About Me

As a Leadership Career Consultant, I help leaders grow professionally, become their best selves at work and unlock their full potential. Whether you are looking to advance in your career or fine-tune your leadership skills, I will work with you to address your most pressing concerns and develop actionable strategies to achieve your career objectives. Throughout my career, I have coached hundreds of leaders across a broad range of industries, helping individuals zero in on the most critical development priorities, realize marked performance improvement and experience a renewed sense of focus and confidence in their careers. While each woman faces her own set of unique challenges, most of my coaching work centers around helping clients strengthen leadership competencies and address common development issues: • Improving managerial effectiveness • Deepening stakeholder relationships and influencing up, down and across the organization • Fine-tuning and flexing interpersonal and leadership styles • Heightening leadership profile, executive presence and organizational influence • Sharpening presentation and communication skills • Managing competing work demands Prior to launching my own executive coaching and resume writing practice, Career Certain, in 2010, I spent more than thirteen years in a corporate environment leading the Talent Management and Organizational Development functions for Macy’s, 3 Day Blinds, and The Children’s Place. I bring a fresh, insider’s perspective to my coaching work, as I am fully attuned to what it takes to truly stand out, advance and realize success in leadership roles. I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Psychology from Hunter College in NYC and earned credentials in leadership competency modeling, 360-degree feedback, professional resume writing and training facilitation.

Owning your development and taking targeted action are key to career success.
