About Me

Hello! I believe your career is not only an opportunity to earn a satisfying paycheck and achieve personal success but a place to flex and discover your best self. Mentors helped me navigate difficult situations in the workplace, land promotions and continuously refine a career that allows me to be creative, inspire, lead and learn. I have my MBA from NYU Stern School of Business where I focused on Strategy and Management while launching a bridal pop-up shop in New York City (and working full-time!). I have a range of experience working at start-ups and now a huge corporation like Google. I've excelled in sales, business development, digital marketing, strategy and operational roles and I have a special place in my heart for entrepreneurs. My working style is flexible. I can prepare a step-by-step plan to help you navigate your career journey or help you think through a specific career situation. Here are some additional items that might be helpful to you as well: - Resume Review - Networking Strategy - Personal Branding Development - LinkedIn Optimization - Career Conversation - Interview Prep - Job Search Strategy - Career Exploration

Shoulda. Woulda. Coulda. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

Reviews

"I think I had million of conversations, read maybe 20 career guide books, paid 2 different career counselling sessions with professionals before - but I have to say Kara was the first one that really hit the nail on the head. Absolutely brilliant. Super grateful! Can highly recommend to book in an advice session with her! "

"The mentor sessions with Kara covered everything in her customer notes! I couldn't believe how helpful she was in regards to listening to my issues, understanding my thoughts, and helping me put it on paper to update my resume, elevator pitch, and interview prep! I know this will be a long standing relationship with Kara. She is awesome! Thank you again for your advice and "therapy sessions"! "

"Talking to Kara was like a breath of fresh air! She is really open and helps you navigate some of the challenges you may be having within your career (and life in general)! I was able to talk through some of the obstacles keeping me from achieving my career goals and by walking me through her own experiences, Kara was able to guide me in making an actionable plan to help me move towards my next step. She did a great job of providing constructive criticism and was just fun to talk to. The conversation which made me feel really nervous at first, went really well. I felt like I was talking to an old friend. Highly recommend!"

"Kara was very helpful in helping me get focused again in my job. Although I have been at my current position for six years, and I was bored with it. Kara helped me set goals to help me get past internal and external obstacles. "
