* Get a Great Career Coach
Meg is superlative career coach. She challenged me to rethink my assumptions, blow the cobwebs off retired dreams, and get to the bottom of personal baggage that was standing in my way. She was always kind and encouraging, but didn’t let me sidestep areas that made me walk outside my comfort zone. Meg is an expert in career counseling and very knowledgeable about the current career scene. She gave me the necessary tools to continue on my career growth after our (coaching) sessions had ended. I highly recommend Meg to anyone needing career counseling. Fay Ybarra, PMP
