Private coaching

You are 100% capable of thriving in your role and building a career you love.

Even if you’re feeling overwhelmed.  Or struggling with self-confidence. Or feeling like your career path isn’t unfolding at all how you want it to. 

I understand the obstacles you face as an ambitious female professional – I’ve faced many of them, too.

The good news?

No matter how hard things feel right now, you have what it takes to thrive.

If you're willing to start:

  • Owning what you actually want
  • Believing in your natural born talents, and
  • Making choices from confidence, instead of self-doubt

You can achieve pretty much any professional goal you set your mind to.

And I'm here to help you make that happen.

Do any of these sound like you?

  • You just landed a dream role or promotion, and it hasn’t been the success story you hoped for.  You’re feeling overwhelmed, struggling to hit your stride, and are feeling super anxious about your performance 

 

  • You’ve realized you need to uplevel your communication skills.  You can produce amazing work, but when it comes to softer skills like speaking to executives, influencing, and gaining buy-in – you aren’t as strong as you want to be, and it’s impacting your performance

 

  • You’re ready for a promotion (maybe even overdue for one).  You've realized it's time to uplevel your skills and get proactive so you can STOP waiting and finally lock in that title bump (and raise) you've been wanting

I know how frustrating these situations can be. But I also know that with a little bit of planning and a LOT of heart, you can find your way out of these struggles and onto a path that feels expansive, fulfilling, and highly motivating.

Hi there - I'm Jess - a New York Times featured podcaster and career coach for ambitious female professionals.

I have some pretty unconventional beliefs when it comes to women and our careers.

I believe that:

  • Every single woman deserves to love her career 
  • You can be imperfect and messy and still accomplish everything you want to achieve 
  • Your career should nourish your soul AND your bank account 
  • You can be an assertive leader while being heart-centered and 100% true to your values 
  • Your authentic voice is your most effective voice
  • You probably don’t need a TON more skills - you just need to get better at seeing your gifts and talents, and actually using them every single day

As your coach, my role is to help make your career goals a reality in a way that enriches your quality of life.

I'll help you get the promotion, the title, the raise, or the upward mobility you desire. 

But more importantly, I'll help you build the inner confidence you need to fuel your success for years to come after you attain that big milestone. 

Because it’s not just about the promotion, the title, or the money. 

It’s about feeling unstoppable and carrying yourself with the confidence of someone who knows she’s got what it takes to achieve anything she sets her mind to.  

If that’s something you get excited about, you’re in the right place. 

You only get ONE career trajectory - I'll help you make sure you love it.

This is why we'll start our work by clarifying what you want.

Not the easy, "safe" thing you pretend to want - but the bigger, juicier thing you actually want.

Then, we'll figure out what capabilities you need to build to get there.

Whether you need to get more visible, elevate your communication skills, or uplevel your leadership & execution - I'll work with you to develop the professional skills you need to bring your vision to life.

But our work won't end there - I'll be there every step of the way to help you navigate the fears and second-guessing that inevitably come up as you pursue new levels of greatness.

You'll learn to replace self-doubt with deeper belief in yourself, and develop an unstoppable mindset that makes you feel like the entire universe of professional success is right at your fingertips.

Client love...

Before working with Jessica, I was stuck in a place of dissatisfaction, and nothing I did could make me happy. I was constantly trying to be a "perfectionist," and even though things were going well, I would always manage to find something not so positive to pick on and dwell over. 

I also found it challenging to speak up in front of senior management and deal with aggressive people at work. 

I noticed positive changes immediately after our first session. By the end of the first month, I was more self-aware of my thoughts and was able to reframe my thinking. Over the next 2-3 months, I became less self-critical and developed more self-love and compassion. As a result, I am much more content with my life now. 

Jessica also provided guidance on how I can be more confident and assertive in front of senior colleagues and difficult people. Thanks to Jessica, I made drastic improvements in my communication skills which has been beneficial to both my work and personal life. 

I strongly encourage you to get in touch with Jessica if her work is a match for you. She's kind, non-judgmental, and truly empathizes with her clients. I believe she would be a great fit for any woman who wants to take their career, business and life to the next level!

— Christina C., Finance Industry Professional

Jess has been incredibly helpful navigating relationships -- especially ones that are difficult. I've been able to deepen my interpersonal connections with stakeholders and still move forward with high priority business topics. Jess has taught me how to present to executives and be a better manager by providing feedback in a way that helps to motivate individuals. I've also learned how to soften my communication style through new tips/ tricks that have helped to build connections and improve working relationships. Thank you, Jess!! I cannot believe the transition over the past few months.

Anonymous Client

When I started working with Jess I felt lost.  I had just moved to a new job that had a ton of potential for me to move up in the company. I knew that was what I wanted, but I also felt like an imposter since I didn't know how to best show up and be a strong voice in a large company. 

After working with Jess, I am experiencing these areas so much differently than when I first started!! One of the things I realized through working with Jess was how many of my perceived issues were in my head. My mindset has been the biggest shift, and I can't thank you enough for that!
