What is life design?
Life Design is about creating alignment between who you are, what you want, and how you structure your work and life. It’s about designing a life that fits you, innately - each facet intentional and curated.
who you are and what you want:
How you structure your life:
There is work for you that feels like a great fit. Coaching is a first step in realizing what you want. Get support as you navigate career development, career promotion, or career change.
Maybe you know exactly what you want from life – you have a clear destination, but the path to getting there is unclear or intimidating. Perhaps you don’t know what you want - just something more. We can begin just where you are.
You’ve got an entrepreneurial spirit – or perhaps just an idea you’d like to pursue. Maybe you’ve gotten started and want to grow or evolve. Maybe this is just the beginning. Let’s start designing the future of your business.
Whether your aim is building a team, building skills, or cultivating connections, elevate the conversation with group coaching. Together, we can curate an experience for your next group retreat or professional gathering.

"She helped me reframe how I define growth and success."
Working with Brandy over the past several months has had a meaningful impact on me both professionally and personally.
Brandy is smart, articulate, thoughtful and an expert in her field, but she is also a wonderful listener, incredibly encouraging and truly made me feel seen. Brandy has helped me identify what career paths are possible for me, build my personal brand, and strengthen and refine my resume and portfolio. But most importantly, she has also helped me reframe how I define growth and success in my life, both professionally and personally.

"Imagine the life I want to live and the impact I want to have."
Through skillful questioning, compassionate curiosity, and authentic relationship building, Brandy co-creates a safe space where clients are encouraged to dream big and "try on" other perspectives. Brandy helps me see beyond my self-imposed limitations to imagine the life I want to live and the impact I want to have in the world.
Brandy knows that supporting her clients on their path to achieving their big picture vision also requires breaking down the path into manageable milestones. I have worked with Brandy informally and formally over the past 10 years and I recommend her coaching practice without any hesitation.

"Working with Brandy has been invaluable to me."
I highly recommend working with Brandy as a coach. She was referred to me by a friend who also really loved working with her and I have recommended her to several other people I know.
When I started working with Brandy, I had very little motivation or confidence about working anywhere at all. We have been working together now for several weeks at a steady pace, and I now have a resume that I feel very good about, and excitement to take the step into a new work adventure. Working with Brandy has been invaluable to me. Truth be told, I will miss having our sessions together.

"She has a deep understanding of your motivations."
I am so glad that I decided to work closely with Brandy. She is thoughtful, organized and incorporates useful and measurable frameworks in her job as a career coach. After just a few sessions, you feel that she has a deep understanding of your motivations, frustrations, and everything in between.
You can tell she loves her work and harnesses her energy for the great benefit of her clients. For anyone in between jobs, looking for a career shift or just trying to stay centered to achieve one’s future goals, I cannot recommend Brandy enough.
