What People Say About Us and Our Work
“Working with Jean has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a really long time. Before I reached out to Jean, I was beyond frustrated with my work environment, questioning myself constantly and unable to move in the direction I felt called to pursue. After a few meetings and with Jean’s ability to sift through the chaos that I had spinning around in my mind, I was already making huge strides towards the ultimate goal of really understanding myself, my fears, and the items that were keeping me from making my next career move!” Connie F. Sr. Solution Architect
“I felt I needed support from an objective observer who had the tools to see through any of my issue avoidance tactics and who could help me help myself. What I experienced was that if you are willing to be open to the tools and methodology then you can learn about yourself, your motivators and your barriers. People should understand that [in] coaching you are being challenged and driven to help yourself find the solutions to your own issues. This gives a great sense of satisfaction when you are able to move ahead and get past blockages that previously seemed insurmountable.” Nicholas H. HR Director
“When I began working with Jean, I was immediately attracted to her strong and compassionate nature and I was easily able to connect with her as my coach. I came to Jean feeling disconnected from my inner self and my outer life and I knew that something was missing – I just didn’t know what. Jean helped me explore who I really am deep down, what I really want and need out of life in order to gain the fulfillment that I was searching for. I am now more connected to my inner self, more engaged in my outer life and excited about the fulfilling future that lies around me and ahead of me.” Marisa S. Small Business Owner

Our Values

  • We believe that a great life is enhanced by a great career; we spend so much time working that, if our jobs are not in alignment with our values, it’s difficult to enjoy life.

  • Throughout our lives, we have both experienced highs, when our work made us feel rich and fulfilled, and lows, when we were just flat out miserable. We learned from those experiences and feel fortunate to be able to share our philosophy with others who may be going through something similar.

  • Our goal in our work is to support, motivate, educate, and inspire you into taking action and chasing your dreams.

  • In our experience, women, minorities, immigrants, first-generation Americans and first-generation to corporate have additional challenges in the workplace. We know this from our personal experiences, and from working with thousands of people over several decades in companies, large and small.
