Hi there! Thanks for stopping by!
Here’s what I believe. Infinite possibilities exist at the intersection of women, technology, and education.
Here’s what I do. I lead clients to new, unimagined perspectives on their careers.
How? By rediscovering, reclaiming, and re-imagining their talents, skills, strengths, work experience, and life experience so they can identify their ideal careers and go after them!
I know how to bridge the gap between people’s perceptions of what tech work is and the reality of the broad range of career opportunities in technology.
Why me? I’ve had several careers including magazine publisher, software entrepreneur, stay-at-home mom, and social entrepreneur. As a Certified Professional Career Coach, I use that extensive and varied work experience to help women take action to embrace change with excitement to reach their dreams.
Clients dig down and unearth their hidden talents. They also learn how to talk about their talents and skills as we create strategies to lead to the success they want.
We re-imagine their current careers or imagine and explore better ones. Along the way, we develop a picture of lives that they would never have dreamed of without coaching. We take all of the work we do together and create a personalized, achievable career path.
I also help clients reframe their “problem” traits—like ADD and dyslexia—and develop strategies to turn those problems into solutions – good ones. I’m known for my outside-the-box strategies for helping clients jump their internal roadblocks to move forward.
So, a little about me and my qualifications. I have a Master’s Degree in Special Education with an emphasis on ADD. I’m also a Certified Professional Career Coach. And, as I mentioned before, I’ve had numerous careers, including owning a software company, and working with startups.
I have 3 grown kids, so it’s hard to get them together all at once. When we do get together it’s like I’ve hit the jackpot! I love to read – anything that has words – books, magazines, cereal boxes, you name it. I love hanging out with friends, having a good meal, going to the movies.
But here’s why I’m really qualified to help you. I get you. I get people. All kinds, sizes, and flavors of people. Crowds of people, or one-on-one. I love people.
When you love people, there is no greater rush than helping them succeed. You’re ready to get a new perspective on your career, so let’s do it.
“I like your positivity and that there are no obstacles. You find a way over it, around it, or through it. You never let me say ‘this is never going to happen.'” – Lesa Weaver
