Are you ready to leave your
disengaging job and find a home at a company that actually values culture

The time is now. Life is just too short to hate your career.

What would you do if you didn't have to go into your soul-sucking job one more day? Would you be happier? Would your personal relationships flourish?  Would you have something to talk about....other than how much you hate your job?

Now imagine if you actually loved waking up in the morning because you couldn't WAIT to get to the office? Imagine if you had coworkers who supported you, you got paid what you're worth and there were tons of growth opportunities at your disposal. Imagine if you knew you days were limited at your soul-sucking job, because you had an escape plan in place to get you the heck outta there!?

Now that is something I can help with, friend.

Here's the deal though:

I only work with hungry, ambitious professionals who are ready to take action, seize control of their careers and actually believe that loving your job isn't a pipe dream - but an attainable reality. They are absolute rockstars who have an idea of what they want to do, but need help getting clarity on exactly what + crafting an aggressively proactive plan to get there. I help these champions leave disengaging jobs to find homes at companies who value culture, growth and flexibility.

Over the course of 8-12 weeks, I'll help you get clarity on your career trajectory, establish a customized plan to help you find the job, give you all the tools and resources to market to the job, gain the confidence to land the job (and negotiate your salary!) and finally construct a personal framework for future growth & work-life balance in your new thriving career.

Due to the intimate nature of the program, there are limited spots to work with me by application only.

So, who am I and why do I care so much about helping you find a career that you love?

When I graduated from college, I was pretty puffed up about my career accomplishments. Before my senior year even started, I had landed a full-time offer at a bulge bracket investment bank, a job coveted by most of my fellow Finance major peers. I was moving to New York City, promised a handsome salary and getting exposure to some pretty important and successful people.

Living the life right?

Yeah, until I wasn’t.

Quite quickly I realized that that investment banking life was. not. for. me. I was working insane hours (like 80 hour workweeks, people), had no social life and my health was starting to deteriorate. I was a fraction of myself, zapped of all creativity and was barely surviving in a soul-sucking job. It didn’t matter how much money I was making, this was absolutely not worth it.

I wanted to find something I was passionate about! Somewhere I could actually use my gifts (which by the way, I had a hard time figuring out at first). For a company I could stand behind for their values and mission. And some mentorship and camaraderie with my coworkers.

Was I asking for too much?

No. No I wasn’t. And you aren’t either.

Think about it, the majority of our life is spent at work. In fact, the average person works 90,360 hours in their lifetime. 90,360 HOURS! That’s a lot of time to spend doing things you hate. Work was designed to be a good thing - fulfilling, challenging, life-giving. Why have we become a culture that accepts and believes the lie that you have to hate your job?

I refuse to believe it and you should too.

So after escaping my soul-sucking job, I was determined to find a career that I loved. I maneuvered some pretty major and minute career transitions, ultimately landing at a company and in a position that I thrived in. With every move, I ensured that I was always being propelled one step closer to my career goals.

I want that for you. I want you to get up every day excited to go to work. To love your coworkers. To feel like you have purpose and can provide (because Hey! making money doing work you love is just as important!) for yourself and your family. To be on fire for what your company is trying to accomplish. I’ll say it a million times over - I’m a firm believer that if people loved their jobs, there would be an unparalleled positive ripple effect in our communities, within relationships and for the good of our global economy and the Kingdom.

And at the same time, I also know what it’s like to go through the job search process. I tried all the typical job searching techniques - applying online, trying to comb through incredibly overwhelming job boards, hoping my resume was decent enough to garner the attention of someone who mattered at a company I was interested in working for. Honestly, I felt like I was beating my head against a wall.

So I threw in the towel and called it quits.

I decided that I was going to hack this whole job search thing to ensure that I had more control over the process. And you know what?

It worked.

I was able to pivot, grow and land multiple interviews and job offers.

And I want to teach you how to do it so that you too can thrive in your professional life.
