About Vanessa

Hi there HireClub Community!

I'm Vanessa, a Career & Leadership Coach with two decades of recruiting and hiring experience in the nonprofit, government and social enterprise sectors. To compliment my coaching experience I also manage an Executive Recruitment agency , where I provide recruitment strategy and staffing support services to my organizational clients. With my recruiter eye and hands-on experience leading and managing hiring processes I can help YOU identify your next career move and help you stand out to employers in the hiring process.

What Past Clients Are Saying

"I worked with Vanessa to design and build my social impact consulting practice. Using her passion for social justice and her lens on diversity, equity and inclusion, she guided me on developing an effective networking strategy, optimizing my LinkedIn presence and professional brand, and helped me hone in on my marketing and interview preparation skills. These components ultimately led me to securing my first clients and jumpstarted my business. If you are looking for a leadership coach ho will guide you with authenticity, professionalism and accountability, look no further. I highly recommend Vanessa and Colibrí Consulting Group!”

-Laura Olivas, Manager of Community Projects at Mission Driven Finance

"Vanessa’s keen attention to detail, and her ability to comprehensively and succinctly outline best practices for a successful job application was also matched by her superb ability to quickly establish a meaningful relationship with me virtually due to COVID-19. However, the best part about working with Vanessa, is that I walked away from every conversation profoundly inspired to push forward in my journey and with a renewed confidence in my own professional abilities.”

-Brandon Lopez, Enrollment Advisor at All Campus

"Vanessa has been coaching me as I prepare to transition to my new position. She’s great at helping her clients prepare for interviews, giving resume and cover letter feedback, and creating a plan for networking and giving general advice on the job search process which can be overwhelming at times. Because of her I have a lot more insight in how to navigate the job market, negotiating salary and a stronger confidence in achieving my future career goals."

-Yvanka Valverde, Clinical Education Coordinator at Fresenius Dialysis

"After working with Vanessa, I successfully transitioned from a project manager at an education nonprofit to a director in a large urban school district. Vanessa is a great listener, always making me feel supported, and has great follow up. Her knowledge of the nonprofit and education context was extremely valuable for understanding my background and providing targeted advice. I would definitely recommend Vanessa!”

-Karissa Yee Findley, Director of School Portfolio Planning at San Francisco Unified School District

Meeting with Vanessa for a 30 min resume review was extremely helpful! She gave me great insight into how to build a resume that will resonate with employers as well as great guidance on how to build a powerful cover letter. I’m eager to set to work updating docs and look forward to continuing to work with her!

Vanessa was great. She's very organized and thorough. In our 15 min intro talk she outlined how she saw herself working with me and outlined where we would start. The reason I am seeking out coaching assistance is to get help in marketing my skills and getting started with the whole job search process. I'm confident Vanessa will be able to help me with this.
