Career & Gallup Certified Strengths Coach

Welcome travelers near and far! I’m a Career & Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, Career Content Creator, Streamer/Broadcaster, and Digital Designer that has eaten plenty of pickle jars, bags of Cheetos, cups of coffee, and Boba tea monthly. My full career story can be found on LinkedIn where you can see how I prepared for a career in career counseling. As a Career Coach, I spend most of my time helping, empowering, and training millennials and generation z for employment.

When I’m not working, like many, I spend time watching movies on Netflix, PC gaming (Age of Empire II, Dead By Daylight, and R6), and preparing career content for my livestreams.

In the past, I tried out different side hustles from teaching, photography, and gaming – all of which I had enjoyed deeply, but I knew it wasn’t right for me as a career. I KNOW being uncertain and not having a clear path is frustrating, scary, and downright hard when you’re still trying to figure things out. Say no more, I know – which is why I studied the appropriate tools in helping people get UNSTUCK.

As a first-generation and Hmong refugee, I’ve had a share of being the first in my family to experience the job search challenges, not knowing what to do after college, finding a mentor, and even surviving the first year on the job. It has truly been a wide awakening experience and once I was able to FIGURE OUT how to align my values, interest, and skills – I was able to find a career path that worked for me in creating change, making an impact, and being innovative.

My work has helped over 3000+ individuals over the span of three universities of 25,000+ students ranging from undergraduate level to masters, PHD, and postdocs, including age groups between 18 - 55. This has been an incredible experience in seeing and designing strategies that would work best in helping career changers, job hunters, and unhappy job seekers working 9-5 make the shift to finding a career they love, grow, and enjoy.

Today, my mission and passion is to leverage my expertise in Career Advising, University Recruiting, Employer Relations, Career Development, Strength-based Coaching, and Counseling to help high achieving, career-ready early professionals and career changers find their purpose, market themselves effectively, and get a job they love.

I know how rewarding it feels to finding the right career and knowing the steps it takes to shift your life can be daunting. But once you are able to shift the mind from "I can’t" to "I’m going to", you are able to take control of your career, moving away from a dreaded job that chains you down.

So, I’m curious – What is one career choice you would pursue if you had the tools to do so?
