What People Say

Home: Testimonials

I cannot recommend Leigh enough as a Career Coach! Oftentimes as career women in STEM we have to navigate upward mobility on our own or simply just need guidance on what's next. I reached out to Leigh because of her background (former recruiter & having 10 years Pharma experience) & was not disappointed. Finally, there was someone who had knowledge of the industry & not only that - someone who had a passion for helping women discover their potential.
I highly recommend Leigh if you are looking for someone with a wealth of knowledge who actually cares.
