About Me

That promotion you’ve been working for?

That new job you want?

Will be yours.

This is the last stop you need to make to create the career you thought you’d have when you graduated. You know, the one that makes you a helluva cheque, that commands respect from your colleagues, that lands you well-paying speaking gigs, and that makes you freaking happy!

It’s not too late. You’re not too old. And you deserve a professional life that brings you the happiness you long for.

maria 2I’m Maria. My career is helping you craft one that makes you a powerhouse in the office, the first invitee on the list for decision-making meetings, the woman who is up for every promotion she wants, the one everyone in the office looks to for answers.

I’m the woman to make you that woman, thanks to my long career (more than 20 years) working in corporate communications, my track record of connecting people with opportunities that have turned into profitable businesses, and my ability to amplify women’s success in their careers.

I’ve had great jobs with lovely bosses. The types of jobs where you are so excited about the work that you’re doing that you pretty much vibrate when you talk about it. And bosses who inspired you so much that you’d stretch yourself to do seemingly impossible things just so you could make them happy.

And I’ve had bad bosses.

And bad jobs.

Ones where I should have gone for lunch on the first day and never looked back. Jobs where I hit the glass ceiling after just a year.

And you know what I’ve learned?

  • How to be a better and happier employee
  • How to get noticed (in a good way)
  • How to ask for what you want

Great jobs with lovely bosses are the new standard, a standard you deserve.

I teach you how to demand the respect you should be given, and how to become so invaluable that you make more money working in your industry than you ever thought you could.

Royal Roads University

Royal Roads University, where I trained to be an executive coach.

You’ll learn how to make networking an event that reaps more than an exchange of business cards to be thrown away as soon as you leave.

If you’re looking for a new job, I’ve got you covered there too.

You’ll have a cover letter, resume, and LinkedIn profile that gets you noticed by employers. You’ll be so prepared for job interviews that you’ll walk out as the only choice for the company’s consideration.

You went to school with hopes and dreams of being that one woman in her field everyone looked up to and respected, who made the big money, and who had time to travel and actually LIVE her life outside of work.

That dream is not dead.

It’s alive and well and waiting for you to realize it.

Fulfill that longing in your chest to be the woman your co-workers look up to, to live and to love the work you’re doing, and to earn what you know, deep down in your soul, that you’re worth.

Maria helped turn things around for me at a critical point in my career. I’m now in a role that engages and challenges me, while providing professional development opportunities that align with my overarching career objectives. In short, I’m happy. I look forward to going to work each day and I love my team. I can say without reservation that Maria was instrumental in helping me achieve my professional goals, and working with her was one of the best on the job decisions I’ve ever made.
