Coaching for Journalists

Based on my experience as a newsroom leader and hiring dozens of journalists at national media outlets, I offer individual career coaching. In this incredibly competitive landscape, I've found that talented journalists can often benefit from outside coaching and guidance in order to take their careers to the next level. Based on the techniques and materials I use for my class at the Harvard Extension School,  this coaching can benefit professionals at all career stages. I've worked with everyone from young people fresh out of college, to 20-year veterans of the industry, to people who are looking to make a career change into journalism. I'm particularly interested in helping women, people of color, and those with non-traditional backgrounds advance in the industry.
