We work with local transition groups and can help you connect with the right group in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. Rely on our expertise to help build your network and get engaged.


We provide career advancement, transition and discovery support to executives and professionals on leveraging their education, experiences and strengths toward their next growth opportunity.


Career Building & guidance

Career Building can focus on a specific issue or we can work on broad skills improvement. We can also discover issues that may be preventing you from preforming at your peak. Overall, we provide guidance to help you work better with others.


Job Transition & coaching

We offer one-on-one personalized advise and support throughout the transition process. Whether you need assistance in planning, interviewing, preparing documents or just having an accountability partner, we are available to help.


Career Purpose & Discovery

We begin work-life in a job, then we move to a career. Finally, we transition to wanting a purpose or legacy - this is what we leave behind. However, not everyone knows their purpose. We help you in exploring your unique value and moving toward your ultimate goal.


We provide experienced, educated and certified human resource professionals to serve as agents for change, enhancement or development. Our specialized services include recruiting, outplacement and other HR expertise.



We partner with our company clients to provide customized, one-on-one outplacement solutions for employees needing transition. We work directly and virtually to leverage their strengths, education and experience for next career successes. 



Hire better employees faster, easier and smarter with our support. We understand the demand in the local job market and have an in-depth knowledge of local candidates. Our experience helps ensure you get the right candidate for the role. 


HR Services

Experience includes workforce management and planning, HR business strategy and department outsourcing. Custom services may include benefits negotiation, employee relations, culture development and engagement. Let’s discuss your individual needs.


You are not alone in your job search! There are a number of ways to become involved with transition or business groups that enable new relationships and offer advice. Let us help you connect with the groups that are right for you.


Group Networking and mentoring

Statistics show that over 80% of positions are found through networking. It then makes sense to spend 80% of your time networking and not in front of a computer. Let us help you find the local networking or mentoring groups that are right for you.


Accountability Networks

Accountability groups are important to help you stay focused. While they can give support, they also help make sure you are making progress with your search. We can connect you to the group or groups that will ensure your search is productive.


Group Interviewing practice 

You're resume is fresh, you've updated your LinkedIn profile and you've built your network. But are your ready for the interview? Be prepared with one-on-one interviewing practice or join our group interviewing team. Make sure you're prepared when you get the call!

From HR Exec to Career Leverage Advisor


For over three decades I've been a Human Resources Executive in Fortune 500 and start-up companies, varying industries, for profit and non-profits and in B2B and B2C organizations.

There is little that has occurred during this time that has not provided a source of training, skills and experience. Whether working through ramp-ups, shut-downs, moves or acquisitions, I've been engaged and involved from an HR perspective.

In addition, I have volunteered as a career transition mentor and coach working directly with executives and professionals of all levels and industries in the DFW area for the past three years.

As such, understanding the needs of professionals in transition is a natural progression for my talents. While it is disheartening to hear of someone being placed into transition, my capabilities and purpose is to help.  



I am a double graduate from Purdue University earning a Masters Degree in Counseling and HR Services, and a Bachelor's in Criminology & Psychology. I hold certifications as a Senior Professional Human Resources from HRCI and a Senior Certification (SCP) from SHRM.  



Career Leverage Advisors was founded because I noticed many individuals in job transition needed additional help in learning about themselves in order to advance and succeed in chosen career endeavors. Using my extensive HR and Counseling foundation I bring individualized assistance to serve the job seeker, those who want to improve their current performance or individuals wanting to discover career paths for building their legacy. It is my hope clients will find the real support and advise they seek to leverage their past toward future success. 

The second part of my service provides businesses and corporations with HR assistance for outplacement, recruiting, engagement and performance management. Services may be retained on a short and long term basis. By contracting Career Leverage Advisors, employers can obtain the HR services needed from an experienced HR professional without the need for headcount increases or budget overruns.  

Call me today to discuss how I can assist you or your company.
