Although I’m located in the San Francisco Bay Area in California, USA, all coaching sessions are done securely online via virtual meeting technologies or by telephone. I will accept some clients from outside the United States too.

Yes! The topics on purpose-driven careers, along with personal branding and leadership and entrepreneurship, are applicable to most people, not just to data scientists.

I have a broad range of experience outside data science to help you in your situation. My technical background also includes ERP customization, web development, and online ads. I’ve built eCommerce systems. I’m certified as both a Scrum Master as well as in CAPM project management. I’ve led Toastmasters groups, and can help you with your presentations and public speaking. I’ve been a career coach for over 11 years, with experience helping diverse people in ages ranging from 17 to 82, and in different fields from finance to marketing to project management to IT to product management to engineering.

Let’s chat! If your coaching request is for a topic that I’m not qualified for, or if I don’t have bandwidth to take on new clients, then I’ll decline your coaching request and will refer you to others instead. If I accept your coaching request, then I’ll offer you a guarantee for the coaching services. Check each coaching package, as the guarantee may be different for different packages.

Some companies may pay for this leadership coaching program to help employees with career development. You can inquire with your manager about it. We will provide you with invoices and receipts that you can use for reimbursement requests with your company. Note, your private information from within your coaching sessions with me are confidential, and will not be disclosed to your company or others.
