Role and Company
Career Coach, Business Owner
27 years experience in general business
Federal Way, WA
15 years as a Life Coach, mostly focusing on careers, started out PT while in corporate careers (technology, business). Have taught military students as a college professor with American Military University and elsewhere. Have an MA in Psychology as well as an MA in Anthropology, Have been a small business owner for over 7 years so I do small business coaching as well as corporate-success career coaching. I have an understanding but non-nonsense approach to reality; I will tell you what will and won't work - no platitudes about how business "ought" to work. See my testimonials on www.soaringdragon.biz. I am fully certified to work on all the internal barriers to business and life success, because that's what trips most people up, but I also have a dozen clients who just want interviewing and resume tips and that is great, too! I love helping people to navigate the "should I go back to school? How long will my chosen degree take?" and "what career will make me happiest?" as well as the more mundane "Is Boeing a good place to work?"
