“I hired Lori because I was feeling stuck in my job and needed to find a career that was more rewarding, more challenging, and more suited to me. In the arts, it’s difficult to find a job you enjoy that also pays enough to live on, but Lori helped me do just that!

As we worked together, Lori always helped give me that extra nudge when I was having trouble taking the next step toward success and acknowledged and applauded me when I accomplished something that I’d been struggling with.

Thanks to Lori, I got out of my 8-year rut at the same job and discovered a new career I love that brings me all of the things I want in a job–creativity, variety, challenge, learning, flexibility, teamwork, and cake. With no professional experience but a desire to learn, Lori helped me find ways to become a cake decorator–first on my own and then, eventually, at a reputable cake shop. Now, something I used to do just for fun has become something I make my living doing, and each workday flies by!”

— Emily Sweeney, Chicago, IL

“I was looking to make large changes in my life, both job and city. I was a happy midwestern resident for nearly 30 years but wanted to see what life on a coast was like and get a dream job. This was a tall order and going into it I thought I would have to make large compromises on parts of my dreams to get any of it.

I went to Lori to help me achieve these dreams. It was the best decision I made.

She focused on two things right out of the gate:
1. clarify my goals, both personal and professional
2. get me to stop selling myself short

These twin achievements allowed me to approach my hunt with confidence, patience and focus. My original dream job was to try and combine my technical joys with a personal one. I enjoy large scale data processing with cutting edge tools, music and baseball. Through the tools Lori taught me and helped me unearth in myself I got that gig that would have fallen into day dream territory before our work together.

And yeah, there’s platinum records on the walls of my lobby and I have tons of data to process.”

— Pat Christopher, Intelligence Engineer, Seattle, WA

“When I first met Lori, I was in a rut. Having spent 25 years in the same industry, I was bored, max’d out and didn’t know what to do next. I was pigeon-holed into an industry that I was not so fond of, and saw no way to get out. I felt trapped. Lori understood my predicament, as she had seen it all before — she was sympathetic, but resolute in knowing that she could help me find answers. I took great solace in that!

Through several sessions and dozens of exercises, I began to get a clearer picture of who I am, and where my strengths and talents truly lie. Working with Lori, I was able to translate that understanding into updated, targeted resumes that quickly produced interviews and gave me the confidence to express myself better than ever before.

Consulting a Career Coach should be mandatory for anyone in today’s work force, and Lori is the best at her profession.”

— Robert J. Norris, Warrenville, IL
