Hook The Talent
My Story

After 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 to coach 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 working 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 career they wanted.

Thus was born, Hook The Talent, a practice focused on 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.  And, as an 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.
