Monica did an excellent job giving me feedback during a mock interview. She helped me leverage all the experiences that were relevant to the job I was looking for and she made me feel comfortable. Job interviewing was causing a lot of anxiety, but I felt more confident after my session with Monica.

Monica provided amazing interview prep that enabled me to secure a job with Duke University's Talent Identification Program (TIP). She is highly knowledgeable and skilled at getting her clients to present their best selves. Working with Monica gave me the skills and confidence to secure the position and eventually, a promotion. Thanks Monica!

Monica’s MBTI training was so valuable for my department. I have used the resources she provided in one-on-one meetings with stakeholders in order to better understand both my needs and my stakeholders’ needs, as well as how to better communicate. I often find myself looking over the instrument when troubleshooting personally and professionally.
Mikaela B. Project Manager
After 18 years in the same position at a college, I knew it was time for a shift. Monica helped me update my language to reflect a different type of corporate culture and made my language stronger in both my resume and cover letter. She also guided me through mock interview questions to sharpen my answers and make them better reflect all my transferable skills. Most important, having her as a partner helped me to feel self-confident as I worked my way through the interview process. Now, I'm about to start my dream job! Many thanks to Monica for her encouragement and for helping me to find a better version of myself.
Kristin H. Learning & Development Specialist
When applying for jobs in an entirely new field, cover letters were downright difficult as I stretched out of my comfort zone a bit. Monica provided me with terrific critical feedback that made my cover letter so much more personal. I received a call to set up an interview the day after I applied!
Jessa W. Project Manager
Monica's support developing my resume and LinkedIn profile was invaluable. Her care and attention to understanding who I am, my accomplishments and where I wanted to head with my career was exemplary. Very skilled with respectful probing questions to bring out all the information needed. Fantastic help, and well worth my recommendation.
Andrew H., MBA Engineering Program Manager
Monica was very helpful as I navigated a job search for the first time in years, especially in a new market. Her fresh prospective on my resume and cover letters made me rethink how I was presenting myself. I appreciated her candid and quick responses to my questions and willingness to discuss specific opportunities.
Kristin J. Product Manager
I highly recommend Monica for her fabulous writing skills, attention to detail and fabulous personality! She made my resume experience incredibly simple and stress free. I loved how she restructured what I had created decades ago and brought it back to life and made my resume current. I also loved the way she corrected all my errors in my "About Me" page on my website. I knew what I wanted to say, she just made it more legible and concise.
Kelle D. Small Business Owner & Photographer
Monica offered me the support and guidance I needed to develop my job searching strategy. Monica also offered great advice on my resume and personal branding. Her perspective and knowledge were very helpful as I navigated a job search in a new area. I would recommend anyone to work with her for resume and job strategy guidance.
Coretta K. Senior International Development Associate
Monica ran two separate workshops using the MBTI tool for our MSU BEST group (about 30 strong) and then for a smaller ASPET network (8-10) people. She delivered a thoughtful discussion that infused her own experiences into the mix, and that made it wonderful. This was EYE opening for the people who took it- trainees in the biomedical field- as they had never done this type of self-analyses before. She answered the many questions that accompanied such an interesting exercise and put everyone at ease during something that could be somewhat awkward. This - and Monica in particular - is someone I highly recommend for administering and then discussing the MBTI.
Stephanie W. Pharmacology Professor
My family decided to explore some job opportunities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Knowing how the current job market match talents and jobs, I knew my first step was to update my resume and LinkedIn profile.
Monica stepped in to help me. She patiently listened to my career path, global experiences, and multiple technical and leadership roles I took in GE, then quickly came back to me with her updated version of resume, that included my skillsets and experiences that tied to my career interest and current job market demands. Then, she also updated my LinkedIn profile in a very precise and concise way.
Few days later, I started getting phone calls from recruiters for interview opportunities. And within a month, I’ve been offered a new job in SF Bay Area and I have recently moved my family with the new job.
Yu B. Software Platform Leader
Monica spoke about childhood cancer awareness on behalf of her son, Luke, as a guest speaker for the Nursing Student Association. Monica is a strong advocate for research, as was evident by her knowledge on the topic and involvement with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Her speech was both moving and inspirational, teaching us all to never give up when things in life get tough.
MaryJo J BSN, RN
Monica revived my resume when I found myself unemployed after losing my job of 19 years. Monica was easy to work with, flexible, and eager to customize a resume to my desired career goals.
Dan S. Applications Engineer
Monica was such a supportive coach throughout my job search process. As we transitioned my resume from higher education into industry, Monica helped me learn the language to describe my skills within an industry setting and ways to talk through how my experiences can be leveraged outside of Higher Education. After 2 weeks in my new position, I feel confident that her coaching and resume writing were integral in my successful search. I would recommend Monica to anyone who is looking to enter into a new industry or space, as she is patient, understanding, and encouraging throughout the process.
Mary S. Training & Development Professional
I hadn’t updated my resume since college and when it was time transition my career, I felt pigeonholed by the fact that I had worked in the same role for 10 years. Monica helped me translate my skills and experience to be marketable outside of church-work and I quickly landed a job consulting with a national organization. The prospect of updating a resume was paralyzing, but Monica made the process simple and direct. Her feedback was both affirming and challenging. I know my resume would not have been nearly as appealing without her help.
Annie G. Consultant & Program Coordinator
Monica helped me during a mid-life transition from a job I loved (but where I was getting bored) to a job I really didn't care for (and wasn't particularly good at). She helped me figure out why the current role wasn't a good match, what my strengths were, and how to work with a new boss with a MUCH different Myers-Briggs type than mine. She helped me gain so much insight into what I wanted, why my current job wasn't fitting my needs, and so much more. I highly recommend her for anyone needing career advice- it's worth it!
Karen S. Client Relations Director
As I was looking at changing jobs for the first time in my career, Monica helped me navigate my uncertainty and talk through my thoughts to reach the decision that was best for me. We worked together on my resume and she helped rewrite it to be more focused on my achievements rather than my day-to-day tasks. When I finally got my first interview, Monica walked me through possible questions and helped me craft my story to be interesting in way that was both career and personally focused. Monica helped me feel confident in the decision I was making and she really seemed to care about my success. I would absolutely recommend Monica to anyone looking for career guidance.
