As a Career Counselor for 25+ years, I have been passionate about helping people identify their goals. Even before the pandemic, I understood the anxiety people felt when thinking about the job search, interviewing, or changing jobs. It is hard to send out dozens of resumes and not receive replies. Also, it's discouraging to conduct job interviews only to be rejected.
I have helped thousands discover their career interests, write résumés and LinkedIn profiles, develop interview skills and learn successful job search/networking strategies. In light of Covid-19, I remain aware of trends affecting the job search. Based in Los Angeles, California, I provide virtual career coaching throughout the U.S. and internationally.
Professionally, I am pleased to be recognized as an expert in the career coaching field, interviewed by the Los Angeles Times for an article about advice for recently laid-off individuals.
I have held Career Consulting roles at the University of Southern California's main career center, the Marshall School of Business, and Occidental College. In my role as a Career Consultant at a global HR firm, I provide coaching services to partners of expats working at multinational US companies. Additionally, I served as the Career Services Director at Pitzer College (part of the Claremont College Consortium) for over 12 years.
As a former Mock Interview Consultant with two highly regarded international Education Admissions Advising companies, over 75% of my clients were accepted into top-tier institutions.
I am a longstanding National Career Development Association (NCDA) member, a Certified Professional Résumé Writer (CPRW), and a member of the Professional Association of Résumé Writers/Career Coaches (PARW/CC). My Bachelor's degree is in Psychology, and my Master's degree is in Industrial Psychology.
Finally, KTS Career Coaching is pleased to contract with the University of Southern California to provide global services to alumni from the Classes of 2018 and earlier.
