My Interviewing Credentials
I've held a lot of positions over the last 30 years, most in leadership, including being a CIO. One of the main responsibilities a leader has is interviewing and hiring the right people. There are secrets I learned sitting on the other side of the desk you can't get any other way. Interviewing methods and fads come and go, but the underlying principles don’t.
I want you to have the behind-the-curtain view of how your interviewers see you, so you can land the job that fits your strengths AND your desires. I've interviewed and hired for all kinds of companies and positions: technology professionals, dog handlers, administrative assistants, cartographers and other geospatial professionals, janitorial staff, directors, designers, professors, accountants, performers, instructors, and more.
I've worked behind the scenes on major Broadway musical auditions (think huge cattle calls with thousands of singers) and I've judged a ton of musical competitions. Because of my natural talent for putting the right people in the right seats, I'm still a sounding board for leaders who are building high-performing teams.
I’ve watched a lot of people compete for an offer that was wrong for them—and I've watched as many people accidentally destroy their chance of getting their dream job by giving the “correct” or “standard” answers (we can see those from a mile away) and not showcasing their true talents. I want to help you avoid either kind of failure.
My experience is completely diverse, from Carnegie Hall to Wall Street to Alaska Adventure, so, no matter the industry you're in, I can help you up your interview game and choose the right job. A job that fits YOU and your life.
"Your personality is so warm and supportive. It was the perfect environment for me to ask questions and express personal doubts. It was also the perfect way to turn my Kolbe results into actionable changes."

Kolbe A™ Deep Dive
This assessment and one-on-one session is the most impactful gift I can give you. Knowing your innate strengths is the key to acing an interview, but also to making the right choices in your career.
What makes the Kolbe A™ Index different is what it measures. Most assessments measure your IQ or your social style. The Kolbe A™ measures your inborn instinct for taking action and solving problems. It tell you how you naturally accomplish your goals.
And since solving problems and taking action is at the heart of what we do at work, the Kolbe A™ is the best predictor of your success and fulfillment in a career.

It's genuinely given me self-confidence.
You have no idea how it's positively impacted my life.

You're not a conventional coach/counselor/advisor and that's awesome because traditional, weirdly, has not worked for this erstwhile rule follower.
I cannot speak more highly of your integrity, rye wit, intuitive eye and efficacy in validating the humanness of the struggle to identify one’s work in the world.
