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.

Grad Group Coaching Client

My biggest takeaway from the program is to always have a strategy!

Working hard doesn’t always mean you are working efficiently and that is key when applying to your first role post grad. My career search strategy has improved immensely and I can tell by the number of interviews I have been invited to since my coaching with Samantha.

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.

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.

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.
