After 18 years of working in creative agencies, tech and media companies, I began to question the fulfillment I was getting from my work. I realized that the parts of my day I was most excited about were the conversations with friends about their careers.

MY CLIENTS GRACE THESE HALLS
Joanne recently helped me navigate a major career transition and I literally can’t imagine what it would have looked like without her support and guidance.

Joanne guided a fundamental change in thought to help me realize that managing my career is my job and that I need to make it clear that I invest in myself if I expect anyone else to invest in me.

Joanne helped me think deeply about what it was that I was looking for after graduating from college - what types of roles I would be suited to, and how I could find them. The most important thing that I gained was the confidence to ask for what I wanted and to keep striving towards my goals. This is a skill that I'll continue to work on for my entire career, and she was instrumental in providing the guidance to help me get started. Thanks Joanne!

Joanne is a true partner in the process, supporting and valuing all the emotions that come along with career transition.

Her network of people is remarkable and best of all, she's willing to connect you with them. She's definitely a woman you want on your team!
Joanne helped me reorient my search, helping me pivot from asking "What kind of job do I want?" to "What kind of life do I want, and what kind of positions in my field fit in with that life?" This new perspective helped me secure a new position that is truly a great fit for me both personally and professionally. I can't thank Joanne enough for helping me to think broadly about my next steps, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to gain better perspective how their professional goals can intersect with their personal values and priorities.
