A LITTLE OF MY STORY
In my later twenties, I remember feeling lost, not knowing what to do with my life. So on the advice of my dad, I went to see a career counselor. In the first twenty minutes of our second session, I knew I found my calling.
I could see myself, feel what it would be like to get to listen to people's stories and guide them to find work that resonates. Soon after, I got my Master's degree and worked for the next many years in higher ed counseling and advising people about careers and academic planning.
I wanted to learn more so I went and trained as a coach for a year.
I like a change of pace and variety and because of that I coach and I work on other projects. I like being part of different work environments and put to work an array of skills.
At the core, are the years of practice I have career coaching and guiding people about work and more specifically in finding work that is inspiring and motivating.
And because I love to play, I practice improv because it's all about saying yes, and ...and being vulnerable, laughing and letting go.
I hike and ski in the mountains because there I get perspective
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I was at a crossroads in my life a few years ago. I am a physician and I was a practicing pediatric anesthesiologist, and just wasn’t feeling fulfilled. Kathy helped me brainstorm and delve deeply into my true passions and inspirations. I am so thrilled that I contacted Kathy. She is thoughtful, supportive, non-threatening, insightful. I highly recommend Kathy as a coach. (See Jeanne's story on the blog)
