About Denise

First a scientist, I went into IT, performing many roles, ending my IT career in software marketing. I wanted to do more and got my coaching certificate in 2005. I do all kinds of coaching, but have done career coaching more in the past few years. I also write books and have 3 career books out on Amazon. I have a passion for helping people find a job that matters to them and matches their abilities and passions.
