"I want to go beyond helping people find a job—my objective is to help them discover what kind of work they truly want to embrace.
It’s a process of discovery—helping others and gathering information about their life and experiences. It fascinates me."
“In my experience, this combination of counselling and testing tools has proven successful time and again.”
