Client experiences and testimonials

Nicole is has a very warm & inviting personality, very easy to speak with. Asks good questions that do not feel invasive but allow you to dig deep & really think about what is important to you. Most people, regardless of where you are in life, do not have a career vision. Thinking about a vision of where you want to be & using every decision as something that is going to help you get closer or farther away to that decision is a really insightful way to think about things. Lead with your strengths & thinking about ‘how I show up’ & ‘who am I’/’what is my professional identity’ are very helpful things to think about & figure out as I continue to add value to my company & myself. Highly recommend Nicole to get you thinking about what & who is important:yourself & the value you provide!

Nicole was my career coach during my transition from academia to industry. Being an international student, and a first time job seeker in the United States, I had a lot of questions. Nicole was always prompt, accurate with her responses, professional, and kind. She has helped me keep my spirit high, but doesn’t overpromise. Having her as my coach has been a tremendous source of support as I navigate my career options.

Nicole was great! I came to her when I was in a dark place professionally and emotionally. I felt very heard and got equal parts professional advice, and notes on personal development. After our talks, I feel like I’m primed and ready to get back out into the world. I now consider her someone I can continue to talk to as needed.
– Mike D. (Aug 2018)

Nicole is outstanding and helped guide me through a job search that was quite challenging. But one that ultimately landed me in a great new role that I’d consider a dream job. Through the process and plan developed I gained clarity of myself, my wants, my strengths, and more, which was tremendously valuable. Her feedback, insights on everything from networking, resume writing, interviewing, communication were excellent. And her perspective, accountability and reassurance kept me on track, pushed me past frustrating moments, and gave me significantly more confidence. Nicole was invaluable, I’m forever grateful, and would absolutely recommend her for finding a new job, advancing a career, or really any goal you want to achieve.

Nicole played a big role in my career development.

Nicole’s feedback unlocked my more centered, communicative self. She did help immeasurably in finding my voice and articulating my vision.
– Rosalie L. (Nov 2017)

Nicole is a great listener and asked a lot of insightful and focused questions about my current work situation and my goals. She helps you identify the things you really desire in a job – drilling down past your own perceptions or stories about what you do and don’t enjoy to find out what it truly is that drives you. I had never even considered thinking about my career in that way, and I really appreciate how her suggestions kept me asking questions and shedding those perceptions to help me find what really makes me happy in my work.
