Working at home and in the community matters.

Have you devoted the last several years raising a family or caring for a loved one?  Are you preparing to get back to your profession or explore a new one? If so, I can help you transition back to the workplace armed with newly found confidence and well thought-out strategies.

Taking time off to raise children, care for elderly parents or to earn an advanced degree is a rapidly growing trend. Time off for such a hiatus ranges from one summer to decades. Whatever your situation may be, it’s prudent to plan your best strategy for re-entering the workforce.

There are myriad options to consider: Full time? Part-time? Family friendly? Commuting? Telecommuting? Job sharing? Independent contractor status? Special projects? Work from home programs?

As a former HR professional, career coach and  HR consultant, I am familiar with employment options for working parents who want to consider all their options while raising a family or coordinating care for precious loved ones.  Together, we can devise career and employment strategies that will allow you to maintain a healthy balance in your professional and personal lives.
