Marisa S.

Teacher and Educational Consultant I was dissatisfied with my teaching job. I enjoyed some parts of my work, but I also felt I had many talents that weren’t being utilized. Lisa’s process allowed me to take stock of my talents, and discover new areas where I could apply my strengths. I realized that I wanted to stay in education, but desired a different role–one that allowed me to innovate, create, and motivate other teachers and education professionals to create quality results in their environments. I began to work on a business plan centered around helping educational organizations and professionals achieve their potential through workshops, consultation, and organizational products. I am hoping to work as a consultant to help schools improve their performance through individual behavioral change.

With Lisa, I learned how to be flexible. Lisa believes in creating concrete goals but also working on envisioning new possibilities by focusing on values, not specific metrics. Many of the exercises we did allowed me to envision new possibilities. Maybe I didn’t need to work for an organization–maybe I could start my own. Maybe I didn’t need another degree–I just needed a few specific business classes to learn the basics. Lisa helped to challenge my doubts and also opened my eyes to areas where I wasn’t looking closely enough.

The result for me was a new way of thinking about what I wanted to create in my life by opening my mind to all the resources that surround me: time, money, expertise, and the local community. Lisa is wonderful at getting you to see things a new way, and often challenges your fears and misconceptions about why you can’t achieve a certain outcome. I am excited to see where my new direction will lead, and I would still be sitting around waiting for the right opportunity to come along if I hadn’t worked with Lisa. It was a jumpstart that I really needed, and I recommend it to anyone who is feeling in need of a push in the right direction.

Writer/Editor I was stuck. That’s the best way to describe it. My chosen industry (newspapers) was slowly dying and very few companies anywhere were hiring.

I had stayed in my comfortable job for far too long. I was no longer passionate about what I was doing, and it showed. The quality of my work was adequate, but I was by no means a star. Had I been more inspired, I might have been able to do the work that would allow me to write my own ticket. But I wasn’t doing that. My work no longer felt like a calling. It was just a job.

My job paid well, gave me good benefits and rarely required more than 40 hours a week. I realize, now, I was a little too comfortable. With no promotions or other job opportunities on the horizon, I had no incentive to work harder. I could continue showing up, collecting paychecks and feeling slightly unfulfilled indefinitely.

Still, there was something nagging me to get out. About once a year these feelings would overwhelm me and I’d launch a job search. Then summer would come, I’d lose my motivation after one too many rejection letters or I’d simply decide I was happy enough where I was.

After several unsuccessful rounds of this, I called Lisa. She came highly recommended from a colleague who had managed to execute her own escape from the newspaper industry. On a whim, my wife and I both signed up. To read the rest scroll to the end.


Being cynical newspaper people, we were both a little skeptical about the whole career coaching concept. We were not the type of people who frequented the self help section of bookstores, and the idea seemed a little bit too “Oprah-esque. But we told ourselves we’d buy into the program, wholeheartedly. After all, my current strategy was obviously not working.

While my wife had almost instant success with Lisa, it took me a little longer. I spent a lot of time asking myself what I really wanted to do with the rest of my life. After all, I hadn’t thought about those kinds of big issues since college, a decade earlier.

This was the first area where Lisa really helped me. I had taken “What Color Is Your Parachute”-type tests before and alway felt frustrated by the results. I’d be left with a list of potential jobs, but I had no idea whether they were really right for me. Lisa helped me draft a description of my ideal job. It’s amazing how closely my new job resembles that description.

By encouraging me to do informational interviews, Lisa helped me build the web of contacts that would eventually lead me to my new career.

She gave me the confidence to approach anyone. Instead of blindly sending in cover letters and resumes, I was targeting the jobs and employers I wanted. For the first time I really understood the meaning of the word “networking.” People wanted to help me find a job, and the more people I added to my network, the greater my chances of finding something.

Lisa was invaluable in helping me keep up the momentum. In the past, I had always run out of steam, but with her there pushing me forward there was no giving up. And I was able to use her as a sounding board.

At one point, I found a job that was almost right for me. Left to my own devices, I might have been more confused about the opportunity, but with Lisa there, I knew instantly that it was not the perfect match.

When I finally did find the job that was right for me, Lisa shared in my celebration, and with good reason. In the three months we spent together, she became nearly as invested in the job search as me. And that skepticism I had in the beginning? That didn’t last. I’ve become a convert to the idea of career counseling, and I don’t think I’ll ever undertake another job search without Lisa by my side

Whitney Z .

Volunteer CoordinatorThree months ago, I was burned out at my job in social services and looking for a change, but had no idea how to make it happen. Then my friend, Emilee, recommended Lisa to me.


After our first meeting, I cut down from working 50+ hours per week to the 40 hours a week I’m paid for. Doing so freed up energy to focus on my next step. With Lisa’s guidance, I created a mission statement and a 3-5 year vision. She taught me how to set smart goals and create an action plan to achieve them. Throughout this journey, she gave me concrete tools to work towards achieving my vision and purpose in life.


It’s amazing to look back and see how much I’ve accomplished with Lisa in just three months. Once I put my wish out the universe, doors opened and opportunities hurtled towards me, as if I were a magnet. I’m getting interviews for jobs that pay almost twice what I earn now. I’ve joined a writing group, and have started my first novel. I can’t wait to write Lisa with an update soon to tell her I’ve landed a fantastic job that pays me what I’m worth, I’ve published my first book, and my partner and I have bought a house. Thanks, Lisa! July 07 Update: She got the fantastic job that pays her more than double what she was making. She is looking forward to spending the time she had been spending on job search on her writing. Sep 07 Update: My new job is great! . . . After six weeks, I’m starting to see where the challenges will be, but I’m looking forward to finding creative ways to address them. And being paid what I’m worth is fan-tastic 🙂

Carole B.

Mental Health Therapist I was drowning and floundering; very stuck and unable to motivate myself out of an unstimulating and unrewarding job, Sound familiar?

Last winter, I completed Lisa’s Design Your Life Success Group. From that group, I have moved from being stuck. I completed and became certified in Neurolinguistic Programming; Hypnotherapy and Time Empowerment Therapy. Now,I am in the process of starting my private counseling practice.

Lisa has provided valuable insight and business/technical know how throughout my career transition.

Lisa’s dedication to helping me discover and design my new career has been the single most significant factor in this endeavor. I will continue to have the greatest appreciation and respect for her gifts and talents.
