What people are saying

        I accepted a new role that fits all my criteria—hybrid workplace, smart and invested manager, and interesting product. I have been looking for this role for 6 months and getting nowhere. I used Coach Erika's advice from The Career Whispers newsletter. I am convinced that without her wisdom and tools, I would not be where I am today.

Product Manager
        Erika is a WONDERFUL coach! She's just phenomenal! When I got laid off in December 2022, I knew that I needed help. I met with Erika 6 times over a month and a half and tremendously improved my job search. I ultimately landed a job that doubled my previous salary...yes DOUBLED! Beyond being an excellent coach, she's a knowledgeable product leader.
Steve K.

Product Manager
        Coach Erika is AWESOME!! She has this deep wisdom not only in the job search process but also on career guidance. I was able to create a more compelling carer story and was very confident in my interviews. I was able to negotiate for a higher comp package in a competitive market. She's worth every penny and then some.
Parminder S.

Parminder S.

Solution Architect
        I walked into my interviews at Amazon and Google with a level of confidence I'd never had before. Everything Erika had prepared me for was on the menu, and along the way, I became a better PM and communicator. As a result of Erika's coaching, I increased my comp $152k per year. I recommend Coach Erika without hesitation.

Coach Erika

Coach Erika

I spent the last decade building and scaling unicorn startups (Samsara, Castlight, Verily) and building at scale at Google. I've helped raise over $3B in venture capital―taking 2 startups public, and growing product organizations from < 30 to 2000+ employees.


In the last 13 years, I've switched jobs within and across companies and roles ten times. I've held many roles, from engineer (hardware and software) to EM, TPM, PM, Chief of Staff, Engineering Operations, Founder, and Chief Product Officer.


Since 2020, I've coached 250+ job seekers to get organized, tell powerful stories, and land their dream jobs. My goal is to make the same tools and frameworks I teach in my 1:1 coaching available more broadly, building community along the way.
