Career services is a profession can only be arrived at through a set of twists and turns.

 

The road I traveled combined community health social work with marketing and communications in the nonprofit space. While I thrived on deep, relationship-driven work with people, I also loved to write and create.

Storytelling was central to both roles. As a social worker, I held space for clients to reframe their stories as they took steps to transform their lives. As a communications professional, I presented stories that enabled organizations to make powerful change in the world.

In 2017, I advanced into a career services role, and there I discovered a way to combine creative work with people work. I was not only writing, I was giving people back their power. Protagonist Career Solutions was born shortly thereafter.

In the years since, I’ve found the empowerment clients experience to be universal. Whether someone is a C-level executive, a mid-level career changer or has been out of the workforce for decades due to disability, owning their story and taking charge of their next step dramatically shifts their experience and their results as they move through a transition. I’m grateful every day for the privilege to make that difference for people.

"Those who do not have the power over the story that dominates their lives, the power to retell it, rethink it, deconstruct it, joke about it, and change it as times change, truly are powerless, because they cannot think new thoughts."
