"I decided to work with Crystal for an extra push to help take my career to the next level. Crystal helped me organize my values, perspective, and aspirations. Thankfully, her coaching style helped guide me in the right direction, and with intentional goal setting, I was able to land a new role. 

- Shereen L 

"With her help, I made a total career shift into a new field after 13 years in secondary education, and during a pandemic nonetheless. Before I worked with Crystal, it was difficult for me to identify and believe in my skills and strengths..... After we worked together, I began to see that the possibilities were many, varied, and out there for the taking. Only two months after our coaching relationship came to a close, I accepted an excellent opportunity in a new role and a new professional field. It's not only well suited to my experience and skillset, but also an opportunity for change and growth." 

- Rosanne E.
