|I love helping people strategize their future. Whether it’s to creatively position yourself for a new career, improve your management and leadership skills, or design the career path you’ve always dreamed of achieving, I’m here to help you reach your goals.
I have a gift for seeing others’ strengths (or so I’ve been told). What’s more, I apparently also have a knack for bringing those strengths to life, a superpower that comes in handy when writing resumes and building the confidence it takes to overcome career trauma, achieve a level-up, or even navigate the crazy world of job-searching today.
Where did my (admittedly unique yet odd) experience and passion come from?
After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in Civil Engineering, I practiced in the industry for about eight years. For some reason, I thought a tanking economy was a good time to change careers, so in the fall of 2008, I set out to pursue a career in a more creative, communicative environment.
From engineer to entrepreneur, I’ve been in your shoes…and strategy is my middle name.
Over the past ten+ years, I have done everything from sell bags with a direct sales company (and build a top 3% business, company-wide) to run an art gallery, lead a nonprofit to explosive growth, own a snowboard company, help new businesses incorporate, and coach entrepreneurs.
But what I’m really passionate about is helping people achieve career and business satisfaction, realize their true potential and marketability, and deliver that with confidence to reach new heights. To help people get the most out of career and business, and therefore…life.
I am a creative, critical, and strategic thinker. Business sense and marketing strategy come naturally to me. I thrive in situations that require a mix of logic, creativity, communication, and action, and I put all of this to you use for you.
I truly believe that everyone deserves to be happy in their careers. We live in a society that accepts mediocrity. I’m here to help you rise above this norm, recover from life and career situations that have broken your confidence, and help you see your true worth, personally and professionally. This is why I founded Career Benders, and I hope you’re the next person to break the mold.
It is through Career Benders that I live out my passion to inspire confident professionals and help others love what they “do”
