What is my approach to career coaching?
I identify as an educator, a career counselor, an alumni- and student-success professional, and as an advocate. Values that guide my work include: accountability; authenticity; collaboration; diversity and inclusion; integrity; learning and growth; and responsiveness.
- Coaching is an outcomes-oriented process focused on gaining insights, identifying strategies and resources, and generating action steps to address a range of career development and management goals.
- Coaching is a positive approach that taps into your capabilities and strengths, helping you to practice, hone and leverage skills needed to achieve goals.
- Coaching is a partnership which requires your active engagement and may take place in one or several sessions

Career Development Representatives (CDRs): Alumnae/i Volunteers
For the past several years, alumnae/i have volunteered as CDRs in several major U.S. cities. In coordination with their respective alumnae clubs and the Center for Career and Professional Development, they have organized career programs and networking events, and have served as contacts and resources for alumnae/i seeking to network with the Bryn Mawr or Bi-College communities.
