

No, I work with mid to senior level women on career change and growth regardless if they have kids or not.
I have focused on mothers as having a kid can rock your career world. It is often a time when women feel overwhelmed and unsatisfied with their career. As a mom of 3 and a Career and Back to Work expert I get it. All of it.
Yes (of course there are instances of people switching to work with me on next steps like growing a business!) You will leave each session with action plans and to do lists to keep the momentum going through the week. If you need me or get stuck I am there to help you.
I know that there are lots of places out there that will work with you for 6 months or a year to slowly create change but….haven’t you been waiting long enough already?
Career Coaching does require a commitment from you. Your success is dependent on you being open to change, new ideas and trying things out. You will need to have the time, energy and commitment to make a change in your life! There are action items and homework to be done in between sessions so I suggest blocking out some time to devote to this process.
Honestly, if you knew that you wanted to be..say a nurse then you wouldn’t be here! You would be off becoming a nurse. I always say that I don’t need you to know what you want to do but I do need you to be clear on what you DO NOT want to do!
Nope. But if this is important to you I can send you some links of places to have this done for free.
When you work with me – I don’t really care what colour your management style is. I care about how your work fits into your life, what makes you light up and creating work that work for you.
No you don’t and in fact less than 20% of people can ever define a single passion in their life. This comes up so often that I wrote a whole piece about it. Check it out here.
