"I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!! Your coaching was tremendous. Honestly, Emily, I NEVER would have gone into that interview with the confidence I had if you hadn't been such a HUGE support." - Caroline L.

"Thank you, Emily, thank you. YOU are a life-changer! You helped ease almost all of my career and networking worries, and because of you, I'm inspired to believe that anything is possible ... Throughout our meetings, I have felt how much you care about me and my future success. You've made such an impact on me with your support and guidance, and I am eternally grateful to you." - Mavis M. 

“In a word, Emily’s work is life-changing. I always knew what I wanted to do, but the tools she gave me will allow me to bring my career to the next level. She is knowledgeable, engaging, and meets you at your level. I truly can’t recommend her enough.” - Caroline M. 

"Thank you for always providing such an uplifting and high-energy environment in our meetings -- I am learning so many skills that I know I will carry with me for years and years to come." - Katherine S.

"I think of you so often in terms of someone who helped cultivate my career and as someone who left a positive, lifelong impact on me. I miss our sessions and you!" - Rishka M. 

"Everything you taught me has come into play in the real world. I wouldn’t be nearly as productive without your guidance and encouragement, and I’m doing better than my business plan predicted!"  - Trevor K.

“I've been really intimidated by career development in the past but you have made it so motivating and enjoyable. I genuinely feel like a new person. Thank you so so much for all of your continued support and guidance.” - Ken Y.

"I learned so much and feel more prepared than ever before to begin my career post-grad. I really appreciate your support, guidance, and enthusiasm throughout our time together." - Emily H.

"You’ve taught me the importance of time management, networking, branding, and finances. Specifically, I appreciate the time you put aside to read over my website and photography portfolio while sharing your honest feedback. You continuously brought positive energy while establishing a welcoming, professional and creative environment for me to grow. Thanks to you I feel ready to conquer any interviews, assessments, and job applications that come my way!" - Lauren M. 

"I strongly believe that every single working mom should be required to meet with Emily! As a SAHM who is in the process of figuring out career paths, Emily has equipped me with the right tools I need to plan and explore my future career. Through our meetings, she has eased almost all of my career and networking worries and has made me believe in my own limitless future ... Emily pushes her clients in the right direction and inspires them to take their careers into their own hands. The care and empathy that she gives are unmatched; she takes the time to get to know her clients to tailor her expert advice to their career needs. Emily is a valuable asset for anyone who’s ready to get serious about their career!" - Molly M. 

"Looking back, I will greatly miss Emily's ability to make me feel seen and heard, and as though she had all the time in the world for me. There wasn't a meeting that went by that I did not feel that Emily was wholly invested in my current situation or problem that needed fixing. In more ways than one, she has always expressed her deepest desire to help me in whatever way I needed. This I believe is a testament to who Emily is as a person: an empathetic, deeply intuitive problem-solver with a world of creativity under her belt." - Anna P.
