If you told 18-year-old me where I'd be today, and how I got there, I think she'd be surprised. In the past 10 years, I went from a Lead Process Engineer at a Fortune 500 Engineering Design firm to an Engagement Manager in Management Consulting working on projects across North America, to BizOps at Tech. Although these changes were intentional, I felt stressed and uncertain at times.


Over the past 3 years, I have:

  • Met with 50+ top performers and top earners to study their habits and behaviors
  • Studied and dissected the works of experts in this field like Austin Belcack, Madeline Mann, Fiona Chorlton-Voong, and Teresa Duke.
  • Went on 25+ interviews and landed 9 job offers
  • Helped 20+ career pivotors craft their narrative, build their network, and land roles in their dream companies



This course will be your navigation app in the chaos of change and help you pivot with purpose.

        Ellie's frameworks helped me represent my career and accomplishments in a way that welcomed new opportunities and growth, while at the same time being my authentic self. Her guidance has helped me hone in on my career narrative.

        I have many years of work experience, but I didn't have a narrative to tell my story. With Ellie's help, I put together my story, practiced telling it, and used it for networking and job interviews. As a result, I landed multiple job offers. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to pivot in their career.

        I loved our sessions as they persuaded me to dig deeper into my experiences and build a narrative that brings out the whole of me. I learned that putting in the effort to analyze my life journey and identifying its richness is a continuous and worthwhile endeavor. Thank you for your guidance through this, Ellie.
