Book Course

Hi there! I'm an experienced Career Coach, job search Strategist and talent management professional with a true passion for helping high performing and ambitious individuals reach their full potential. I have coached thousands of professionals to land opportunities at Fortune 500 companies as well as start-ups across a wide range of industries and roles.


I partner with clients by listening and understanding their unique needs, and advise them by providing both strategic advice and tactical recommendations. This includes: helpful tools, frameworks and actionable next steps to help you progress towards reaching your short term and long term career goals.

How I can Assist YOU:

  • Feeling lost or stuck in your job search? I will offer insight and direction to help you gain clarity and confidence so that we can create an effective job search strategy.
  • Need help demonstrating how you can add value and impact to employers? I will help you identify and highlight your key strengths and articulate these effectively to employers, while also overcoming potential gaps and/or obstacles.
  • Want to gain traction and increase momentum with employers and hiring managers? I will share honest, constructive and actionable feedback to help you improve your resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile and interviewing skills.
  • Wondering what next steps to take and/or need help overcoming obstacles and staying motivated in your search? I will help you set goals, share ideas and provide accountability to keep you on track and progressing forward in your search.


I know what makes individuals stand out and succeed throughout the recruiting and hiring process. I started my career in business development and consultative roles advising and helping hiring managers and organizations acquire talent. Then after transitioning into higher education, I trained and coached MBA students and alumni/ seasoned professionals on how to capitalize on their strengths, determine their career direction and create effective job search strategies. I also have experience managing leadership development programs (from early career to senior level professionals). While managing a talent team, I helped recruit and interview candidates for a financial services enterprise level company and collaborated with C suite and senior leaders to assist in their talent initiatives. I coached, trained and provided ongoing support to assist participants in their career development.

Kirsten is awesome to work with. She makes you a part of the resume rewrite process so you feel more like a collaborator. This is important because it helps bring about your unique perspective into your work history resulting in a stellar resume. I cannot recommend her enough.
