"Before hiring May as my coach, I worked as an administrative coordinator at a tech company. I was working in my dream industry, but I wasn’t being challenged in my role and felt incredibly frustrated. The admin job was meant to get me by while I built up a tech portfolio and finally got the experience I needed to get hired in a “real tech job” after that. But it felt like it was going to take years and years.
I felt like my career was stalled because of my employers, because they didn't understand my talents. But May helped me to realize that I needed to take ownership of my dissatisfaction with my career. She didn’t sugar coat anything, and helped me to really focus on what I wanted in my career, and create a step by step plan to make it happen. After every call with May, my dream career – which had seemed like a pipe dream – felt more and more achievable.
I decided not to wait – I quit the admin job that wasn't working for me and focused all my energy on the tech jobs I’d always wanted while building my portfolio and networking at the same time.
Now I’m an Account Manager at a tech company! I’m so happy that I’m finally exactly where I wanted to be in my career, instead of staying on a career path that didn't make me happy."

I decided to work with May after feeling lots of ups and downs in my work life. When I got a “win” at work, I would feel on top of the world, but if something didn't go my way, I often felt crushed and burnt out. I was trying to do “all the things” instead of focusing on what really mattered to move my career forward.
Coaching with May was so fun and so easy. I always felt inspired and celebrated and walked away feeling TEN MILLION TIMES better than I felt when I started the session!
In working together, May helped me find my creative voice, trust it, and nurture it and finally create a lifestyle that sustains me instead of burns me out! This is a big deal for me, as I’d been dealing with burnout and exhaustion even while gaining more material success and acclaim in my industry. The coaching made all the difference in my transition to a new level of success in my career and I can't wait to work with May again!
