My Clients

"Shaunda has been instrumental in assisting me to find the right career path. She is able to listen and get to the heart of those she coaches. Shaunda is exceptionally knowledgeable and always brings energy and enthusiasm to our meetings. I would not have uncovered my true and desired career path if she had not coached me."

"Shaunda's greatest ability, in my opinion, is her capacity to listen for gaps in reasoning. Somehow through honest and caring consideration, she is able to bridge what you say to where you intend to go. She has certainly been a voice of objectivity in questioning times, has pushed me to re-evaluate my personal limits, and to strive towards a path of success and mastery."

"Upon looking for a professional update to my portfolio, appearance, and presence in the marketplace, I sought out the talents of Shaunda Thompson . Shaunda was not only professional and talented in image consulting, she added a personal touch of acceptance without judgement and a true vibe of care and love for me, as a client. I will be seeking her services on a regular basis."

"Shaunda went above and beyond as a career coach and I am very lucky to have had the chance to work with her. She listened to what I wanted from my career, and payed attention to my skills. She generated a strong candidate portfolio with me and I felt confident as a candidate. After a tough 4 month job hunt, Shaunda worked with me on my interview skills, giving me the confidence I needed to crush any interview. I became employed only 3 weeks after first meeting with Shaunda. She was my lifeline and my mentor for those 3 weeks, I could not recommend anyone better for coaching."
