I Need a Career Change



Tear up the rule book and
set the world on fire!

You've followed the rules, played the game, put everything you've got into advancing and excelling in your career while missing out on or juggling family obligations and personal passions. On paper, you've got the kind of life every career-focused woman dreams of.

At least that’s what everyone tells you.

But you're not satisfied. Despite achieving all your goals, you still don't feel happy and fulfilled. You've lost the passion and enthusiasm that drove you to success, your image and brand don't represent the real authentic you, and now you're just going through the motions.

Life’s too short to be stuck and frustrated in a profession, job, or career you don’t love when deep down inside you know you were meant to do more, to be more. It's time you stop compromising, climbing the proverbial career ladder and following other’s ideas of what you should be doing in your life and career. You're too smart and have too much potential for that.

The only way is to tear up the rulebook and write your own rules so you can do the meaningful work you’re meant to do, build an authority brand, elevate your presence, make an impact, and set the world on fire!

If you're looking to position yourself for success, you've come to the right place. 

"Working with Carol helped me to discover my authentic core, build a powerhouse brand, and get more visibility within my organization. I’ve ignored, denied, shrunk, and held my strength and gifts back for years. ALL THAT HAS CHANGED! For the first time in my life, I feel like I’m in alignment with who I was created to be. With her support, I powered up my presence which landed me a 6-figure promotion!"

Qiana Cressman

"Carol is the only mentor and coach I've had that can get me from where I am to where I want to be. From helping me develop my brand to discovering what I was really meant to do in this world, she has guided me through successfully getting from point A to point Z! If you're looking for a coach... a real coach... who can actually get you where you want to be, then you have to work with Carol. It's that simple."

Twila Kaye

"I recently started working for myself as a corporate consultant after exiting corporate America, and I knew I needed to level up my presence and professional branding. Dr. Carol has such a powerful presence on social media and LinkedIn that I was inspired to contact her, as I see her as a role model. Dr. Carol didn't disappoint. First of all, she coaches with patience, grace, and considerable expertise, making you feel like you're her only and most valued client. In addition, her comprehensive "Brand Report" helped me rebrand my message, website, marketing materials, and my own personal image into an authentic, commanding presence that represents not only who I am but the business I'm trying to build. Dr. Carol provided so many insights and "aha" moments that educated me about Me. She's truly gifted. Without hesitation, I highly recommend her if you want clarity on your messaging and brand."

Dr. Anita Wilson

Every adventure starts by taking just one
step outside the box.

When you're trapped in a box and searching for answers, it's hard to imagine what kind of life might be waiting for you outside of it. But if you want to wake up every day excited to face the day ahead, firing on all cylinders, putting the pedal to the metal, with an image and brand that does the heavy lifting,  you need to kick the lid off and manage your mind so that you can get paid your worth, position yourself as a leader, and own brilliance.


I know what you're going through.
I've been there myself.

As a society, women are not taught to value, prioritize, or invest in themselves. Once we step into midlife (45+), we become invisible, overlooked, and undervalued. As a high-achieving 50+ woman and woman of color, I understand on the deepest level how challenging and discouraging it can be to define and distinguish ourselves within a patriarchal, misogynistic imperialistic paradigm that ignores us, disregards us, and wasn't even made by us or for us.

I've been a lawyer, a director, a dean, a consultant, and I've earned a doctorate focused on identity and gender development. My J.D., Ph.D., and my big stack of coaching, image, and brand certifications give me the tools I need to fully understand and describe how I broke free from the societal and outdated career narratives that were holding me back. I had to take charge of my mind, my vision, my career, and my destiny. I had to become a rebel.

Now, after working with hundreds of women,  I'm excited to show other midlife rebels how to make power moves and launch confidently into the next chapter of their professional lives.

Prepare to liberate your mind, level up your confidence, and stop short changing your talents, strengths and gift so you can leave your unique mark on the world.

Your legacy is waiting if you're ready to stop being invisible and take control of your career.

“I initially reached out to Carol to help me in my career transition from being an employed accountant to launching my own accounting firm. Working with Carol and her program was incredibly enlightening. The exercises make you come face to face with yourself, your true self, She is skillful in her approach and helps you get to the root of whatever is causing you to hold back and failing to realize what you truly have to offer the world. When I came into the program I knew where I  wanted to go, but there was something deeper holding me hostage and it was through our work together that I found my breakthrough. Carol gave me the tools and helped me to put systems in a place to find my voice, which I didn’t know I had lost,  as well as my color, my brand, and ultimately my tribe of potential clients. I am the proud owner of my own CPA firm and my work with Carol was instrumental. Thank you for helping me reach this milestone!”

Cherise Hammie

“I lost my way for a bit. Now I have clarity and a sense that I present the complete package to potential customers and clients. I know the value I offer and I now have a visual brand to support it. This makes all the difference in the world when I pick up the phone to make the initial contact or walk into a meeting for the first time. I'm not intimidated by others like I used to be. Now I've launched my podcast, am landing more speaking gigs and getting invited to more!"

Roni Sasaki

“I met Carol at a time when I was trying to clarify the direction of my career. Working with Carol was transformative, inspirational and empowering. She knows her stuff. We spent extensive time reworking my professional brand which served to strengthen my clarity and elevate my professional presence. We consistently worked on building a plan tailored to my strengths and genius which allowed me to develop and grow in my career. As a direct result of her coaching, I successfully positioned myself to move into an executive leadership role.”

Terry Cooper, JD

“Carol's impacted the lives and careers of over 600+ women through her executive coaching, leadership skills, branding expertise, knowledge of organizational diversity and culture and motivational (and highly informative) keynote addresses. Carol empowers us, women of color, to courageously step into leadership and executive roles and not just survive, but thrive in our careers.”
