Thank you for visiting and taking the time to learn how I can help you. I'm a Leadership Coach & Career Strategist specializing in supporting women in their rise to the top and all the turns along the way.


Kind words from amazing women:



Growth Assistant at Refinery29

I really want to just give you an enormous THANK YOU for your wonderful advice and encouragement!

The biggest kicker in all of this is that apparently they were already through their interview process and had actually decided on a candidate, then my resume and cover letter showed up in the office and made them put on the brakes and give me a chance. Now I have a killer job with my dream company, which I honestly didn't think I'd be able to say ("dream company"?!) at 27. So really, thank you thank you thank you!



New Media Designer at Turner Broadcasting

Joanne is an excellent and resourceful career coach. She goes above and beyond to help her clients reach the next level in their career. She's always available to lend an ear and offers genuine advice regarding obstacles at work and how to overcome those situations. She is dedicated to bringing out the best in her clients and helps them bridge the gap to the next level in their career, whether it's tips on negotiating a higher salary or help with finding a new job and the interview/ application process. Anyone would be lucky to have a person like Joanne who can offer support and guidance throughout a clients career journey to a better work life.



Director, Delivery Stream Engineering at Cox Automotive Inc.

I have worked alongside Joanne for a few years now. She is my "go-to" for advice on how to handle delicate situations. She is able to evaluate a situation without emotion and provide sound advice every time. She recently helped me through a career change involving dozens of interviews and negotiating salary. Her dedication to women's organizations is also impressive since I barely have the time to feed my children after a work day. If you have any questions about your professional value or wondering if you are in the right spot in our short lives, I recommend starting a conversation with Joanne.



Sr. Designer, Meredith Corp.

Joanne and I met in 2012 when I was her intern at Ever since she has been an amazing mentor/sponsor and my go-to person when it comes to career advice (and occasionally financial advice). She always pushes me towards growth, and I love that about her! Her background in project management and her GSD (Get Stuff Done) attitude are great compliments to her Career Coaching. She knows the steps necessary to make it happen. She connected me with my current role as Senior Designer at Meredith Corp. and helped me work through the nitty gritty details from preparing for my interviews through negotiating. I am infinitely grateful for her help and I could not recommend her enough! She is one bad ass lady.



Marketing And Publicity Assistant at Hachette Book Group

Joanne has helped me with a career transition and she has been truly amazing support and full of incredible advice. With Joanne’s help, I revamped my resume, website, cover letters, and honed my interviewing skills. Joanne has been amazing support every step of the way throughout my transition, she even pulled over her car while driving on vacation to call me and give me advice. I can’t stress enough how helpful she has been and I will definitely continue to work with her throughout my career. I highly recommend her coaching!




Content Director at Meredith Corp.

Joanne is a great networker and resourceful and wise advisor. Any time I need to make a big decision—hire a senior position (see Danielle Vogl above!), make a major investment—Joanne is my go-to counsel. 



Scrum Master

Joanne recently helped me navigate through an interview/negotiation process and I can't imagine having done it without her. Her feedback was professional and helped give me the confidence I needed to make an important decision. If you're looking for someone to help you through a career transition or to develop leadership skills, Joanne is a great choice. I plan to use her throughout my career and truly can't recommend her enough.



Marketing and Brand Strategist

Joanne recently helped kick-off a major career transition and exploration for me. She's a true partner in the process, supporting and valuing all the emotions that come along with career transition. While I entered the process with some direction and thoughts, Joanne knew how to ask all the right, and sometimes difficult, questions to gain the clarity and validation I needed to move forward. Her network of people is remarkable and best of all, she's willing to connect you with them. I look forward to partnering with her again in the future as my career unfolds. She's definitely a woman you want on your team!
