WORK WITH ME

Hi, I’m Eliana,

AND I'M A MILLENNIAL CAREER COACH. I WORK WITH AMBITIOUS, CAREER-DRIVEN 20S & 30S SOMETHING TO HELP THEM REACH THE NEXT LEVEL IN THEIR CAREERS—OR COMPLETELY PIVOT INTO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. 

Whether you’re stuck and lacking clarity on what the best career path is for you or want to create a plan to grow from where you are currently, I can help. 

I know what it’s like to feel completely disconnected from the work you’re doing, feel a lack of confidence in yourself, and even question your ability to succeed. I felt those numbing feelings for years until I reached burnout and waved my white flag. That was my turning point. I realized I didn’t deserve to just “get by” in my career, I wanted more and I realized I could CHOOSE something different.  Read more about my story below…

MY POST-COLLEGE LIFE

IN MY MID- AND LATE 20S, I REALLY STRUGGLED THROUGH MANY ASPECTS OF MY LIFE. ON THE SURFACE, IT SEEMED LIKE I HAD IT ALL: A SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN SALES THAT WAS PROVIDING A HIGH INCOME, MANY AWESOME FRIENDSHIPS, AND A “HAPPY & STABLE” ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP.

The truth was, on the inside, I was a confused and miserable millennial. It didn’t start that way though. Right after I graduated, I got a job and quickly built my way up the corporate ladder at various companies. I worked for almost 9 years in the tech & media industries. I started off as a Marketing Coordinator at TINY e-commerce company. From there, I learned the importance of professional networking and made a number of career pivots ALL via my network. I NEVER applied for a job online. I went from digital advertising sales, to working for a large online publisher, to working in health care and finally to starting my own business via coaching. All the while I was climbing the corporate ladder from Coordinator, to Account Manager, to Account Executive, to Business Development Manager to owning my own business.  My career journey has taught me so much and continues to teach me every day. I learned effective negotiation tactics and grew my salary by more than 437%. Sounds pretty great right? It all was for a while but a few years later, that all began to change…

My job began giving me so much anxiety and I started questioning myself every single day. Was it normal to feel this miserable and this unmotivated? To feel THIS anxious about going to work every Monday? To wait all week for Friday just to have a night out or two on the weekends and then do the whole thing all over again? I felt completely disconnected from what I was doing and the work I was performing and asked myself — was this going to be the rest of my life?? I felt deep imposter syndrome, a lack of confidence in myself and questioned my ability to succeed.

THE TURN AROUND

I let these patterns overwhelm and drain me until I was completely burnt out and lost. Feeling down and confused, I knew I needed a change – It was my breaking point. At the suggestion of a friend, I decided to invest in myself and attended a personal development seminar. That became my turning point where I realized I didn’t deserve just “getting by” in my career and most importantly, I learned that I could CHOOSE something different. Through a lot of work and personal exploration into my values, areas of engagement and zone of genius, I discovered coaching.

The combination of investing in myself via personal development AND discovering a career I could be passionate about helped me combat my imposter syndrome and really nail my career mindset. I honestly felt like a different person. Coaching ignited something inside of me – a desire to work with and help others so I enrolled to become a Certified Professional Coach, began my practice and haven’t looked back.

SO HERE'S THE MORAL OF THE STORY:

I realized that coaching was MY thing that I wanted to do professionally and my goal as a Coach is to help others find THEIR thing and then learn the skills and tools to succeed professionally.  My coaching encompasses the 10 years of professional experience I’ve gained navigating multiple job changes and climbing the ladder on the corporate side. It also takes into account what I've learned from clients while building my business and hearing where they struggle the most when looking for a career they can actually be excited about. All of this has been combined with the skills and trainings I’ve learned as a certified professional coach to bring YOU the tools to become the professional, boss version of yourself. You have the ability to FIND a career you love and CREATE professional success! You just need the tools, systems, strategies and accountability to do so.
