Feeling stuck? Tired of talking yourself out of that next big role? Not sure how to move yourself in the direction you want? Or maybe you’re not even sure of the direction to go?
Career change is challenging because so much of our identity is tied to “what we do for a living.” Especially at mid-career! I’ve been there, too and I can help.
My Career Coaching Programs are informed by own career transitions, as well as years of coaching and advising experience. I offer a safe place where you feel heard.
I listen for patterns, themes, and relationships to help you uncover what’s really going on and what can be learned from it. Together, we’ll discuss potential blind spots, help you get clarity, and then create an action plan to get you unstuck and moving onto your next level.
By Having Me as Your Coach, You’ll Receive
- Clarity that yields confidence.
- Direction that yields motivation.
- Strategy that yields action.

- 360* aerial-view, aka objective advice.

“Monica was so exceptionally helpful in my journey to changing not just positions but career paths. As a mid-career woman, I felt a little stuck and a lot uncertain about how to frame my experiences and update my documents for my new field. Monica gave concrete, solid advice and she really took the time to listen to what I was saying, honor what I was feeling and help me re-frame it to create a positive thought process and actionable items. Monica’s support, attention to detail, and guidance were major components of my job search success, and if you’re a mid-career woman who feels stuck, I highly recommend you invest in Monica’s services.”

“The best advice I can give a job seeker, particularly women seeking leadership roles, is to hire Monica to assist you with your next job search. Monica assisted me with my cover letter and reworked my resume for a recent job search, and the process was painless and practical from start to finish. She spent time with me on a consultation call to better understand my goals and then we dove into my documents. Having a trusted partner who coached me throughout the process was invaluable during my most recent confidential job search, and I know that Monica’s work was influential in helping me land my new role. I spent many years working in career coaching and assisting job seekers with application materials and could easily do this for myself. However, Monica’s guidance and expertise was exactly the push I needed to get my materials in shape and apply for the right role. I won’t go through another job search without her.”
-Jana L., Executive Director of Undergraduate Programs, Fisher College of Business at Ohio State University
Speaking and Training
Drawing from my lived experiences as a business owner, educator, mom, wife, and advocate, I’m a subject matter expert on: mid-career rewards and challenges; pivoting to new industries; and advocating for others.
I share successes and failures, while also trying to make people feel safe and laugh at themselves a little. I have experience in a variety of venues: podcasts, live TV, radio, and large audiences.
Presentations and Trainings can be tailored to meet the needs of any group. I’d love to chat with you about how we can work together to help you and your team achieve your goals. Contact me here to start the conversation.

Writing Job Search Documents That Work
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a powerful tool that increases self-awareness and helps people become stronger leaders, better communicators, and more effective team members. Since 2004, I have administered this assessment to large (60+) and small groups (5-10) and can tailor workshops to meet any group’s training needs as a certified MBTI administrator and consultant. MBTI workshops can be half or full-day, depending on the size and developmental needs of your group.
Workshop topics include but are not limited to: self-awareness; leadership development; career development; conflict management; and teamwork. Let me show you how the MBTI can improve your leadership and accelerate your team!
