I woke up 15 years into my career with a sinking feeling that what I was doing wasn’t “it”. The second that I graduated college, I had an ongoing background anxiety of what having children would do to this career that I’d poured my blood, sweat and tears into.

It was that anxiety which led to research, which led to obsession, which led to building a company who helps 100s (someday millions) of women feel confident, develop the skills they need, and land rewarding work that uniquely fits them.

  • Tools to reposition anxiety into action
  • Insights on how transferable skills + natural EQ skills can get you a job
