Testimonials

“Working with Pam has changed my life.  When I initially contacted Pam to learn more about her services, I was emotionally, physically, and mentally struggling with a challenging boss at work. I was also dealing with career burnout. The stress from this negative work environment had leaked into my personal life and was wreaking havoc on my health. Pam has been a savior in helping me to get back on track and turn my crisis around. In addition to lending an emotionally supportive ear, she provided me with both the professional and personal life strategies I needed to help me get through each day. She also helped me to better define my career interests, values, and goals so I can pursue a position that both speaks to my heart and pays the bills. Every session with Pam has been an enlightening one, with takeaways that can be immediately applied to my career and life.  I don’t know where I would be right now personally or professionally if it was not for Pam.”

Kristine, Project Manager

“Pam does great work! As I transitioned into a more senior role within my organization it was challenging and I needed to recognize and adjust to new skill sets and communications needs. Pam was able to help me capitalize on some of my natural strengths. I had to grow professionally and she helped me recognize some really needed areas for professional improvement. I now feel much more capable communicating effectively with C-level and Executive Staff. I have also found it very helpful in communicating with and coaching my own growing team of direct reports. Finally, I am better able to manage and foster conflict resolution for the benefit of my customers thanks to the work we did together. I highly recommend working with Pam as a coach.”

Marc C., IT Manager

“I went to see Pam for career guidance after high school and while I was trying to figure out my major in college. I took the Myers Briggs and did the Strong Inventory with Pam and it helped me discover what I was really interested in and the types of things I wanted to be doing with my career. With the help of Pam’s coaching and guidance I am now enrolled in an OT program and really excited about the direction I am heading in and my future career!”
