Did you know that 40% of men and 68% of women never negotiate their salaries?  
Many people fear that negotiating will taint their relationship with their bosses or that their offers will be rescinded if they ask for more....and that's where I come in! 
I have more than 100 successful negotiations to my credit! I work with clients who are starting jobs at new organizations, those who have been in their roles for a while and believe they are underpaid, and those who need to negotiate severance packages. I have designed a process which helps my clients prepare to NEGOTIATE FEARLESSLY!
My negotiation experience began when I was graduating from graduate school. I was in the top 5 of my class at Columbia and the offer I received from a bank, did not align with what my other 4 peers had been offered. My cousin who is a top-performing recruiter for Robert Half advised me not to negotiate since this was my first job after school. After doing some research, I decided to take the plunge and negotiate my salary and benefits. The negotiation was a huge success - I received an $10k on my base salary, a $5k sign-on bonus, an extra week of vacation and a better title. As word about my success spread, friends and friends-of-friends began enlisting my help.
Many clients whom I help with their salary negotiations, express a desire to continue working together once they are in their new roles. I have had the opportunity to provide executive coaching to clients in a wide variety of roles and organizations. My coaching is transformational and I create a safe-space for my clients to open up and we work together to achieve the goals that are most important to them. 
I specialize in helping executives navigate toxic work environments. Having worked in several toxic environments myself, I know how soul-crushing it can be! I help clients develop the skills and tools they need to effectively navigate their environments while keeping their confidence in tact. 
I worked in Corporate America for 15 years and it wasn't always easy! Combined with my coaching expertise, I leverage my background in human resources, change management and leadership development to help my clients create the careers and lives of their dreams! 

Work and life aren't always easy but we have the opportunity to learn and grow each day...and....have fun in the process! 

I look forward to working with you!
