Ready for Professional Consulting Assistance? I’d be delighted to offer you a free 30-minute consultation to crystallize your vision for your company or organization.
I have 15+ years of successful experience as a comprehensive Career Expert, HR Specialist, Workplace EAP Trainer, and Writer, working with management to design, develop, and strengthen human capital management strategies, in the corporate, federal, higher education and non-profit settings.
Career Services Programs Consulting:
Are you starting a Career Coaching, Counseling, Career Development, or Career Services Program for your company, organization or school?
I can collaborate with you and provide direction on creating a world-class program based on best practices, current research, and cutting-edge tools and trends. I have a proven track record of success in developing on-site academic, corporate, for-profit and non-profit career centers, and setting up and leading new Career Services Departments and programs.
I have taught and created career courses at 6 different colleges and universities, and worked as the Director of Career and Job Placement Services for students at a proprietary college. I also successfully developed extensive career curricula, and created and taught career classes at a for-profit Learning Center in Tampa, Florida for 12 years. I have worked with all levels of employees from high school students to senior executives.
My work with senior executives gives me very valuable insights into building successful leaders, which I incorporate into career coaching, counseling, development, and planning programs for students. With 20+ years of career planning curriculum development expertise, I have a wide range of popular resources for any budget.
I developed and taught successful career and workplace topics at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, the University of Chapel Hill in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina.
I consult with corporations and non-profit organizations and achieve desired results on time and under budget. I volunteer extensively in the community as a Career Expert.
