I am passionate about the career development process and the potential to create a career that is an expression of one’s self-concept.  I truly enjoy helping clients make intentional decisions about their educational and professional plans.  An understanding of one’s strengths, personal style, values, skills, and interests is critical to the decision-making process. Using  formal and informal assessments in combination with an in-depth interview and consultation, I work with students, adults, and teams to cultivate self-awareness and apply this information to their educational and professional development.
I spent many years working in university academic advising centers where I guided students in their degree and career planning. In 2015, I co-founded Aplomb Consultants to more comprehensively facilitate career development for students, 
adults, and teams.  To further my mission, I also teach a student development course for new community college students.
