About Me

I believe you should have a fulfilling career that is aligned with your values, interests, personality, and skills. As a coaching client, my goal is to help you find just that by creating a vision for your future and an action plan to help get you there. Hire me to help find your fit and best present yourself on the job market so that you can make your next move and excel at work. Having worked in college career services for 6+ years, I have a wealth of information and experience guiding emerging professionals through the career exploration and job search process. During this time, I've conducted hundreds of workshops on professional development topics and coached hundreds of students through the college to career transition. I regularly interact with recruiters and HR professionals, keeping a pulse on hiring needs and trends. I currently spend my 9-5 life as a Career Coach at Stanford University. Prior to Stanford, I served in a similar role at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I'm an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coaching Federation. I hold a Master of Education from The College of William & Mary in Educational Policy, Planning, and Leadership and a BA in Communication from Virginia Tech. Before transitioning to higher education, I worked as an event planner and graphic designer.

Make a plan that allows for happenstance, letting your curiosity drive you forward.

Reviews

"Katherine was a huge help! While the answers to solve my life's mysteries weren't give (as expected!) - Katherine did an excellent job with guiding, questioning, and challenging me to find the answers. I walked away with homework and a new challenge. I look forward to our follow up!"

"Katherine's approach was extremely specific and clear. At first I wasn't comfortable with the type of open-ended questioning that was being used, as I initially wanted more directive given to me. I planned to have the session because I was feeling a bit lost and a little defeated. However, I understand why the approach is likely practiced that manner and over the course of the call I was able to relax and release and just dig deep for the answers. As a result, I walked away with specific steps to apply to the perspective I have in my career path. I also feel clearer about the results I have experienced to date and how I may be able to achieve better outcomes in the journey of my career change. I am grateful for the time I had with Katherine.

"Katherine was so lovely and easy to talk to! I was feeling very down and negative about a lack of movement in my job search over the past few months, and she helped me come up with some great new strategies for finding that dream job! We also looked over my resume and she gave me some really great advice about structure and format. I really appreciated all of her advice and I'm excited to put it into practice!"

"Great Session! Katherine was awesome. I often just need help getting a plan to paper and commitment on executing the plan and Katherine did that and more during our session. Katherine did a great job helping me define what I needed to do for my job search plan, defining what exactly success looks like, and putting timelines around the plan. Katherine also helped me plan for an upcoming informational interview (that went very well by the way) and how to approach a couple of irons currently in the fire. Looking forward to working with Katherine again soon! "

"Katherine was wonderful to work with! The session was very helpful in getting me on the right track professionally. She was very easy to talk to and understood my needs. My resume and LinkedIn profile look great, and have given me confidence in my current job search. Would definitely work with Katherine again! "

"Katherine is wonderful to work with! She is great at help with more tactical skills like resumes, cover letters, and interviewing skills, and she also does a great job with more abstract questions. Instead of telling me what to do based on her opinions, she guided me to work through my own ideas and opinions to come to some conclusions and attainable next steps that felt empowering and were easy to accomplish."

"Katherine is a pleasure to work with and an excellent coach! We updated my resume and LinkedIn profile, both which look drastically more complete and professional. I did not know how to express my job experiences in a way that sold myself. Katherine helped me achieve the confidence to give my resume to any hiring manager or company. I'm looking forward working with her again to further my professional development. "
