I started working with Coach Staci to explore how to use my education, talents, and skills to develop a career and life plan. She helped me discover my God-given gifts, values, and the type of environment I want to work in. Working with her also reminded me the importance of my faith in finding joy, purpose and happiness in a career.
Nutrition and Hospitality Professional
Coach Staci helped me explore my path for the future, set professional goals, and gain more confidence. She also worked with me to become more comfortable when submitting my resume and connecting with people on LinkedIn.
Human Resources Professional
I worked with Coach Staci upon transitioning out of the military. She helped me explore my military skills and translate into civilian terms. She understands the challenges Veterans face after being discharged from the service. It becomes culture shock when you have been in the military for 10 years and then you are suddenly in the civilian world. It is difficult to maintain your military values and ethics in a population that does not value the same things. Coach Staci helped me explore several companies and organizations that were a fit with those values and work ethics. She helped me craft my resume to land a great job!
