My desire to help women and teens develop action plans to reach their goals prompted me to create Childlike Hope, offering assistance, to individuals seeking guidance in finding employment, and/or navigating conflict resolution at work or in their personal lives. After 20 plus years working in Human Resources including various leadership roles, and numerous challenging experiences in my personal life, I understand the value of having someone in our life that can offer an objective view, different perspectives and the sharing of resources. My biggest professional achievement has been receiving consistent feedback that people "feel better after speaking with me." Equal to my passion for personal coaching is professional coaching. We spend the majority of our day at work, preparing for work or juggling our personal lives around work. So when there is a conflict at work, or we're not happy and fulfilled with our job, it's inevitable that we are going to carry that into our personal lives as well. It is especially difficult when that conflict is with someone in a leadership position that can make decisions impacting our job, pay, schedule, work location, employment status, etc. On the other side, being in a leadership position comes with its own set of challenges as well. In addition to being responsible for managing operations, you're responsible for leading and motivating employees. When conflict or difficult situations arise, it can be very challenging, and at times frustrating, depending on your leadership and personality style. While I have had offered guidance and support on an individual basis, I am proud to have offered my services to local agencies that are dedicated to helping domestic violence survivors as well as disenfranchised and formerly incarcerated individuals. It is my hope that this assistance positively impacts the trajectory of someone's life, as each conversation does mine.
