Project Manager
I feel like you were exactly what I needed — although I wish I had found you much sooner! As I have reflected on this process – one quote keeps popping in mind head: “You had the power all along, my dear” Glinda the Good Witch to Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. I think I just needed your coaching to help me dig deep and realize that I could do for myself. My path is very clear now and I’m feeling energized to “follow the yellow brick road” and discover what lies ahead — without fear or trepidation. Thank you for being a compassionate “Career Whisperer” and helping me believe in myself again!
Director of Public Relations
Shazam!!! Following our career coaching meeting Monday morning, I went home that evening and reworked my resume. Tuesday evening I applied online for a position and in less than 24 hours they contacted me for a phone interview. Then last evening I was contacted by another group also requesting a phone interview. They are both happening next week. Thank you!!!

Kim was our opening keynote speaker in October at this year’s Michigan APA Statewide for Payroll Professionals. Kim engaged our attendees from the first moment she began presenting. Her enthusiasm was contagious and she had the room buzzing. Her presentation on Networking had us up and out of our seats and interacting with each other. The information she provided was relevant and gave us techniques and skills that we could us immediately to expand our professional network. Our attendees gave her 5-star reviews, words they used to describe her were; energetic, funny, enlightening, intelligent, effective and valuable. We look forward to having Kim return and work with our group in the future.

Vice President Global Human Resources
Coaching has provided a paradigm shift in the way I think about my career and the way I set myself up for new opportunities. I have never thought about proactive job searching or creating a resume that plays to my strengths rather than just experience. Also, I have never had a lot of confidence and am now beginning to feel confident.

Associate Professor
Kim is really able to dive in the heart of the matter and is somewhat fearless in pushing me to evaluate where I stand or what I can do next. I also appreciate having a sounding board to bounce thoughts, ideas and concerns off of at each new career stage.
Healthcare CEO
I started working with Kim about six months ago to sort out where I am in my career, what’s missing and what I might do next? She asked me challenging questions, helped me think through my dreams and hopes, and guided me to see more clearly what I needed to do and where I really want to go. I have a plan, now, and a good one. Kim is a great listener and wonderfully thoughtful and insightful. Each session we had together led me to interesting new insights, and avenues to pursue that I hadn’t known I wanted and needed. I have recommended her to many of my friends and employees on all levels, and everyone comes back energized and says, “Kim is amazing.

Associate Director of IT Infrastructure
At some point in our lives we ask ourselves the questions “… what is my purpose in life?”…. or “I really need to make a change in my career!” For myself after thirteen years in my current career field I felt I had lost my passion for my work and did not want to “coast” through life …that’s when I started working with Kim for career guidance. Simply put, Kimberly is a natural as a career coach! Whatever you are looking to explore, Kimberly will help you establish a plan for success. Her dedication, enthusiasm and resources make her a valuable person to have on your journey, whatever it may be.
