“Through my work with Julie, I was able to understand the long arc of my professional career in a new way. We explored aspects of my personal and professional life and recognized patterns and commonalities that helped me solidify how I wanted to move forward. She encouraged me and inspired me to become the best version of myself by reminding of the things I am most passionate about. In the end, she helped assemble all of my seemingly disconnected passions and interests into something powerful and whole. I'll be forever grateful. Her pricing is a real value, too, as far as I'm concerned!”

What is Strategic Career Planning
Strategic Career Planning is a four 60-minute session series that helps navigate the process of identifying your career goals, crafting a strategy to reach those goals, and developing a roadmap comprised of action steps and milestones.
EXPAND Your Self-Knowledge & GROW Your Value
DESIGN a Roadmap & CREATE Opportunities
ACHIEVE Your Goals
This work requires serious thought and energy. Collecting information about all your options can quickly become overwhelming and difficult to manage while fulfilling your current professional commitments. It can also be an emotional roller coaster, an ever-changing blend of exhilaration, disappointment, anxiety, and hope.
Take heart! There is a process that keeps you moving steadily forward despite these challenges.
Strategic career planning is essential for career development. The process ensures you remain focused and engaged,
are prepared for any challenges, and incorporate a customized strategy when evaluating opportunities or next steps.
The framework outlined below identifies the phases of a career development cycle that leads to
the pursuit of a satisfying career.
I help clients get in the driver’s seat of their career by focusing on
how they can instead of why they can't.
This series allows you to see yourself, your career/role, and the world
differently and empowers you to move tirelessly towards change — every day.
Loss of control is the primary cause of your frustration, distress, and pain.
Take your power back and become the architect of your career and life.
Your feelings of being stuck, trapped, or dissatisfied
will begin to disintegrate when you decide
change is possible, and commit to it.
Get unstuck and start moving forward again!
This strategic career planning series helps you identify your desired career trajectory and next steps to create more opportunities that are right for you. Life is unpredictable and loves to throw curveballs, often offering unexpected opportunities. Your career strategy will help you evaluate these opportunities to determine if they align with your career goals. A career strategy breaks the cycle of jumping ahead blindly with no idea what may be around each turn and allows you to explore how things will play out over time before saying yes or no.
Understand what you want,
believe that you deserve it,
and be bold enough
to step up and claim it.
It will take courage, hard work,
focus, and commitment
to affect the change you desire
but designing your journey
will be empowering, fulfilling, and challenging.

“When I decided to work with a job coach I had a vague idea about my needs as a professional in the midst of a career change. Julie really took the time and helped me dig deep to really understand my career path and my strengths. Not only did she help me see how valuable I was as an employee but she gave me spectacular advice that I could apply to all areas of my life. I highly recommend Julie for anyone wanting to maximize their individual potential.”
