Introducing

with Samantha Quillen

You can't wait to finally be a part of a thriving organization that feels like an easy, natural fit, instead of the headache you have to medicate just to turn your camera on


You want an adaptive work culture that awakens the humanity of all its team members

You want investments in your leadership, growth, and improvement.

You want distance between you and siloed functions and teams that zap your energy and zeal.

You want to cancel the meeting, email, and task overload that keep you from the life you're "working" to build.

You want to be respected, recognized, and compensated for how you drive success and make a difference.

You want to relinquish the trauma of toil and self-sacrifice that forces you to settle.

You want accountability from a been-there-done-that coach who can't wait to impart and share organizational secrets that give you an edge.

You want to develop a signature professional brand that puts you in control of your career path and future.

Recent Grad Coaching Client

I had a great experience! I defined search strategy, leveled up my marketing materials, and learned how to strategically grow and nurture my network.

I learned how to define my career narrative and highlight my accomplishments towards my future career goals. 

Damaris Kinyua

Sure it sounds good that you deserve to crack through the compensation ceiling and into roles that cultivate your leadership, skills, and future path.

But how do you get from…

"Cookie-cutter job search templates that almost always get ignored?"

"Late-night Linkedin stalking with eyes peeled for responses that never come?"

"Settling for incremental raises or altogether low pay?"

"Training the new hire that ends up being your boss?"

With no shortage of work ethic, all-nighters, team playing, and praiseworthy performance, how do you finally move on from
playing checkers and chess while your competition is playing poker?

It starts with the missing link and been-there-done-that strategy we provide at Creating Miss Jones.

You don't have to settle for a rusty career ladder when you can catapult into a new reality with the right training, coaching, and professional development. We can prove it to you!

We don’t teach corporate in college and many recent graduates can struggle to land their first professional role. Many often don’t find the industry specific guidance they need to navigate the increasingly difficult job search process.

I help my recent grad clients:

translate their education and internship experience into a powerful value proposition, articulate the contributions they can make, and create a strategic career and job search roadmap that will not only land them their first job but launch a successful career! 

still not convinced?

One on One Coach Client

Samantha was exactly what I needed in the midst of my career pivot when I ended my 16 year career of mentoring student athletes as a collegiate coach. 

She was truly my GPS to navigate a historically difficult process. She helped me to clarify that I was most interested in Corporate Social Responsibility and Philanthropy. We identified my transferable skills, restructured my resume and my LinkedIn profile, and she masterfully prepped me for my interviews. I was so glad that I had a partner in the job search process to help keep me focused and hold me accountable. She was so supportive and legitimately invested in my development.

Kennedi Holloway

One on One Coach Client

What is special about this work and my time with Samantha is that it is singularly focused on my career.

I have a space to talk about navigating coworker relationships, performance goals, etc. In the past, I’ve found that career related concerns bleed into conversations with my “traditional” therapist or with friends and family, but neither of those spaces offers me the problem-solving that my space with Samantha does and that is so needed. Samantha also has been helping me navigate a major industry transition, as I moved from the nonprofit space to tech/pharma. Samantha helped me craft a career narrative that I am proud of, and one that feels really unique to me. The investment is worth it.

Danica Richards

I would encourage everyone to seek the support of a career coach, or as I call it, a “career therapist”. 

Grad Coaching Client

I defined search strategy, leveled up my marketing materials, and learned how to strategically grow and nurture my network. 

I learned how to define my career narrative and highlight my accomplishments towards my future career goals.

Damaris Kinyua

I had a great experience! 

One on One Coach Client

Working with Samantha helped me transform some jumbled ideas I had about a potential career change into concrete goals for myself.

I would recommend Samantha to anyone having trouble figuring out and executing their next professional move. She really helped me, and it only took a few conversations for her to make an impact. 

Susan Rauscher

Samantha was a pleasure to work with. She kept me accountable by always scheduling follow-up calls, and she was always very honest with her feedback. Samantha was the first person who ever encouraged me to see a particular detour in my professional life as an asset rather than an obstacle. She coached me to use this experience to my benefit in an interview, and I got the job. Samantha challenged me to consider what I really wanted in a career. She helped me boost my confidence as I pursued a brand new career path. 

One on One Client

If you're like me, you'll wonder why you didn't work with a coach years ago.

Samantha turned what seemed like an impossible hill to climb into a rewarding project. My biggest takeaways from our work together was a greater sense of my own worth. I am now able to separate the wheat from the chaff so I can spend my time networking with only the most relevant contacts. Do yourself a favor and let her help you.
