“Gretchen is one of those rare professionals in consulting. She is genuinely eager to learn about your area of business, background, short and long terms goals/needs and provides high impact partnership. What makes her special is her passion, willingness to go the extra mile to deliver results and her authenticity.”

“I came into my work with Gretchen as a “newbie” to coaching…Gretchen exceeded any expectations that I had. The way that Gretchen challenged me on how I viewed certain situations was one of the most beneficial things from our time together. She helped me pivot my thinking to take a more holistic view and cut out “the noise”. When I was struggling with handling certain challenges that office/career life throws at you, having the opportunity to work with somebody who has experience in HR, was a huge benefit. I’d come to our sessions with areas I wanted to talk through and focus on, and I’d walk out feeling confident and ready to take on whatever came my way. With her guidance, I was able to successfully navigate the promotion & salary track and achieve the career goals that I’d laid out when we first started our work together. I certainly don’t think I would have been able to do that as well, if not for my work with her!”

“Gretchen changed my way of viewing my life goals! We discussed what I really wanted and then what I was doing to get to the goals. At one session, we realized that I was looking for something that was not really in line with what my passion and my goals really were. After that session, my outlook changed and a position, more in line with what I really wanted to do came up, and I got the position. This has now allowed me to re-focus and re-motivate building my business! Thanks Gretchen, you helped me to see through my fog! I am now excited and so thankful to you!”
