As an experienced career coach, Tiffani views the dreaded “career shift’ as a positive choice, one that will ultimately bring more fulfillment and a greater sense of achievement to those who pursue it. When she made her own shift years ago, it was certainly a struggle…but she persevered. Today, Tiffani knows that if she hadn’t been faced with the unpleasant realization that her career wasn’t going where she wanted it to, she might never have found her true calling as a career coach.
Tiffani earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biology/natural science from Southeast Missouri State University. She has worked in the public sector (government) as well as higher education and brings a clear understanding of the inner workings of both arenas to her role at Create Your Career Path. Tiffani’s coaching style is a unique combination of a holistic and “big picture” approach to counseling. She also strives to coach the entire person, not just a small part. Tiffani provides support where it’s needed, even if that doesn’t fall into the traditional scope of “career coaching.”
