A little bit about Lisa
I am a career strategy coach helping ambitious and analytical people ready to get “unstuck” from a job you’ve outgrown and find work that truly fits who you are. My expertise is in helping clients get crystal clear on what they want and create the path to go get it, whether that’s moving into a new job, or starting your own business. I love helping my clients clarify big career decisions, find more fulfillment in their work, and create a laser-like focus in entrepreneurial endeavors.
The reason I do this work is because I am a woman on a mission to make our careers as juicy, joyful, and satisfying as possible. If your job qualifies as someone else’s “dream job” — but not your own — I strongly believe we spend way too many hours at work each week to procrastinate seeking out more joy or fulfillment.
My journey started back in undergrad, when I did 8 internships over the course of my 4 years. I saw the inside of amazing brands like CBS, Teen Vogue, the American Cancer Society, and Seventeen Magazine.
After I graduated, I entered the working world and climbed my way up the corporate consulting ladder. I put in the hours learning digital marketing and communications strategy and rose quickly within the companies where I worked, keeping any hints of my dissatisfaction hidden from my bosses. But while I was trying so hard to make my job work, I was craving work that felt more like me.
In my tenure in communications, I tried to find that work: I revived and ran the mid-level employee happiness (and retention) initiative and served as a regional driver for the company-wide women’s empowerment program. It was in this role that I discovered my skill and passion for coaching.
After spending nearly a decade in digital marketing and becoming an expert in branding and advocacy, I made the pivot into professional career coaching so I could leverage my own gifts and do deep work 1-on-1 with individuals to figure out what kind of juicy, fulfilling path fits you.
Over the last several years, I’ve gotten certifications or trainings from Jenny Blake’s Pivot Method, Danielle LaPorte’s Fire Starter Sessions, and the World Coaches Institute.
I love to coach multi-passionate individuals seeking help re-discovering, prioritizing and honoring their values in their work. The clients that have the biggest breakthroughs with me are multi-passionate and landed their first few jobs but are currently stuck trying to decide their next move.
