spending 12 years in the technology sector, I made a career change into higher education by way of educational publishing and the
non-profit sector. Once in higher ed, I began career counseling
working professionals who had returned to school for a bachelor's or a
master's degree as part of a career change.
During my time on a university campus, I realized the majority of
professional students were graduating unprepared, hugely in debt and
still no closer to a new career than when they had started. Why?
Because they were choosing the academic program before they knew what they wanted to do for a career.
Thus was born, Hook The Talent, a business focused on those
back-to-school adults who are considering an advanced degree as a means
for launching into a new career. It is my addiction to learning that makes me an advocate of education with the mantra: The right education for the right reason.
action-oriented coach, I want to help you wrap your ideas, motivations, and values into your next career which I'll do with an energy that is often described as "infectious."

So that's my story. I'd love to hear yours.
