More fulfillment. More joy. More appreciation. More money. More free time.
You are wondering what your next step is, and how you can figure that out without making a blindfolded leap into the unknown.
You're spending time applying to a bunch of jobs, reading career development advice, listening to podcasts, updating your resume. Or you're starting to think about what's next and want to be intentional about it.
Pro tip: you don't have to do this alone!
I help people clarify their strengths, generate and test ideas for their future, and then make a plan to create that future...
I’ve made several career pivots by searching for the next thing that fit my background, rather than being intentional about creating my own next step.
When you’re in a role and thinking about your next step, it might be because you're feeling bored, undervalued, and underpaid, or in a toxic work environment...
Or, it might be because you’re ready for a larger change - a pivot into a new field or into the next phase of life.
That’s what I help people who want to figure out their next step do -
When you design your own path, that's where the magic happens - the excitement about projects you're working on, the energy to have hobbies and interests outside of work, the growing fulfillment and meaning...
Because that's what most of us are looking for - we want to be fulfilled by contributing to something meaningful, we want to feel seen and valued.
This is for you if you are higher education staff, and feeling like you're in a dead end role or thinking of making a change. (You may be thinking of leaving higher ed, or you may love it and know you want to stay - just not in your current role.)
This is for you if you are an executive or administrative assistant who is ready to transition out of a support role and into a different job and career path.
This is for you if you are ready to explore what is next so that you can make an intentional shift forward into a role you actually enjoy.
"I felt very stuck and disappointed with my career trajectory and wanted to know best how to move forward. I was considering a different industry and didn't fully know how to articulate my strengths well enough to be chosen for the higher level positions I had applied for.
Now, I am clear on what I actually value in the workplace and from a job and can determine if job listings will or will not meet my needs. I can also articulate my strengths in a clear way and feel a greater sense of accomplishment knowing how to do this. While I still feel like my current position isn't exactly where I want to be, I am able to use more discretion in choosing future opportunities that will make me feel valued and an integral member of the team."

[Krista is] reminding me that people pivot and change throughout their entire lives, and being curious and exploring and asking for help is a productive way to grow!"
