'She provided me valuable ideas on how I could move my career in the right direction'

I am so grateful for Nicole even though it was very difficult for me to make the call and ask for help. She provided me valuable ideas on how I could move my career in the right direction as well as a lot of positive personal support.

'With Nicole, I was able to make the decision'

Most recently, I was feeling lost after leaving the public sector. I was in a role that was technically a promotion and making more money, but I just couldn’t find a way to be happy professionally. I felt a little defeated; I had a job that was mostly fulfilling, but I again wanted more. This led me to a career path that never felt right and I found myself questioning the jump. With Nicole (and my family)’s support, I was able to make the decision that now was the time to make the leap towards a career I could be proud of and that I would be excited to go to every day.
