Meet your AOG Career Coach!
My coaching method: Collaborative and goal-oriented
Coaching is not about getting you a job, rather helping you identify and take the right steps to get from point A to point B in the easiest way possible.
How I can serve you: Self-assessment, goal-setting, job search preparation, accountability, connections to industry professionals.
My role at the Association of Graduates: I have been with the AOG since 2011 and began managing AOG career programs in 2013, serving as the liaison for the AOG’s joint career program Board of Directors, along with representatives of each of our sister service academies.
Why I love my job: I am a problem-solver and connector of people. Serving veterans is my passion and my way of saying thank you to those who have served our country. As a volunteer mentor for veterans in all stages of their careers over the last 5 years, I have worked with hundreds of transitioning veterans in the areas of career aptitude assessment, education pursuits, business networking, Linked In and resume development, job fair preparation, and other unique needs of service members moving into the civilian workforce.
To increase my ability to serve those who have served, I recently obtained my career coaching certificate from the National Association of Colleges and Employers, the national governing organization for alumni career program development. Currently, I am working on certifications to be a practitioner for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Strong Interest Inventory career assessments, in order to better assist alumni in navigating career transitions.
Education: My marketing and sales degree (Bradley University) allows me to coach job-seekers in a creative way – helping you strengthen your presence in the job market and sell yourself as a valuable candidate, so employers can fully understand what you bring to the table as an entire person, not just a set of skills on a resume.
Work Experience: I began my career with Caterpillar, Inc. and subsequently found myself laid off in the wake of the 2009 economic downturn. Having experienced a long period of full-time job searching, I have immense empathy for those who are currently in the search. Career transitions trigger many emotions – both positive and negative. It is my resolve to continue building a career program for Air Force Academy graduates that will provide innovative resources and guidance to make that transition as uncomplicated and successful as possible.
Important Notice to U.S. Air Force Academy Graduates: The iSABRD platform is no longer supported by your Association of Graduates or the Joint Service Academy initiative.
