In her work at the Firm, Elizabeth had an innate and exceptional ability to work effectively with our
professionals in considering and evaluating their career paths and opportunities.
Craig Wittlin, Managing Partner, Harter Secrest & Emery LLP
It had been a long time since I’d interviewed for a job. I felt like I had a lot to talk about from my
career but wasn’t sure where to start. Elizabeth helped me to prepare for the interview by working
with me to focus my message and lead with my strengths. She is clearly strong at communicating. She
did a great job anticipating some of the questions I might get asked so I would be ready. As I was
answering questions during the interview, her suggestions about how I could frame my responses
came to mind just when I needed them. The time I spent with her really paid off. I went into the
interview confident and prepared…and I got the job!
Beth O’Leary, Chief Portfolio Officer, National Housing Lender
Elizabeth offered me actionable advice and mock interview experience at two key points in time: my first professional internship and my search for my first job following college graduation. I had never interviewed for a job or internship previously, and Elizabeth worked with me, step-by-step, to develop my story and promote my strengths. The time she took with me to conduct mock interviews and explore potential interview questions gave me so much confidence. Her suggestions on how to communicate effectively left me no doubt that I was prepared, no matter what was thrown my way. I received an offer for and completed a great internship with a Fortune 200 company and continued to go back to her specific advice when I was searching and interviewing for my first post-college position. I landed a job with one of the largest consulting firms in the world and I cannot wait to start my career in New York City! I could not have done this without Elizabeth’s advice, positivity, and support. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone searching for a job or building a career.

I met Elizabeth at a key point in my life. I was in a career transition period, and she
was a massive help in identifying my strengths, as well as honing in on what types of career
opportunities would be a good fit for me moving forward. She brings a wealth of experience and
knowledge to each and every conversation. Additionally, she is a great listener and possesses
outstanding communication skills. I am incredibly grateful for the guidance and support she was able
to provide during our work together, and I would highly recommend her if you are seeking someone
to help guide you during your next career search!

I was introduced to Elizabeth during a period of professional transition. I engaged her for several
sessions of Executive Coaching and plan to continue working with her. She is an excellent coach and
motivator. She keyed in on my strengths and helped me focus on areas of development. She also
helped me articulate goals and strategies to achieve them. She’s a pleasure to work with and I would
highly recommend her.
Chief Financial Officer, Health Information Organization
I had recently changed jobs, and I felt that something was missing. I was unable to pinpoint what
that was. Elizabeth and I worked together to determine the type of role and organization that I might
be best suited for, and she helped me to evaluate opportunities to ensure that my needs were met. I
ultimately landed a position that was the right fit for me, and I am grateful to Elizabeth for helping
me to get clarity regarding my career goals and objectives.
Lindsay Gozzi-Theobald, Chief Operating Officer, Human Services
Much like Elizabeth questioned her career choice, I too questioned what my path forward would look
like. After serving in the Peace Corps I enlisted Elizabeth help to determine what that path would
look like. Not only did she assist me with the hard skills of resume building and cover letter writing,
but she helped me dive deep into who I was as a person. I now understand the feelings and
challenges I was experiencing in my decision making. She taught me how to follow my passion and
moral compass to guide me toward a job that would allow me to have a positive social impact on
those that I felt deserved more in their own lives. I cannot understate how highly I would recommend
Elizabeth to anyone looking for guidance in their professional life.
Field Organizer, Political Campaign
Thank you for your personal evaluation, support and guidance in helping me along the path to my
next career adventure! The sessions were very helpful and insightful.
Deborah Bricker, Marketing Professional
Elizabeth’s in-depth understanding of the legal field is second-to-none. She worked with me to
identify elements that I needed in my professional life to feel more satisfied, and then helped me craft
a plan to incorporate those elements into my practice. Elizabeth’s expertise helped me work within
our law firm structure to find a creative outlet.
Senior Associate, Law Firm
Elizabeth’s interpretation of my job predicament was spot-on. She gave me the clarity I needed,
which helped me make a sound decision regarding a position I was offered. Thank you!
As I considered my law school options, Elizabeth helped me to consider what was important to me
and guided me through the selection process. As a second year law student, she provided feedback
on my resume, conducted practice interviews with me, and coached me to position myself as a top
candidate. I strongly believe she was instrumental in helping me to secure my summer internship
with Judge Bledsoe in the North Carolina Business Court. Her services are extraordinary!
Elizabeth Pellegrini, William & Mary Law School Student
Elizabeth has a natural ability to listen and understand what is happening below the surface, on that
deeper level. She helped me to explore perspectives that I had previously been blind to, enabling me
to find a new path through the challenge I was facing. Thank you, Elizabeth!
Peter Wright, Life Coach; Brisbane, Australia
Elizabeth was instrumental in helping me land my first job as a recent graduate. Throughout my job
search Elizabeth critiqued my resume to stand out, held mock interviews, and gave me the confidence
within myself to excel. Without her guidance and coaching the job search process would have been
much more difficult. I cannot credit Elizabeth enough with all the lessons and techniques she
provided me with, and I will continue to come to her for any future career advice. I highly
recommend her to anyone looking to further their professional career!
