Gain the clarity you need to create a career you love
If you’re like me, you’ve noticed the road to success is complicated. And when you find it, it sure isn’t easy. You wake up Monday mornings already stressed, you’re always on call and feel like you can never quite get away. You think about work at all hours, checking emails in bed before you’re fully awake. And with all you give your career you can never quite get away. You’re constantly pulled in every direction and feeling like you’re always letting someone down- your boss, your family, yourself.
I get it. I’ve been there.
Burnout is real. It’s happening or has happened to most of us. There are ways to come back from it so you can feel recognized, impactful, challenged AND successful. And have time for the rest of your life.
There’s a better way. And you don’t have to leave your job or become an entrepreneur.
I help high-achieving (and on their way up) professional women create sustainable careers without burning out or giving up on success.
If you’re like the other 87% of us you feel some combination of exhausted, unengaged and overworked. Immediately stressed at your day’s activities, struggling to find connection to the work you do has become the norm. Even if you love your work, there’s still complicated office politics to figure out.
Whatever your situation, you may not feel like you’re making an impact, a difference.You may not feel noticed or respected, encouraged to use your most natural abilities, seen and understood. You may feel underpaid and under-appreciated.
Or maybe you like your job but you don’t see a path for you to continue to grow. You feel stifled and boxed in. Either way, it’s not good.
Here’s a fact we can’t ignore:
Burnout is an epidemic.
You’ve likely experienced some form of feeling burnt out, overworked, exhausted, underappreciated or frustrated.
The whole thing feels insurmountable. You can’t see an option that would fix your situation. You feel…stuck.
It’s time for change.
The good news: with the right guidance, you can change your situation immediately. Together with my expertise and your decision to take action we can make changes without wasting any more time.
“The moment I decided to get clear on what I really wanted, career decisions seemed easier. And it’s not as scary as I thought. I no longer feel guilty about work or pressured about what I have to give up in order to get ahead. This (working with Anne) is a must for anyone struggling with advancing at work and living a full life.”- Mackenzie S. Director, Int’l Insurance Company
Clearly the way we’re working isn’t working.
My approach to career development focuses on adding more conscious action to your life, letting go of the way it should be and the pressure to fit in. I take a holistic approach vs. compartmentalizing, looking at how you eat, sleep and think as well as how you work.
The way we interview for and accept positions, and the way we climb the ladder is flawed. It doesn’t take into account our HOW, our life’s priorities and what we need to feel whole. My approach offers a solution.
You don’t have to change everything at once. But you do need to take action now.
I’m here to be your strategic advisor, to help you work through your options and create a step by step game plan to change your work situation. As your partner, you can transfer some of that burden, that overwhelming feeling that comes with change, to me.
I’ll use my behind the scenes knowledge to help you get hired, get a raise, a big office, more responsibility, a new job or that work-life balance you know you need.
With my help you’ll be able to…
- get clear on what it is you really want to do, be it in your current job or in a new one
- identify your unique strengths so you can be in a position where your natural gifts shine… so you have clarity of direction when making career decisions
- navigate stressful situations or conversations
- learn how to create balance and come back from burnout
- consider opportunities and have difficult conversations with greater ease and clarity
- negotiate for the money or promotion you deserve
Whether you’re looking to change jobs, negotiate a promotion or a raise, figure out a new leadership position or interview like a pro, even the most qualified people need reassurance and direction. That’s where I come in.
With 15 years of corporate career development experience and as a former VP for a Fortune 500 recruiting firm, I bring to the table the insider knowledge you need to change your work life.
See, I became the youngest VP in a male dominated company and industry at an early age. I climbed the ladder, I negotiated, I connected and advocated for myself. I figured it out- trial and error style. This is what I’m here to share with you.
I’m a contributor to MindBodyGreen, Huffington Post, HuffPost Live to name a few. Huffington Post has called me a Burnout Expert and I’m consistently tapped to speak on burnout and leadership development. This is where I can help make a difference in your life.
Have you wondered why some people seem to be handling work just fine while you’re slaving away at your desk until 8pm? I’ve got your back. I can help you see what’s missing and add it to your life. As someone who’s hired, fired, trained, promoted and developed thousands of people for dozens of companies (including my own), I can help you prepare for every step of your career. Why go it alone?

Truth be told, my experience doesn’t really matter. What matters is the result. Can I help you to find happiness in your career? Yes. Can I help you create options and help limit the stress around your work? Yes. The question is whether you’re up for the challenge.
Let’s do this!
Working with a career coach and mentor is about more than transition and finding a job. It’s about finding the right job where you’ll be doing the right things to get what you want out of life. Because your situation is unique, the process will be unique to you. It’s about being clear on what you bring to the table, why you’re worth it and how you do your job like no other.
Many women come to me to learn how to transition and advance in their careers. To do this, I customize a strategy that involves packaging and positioning you for your next move.
This is my sweet spot — it’s what I have the skills to do, it’s what I understand inside and out, and it’s what I love.
