My past experience
20+ Years of Tech Industry Experience at Your Service
As a young professional, I had to navigate the dot-com bubble, the subsequent crash, and the volatile bear market that resulted. I started my first IT consulting job in early 1999 after earning my Master’s degree — and was laid off just before the holidays in 2000. Even though I quickly found another consulting job, I was laid off again 6 months later.
My competition had more experience than me, which meant I had to be smarter, faster, and more strategic if I wanted to pull ahead in the highly competitive tech industry.
For the next 19 years, I worked deep in the IT trenches wearing many hats: product manager, project manager, business analyst, tester, and developer. I started at the bottom and worked my way up to success, which means I’ve been in your shoes.
Along the way, I learned how to build relationships, seek roles that gave me the knowledge and experience I needed to increase my worth (and get paid accordingly for it), and problem-solve at a high level for a more effective team. Now, I apply everything I’ve learned to help professionals at all levels bolster their own careers — all while creating a balance that allows them to live (and enjoy!) both their life and work.
In 2014, I started my own coaching business to help other leaders follow my path to success, ditch the daily grind, and become the boss of their own flourishing careers. My strategic approach combines your goals with an industry-specific action plan that aligns with current and future market needs. The result? You radically increase your value, transform your work, and position yourself for success on your terms, whether that means exponential growth, better integrating your life and work, or trying something new with your career. growth.
