Careers and clients come in many shapes and sizes. Frequently, I am asked what my typical client looks like. Much to my pleasure, I have found there is no common denominator. 

I have been fortunate to partner with clients from all walks of life seeking to maximize their professional lives. These clients range from teenagers to retirees, with varying religious, political and social preferences. They hail from all over the country and every rung of the corporate and business ladder, including executives, middle managers and those who support them. My clients represent a blend of courageous and focused individuals who know that happiness and fulfillment in one’s career is crucial to happiness overall.
