About Heather

Board Certified Coach | 2015 Outstanding Career Practitioner

Training for Career Coaches

Coaching for Executives and Senior Leaders

Support for Career Changers

As a Board Certified executive and career coach, author, speaker, consultant, and instructor – I have deep experience in the field of career and professional development. My goal is to provide high-quality professional development training for career coaches, executive coaching for professionals looking to advance in their careers, and career coaching to those seeking change in the world-of-work looking for direction during the transition.

I have worked with college students and recent graduates; mid-career professionals in transition; individuals looking for a complete career change; stay-at-home-parents re-entering the workforce; professionals interested in polishing their professional brand; and career coaches looking to perfect their coaching skills and increase their knowledge in the field.

In every coaching role I assume, I take a strengths-based coaching approach grounded in positive psychology, then tailored to provide support specifically related to your career and professional goals. If you are looking to move your career forward, I am interested in working with you to facilitate positive change based on your objectives.
