Madelyn is truly amazing; she will inspire greatness in you if you are so fortunate to experience her coaching.”
Mohamed Kome

Engineering Program Manager

“I would strongly recommend anyone needing a career advisor to seek out Madelyn. I connected with Madelyn after my previous employer downsized. Meeting Madelyn was the best thing that happened to me during that time. Madelyn took time to review both my cover letter and resume and I received many callbacks as a result. I found Madelyn to be a great listener; she provided insight into areas of improvement to get me noticed by employers. Madelyn’s advice worked 100% of the time. As a mentor, as a coach Madelyn is “GREAT.” Thanks to our weekly meetings and her positive influence I was offered two jobs following Madelyn’s method. I only wish everyone had a coach like Madelyn. I can’t thank her enough.”

I recommend Madelyn without hesitation. “

She pointed me towards specific resources and suggested possible networking opportunities that I had not even considered. Her follow up was timely and organized. Her entire approach was not only helpful, but also extremely positive and energizing.”

Program Director

“After my company downsized, I decided I wanted to work in a more fulfilling career. My purpose in life is to help others and Madelyn opened my eyes to an entirely new world of possibilities by supporting me in articulating a career in doing what I love to do. While attending Lee Hecht Harrison she facilitated several courses I attended: Linkedin, How to Brand Yourself and Creating your Marketing plan. Madelyn was instrumental in helping to determine my career path and land my new fulfilling career. I highly recommend Madelyn to anyone who needs help exploring their professional options, she is an amazing person and truly gifted career coach”
Montrella Wilson, PMP

“I cannot recommend Madelyn enough as a career coach/ advisor for those looking to transition careers. When I decided to start looking for other career opportunities, I applied with the same old resume I have been using for the last 10 years and was getting little to no call backs. After working with Madelyn, two things happened: 1) I gained a clear picture of the type of opportunity I was seeking to allow me to narrow my focus and 2) I received a phenomenally updated resume that helped me showcase my best qualities. Within 2 weeks of receiving my updated resume I was hired by my new employer! (And I had gotten quite a few other interviews that I was in consideration for to boot.) If you want positive results in your next job search, hire Madelyn!”
Dustin Dellera

“Madelyn is a fantastic presenter. I have been in four classes taught by her and all were excellent. She is very knowledgeable and an enthusiastic coach. She clearly knows her material and is very upbeat. She is also creative in giving advice to job seekers. She was helpful to me in polishing my resume. I hardily endorse Madelyn as a coach and teacher.”
Craig Hixson

“The advice and training Madelyn provides produces results. Not long after incorporating her strategies, I got an interview with a top company for a position that I am very interested in…and very well qualified. A few days later, following her LinkedIn tips, I received an email from a hiring manager requesting a meeting. Take Madelyn’s workshops, execute what you learn, and, you will see results!”
