1:1 private career coaching
group coaching program


Hello, friend! That’s me (to the left) welcoming you to CultiVitae – a safe community that helps professionals navigate and conquer the job search process through a powerful blend of career coaching and job search consulting strategies.

Whether you are figuring out what your purpose and calling is; exploring your first, second, third, or fourth lifetime career; moving to a new state, industry, or role — don’t fret! I’ve got your back!

After 6 years of corporate recruiting for Silicon Valley startups to Fortune 500 Giants including companies like Google, FaceBook, J.M. Smucker Co., I learned my purpose was to help professionals who were unhappy figure out two things:
1) How do I figure out how to feel ‘fulfilled’ in my career? and
2.) How the heck do I get there?

You’re in luck, my friend! I’ve decided to dish out all of my recruiting and HR insider secrets through my blog and newsletter, my upcoming e-courses, group coaching sessions, and 1:1 private career coaching! I hope if you’re in a rut or hit a plateau, you can discover meaningful and results-oriented inspiration in this corner of the internet.
