I'm a (frequent) coffee drinker. A mom, wife, sister, daughter, and friend. Lover of Disney, Broadway, genealogy, self-help books, bullet journaling, and home decor. A progressive Christian. Fan of 90's music, thrift shopping, and hand lettering. My favorite season is Fall (hellooo, pumpkin spice!) and Friends is my favorite TV show of all time.


My undergraduate degree is in creative writing and my master's degree is in human development & family studies (with a focus on college student personnel). Since graduate school, I've been working in higher education in career development and love, love, love (saying it once isn't enough!) what I do. I consider it my true joy & privilege to help students explore their interests, skills, passions, and values so they can create meaningful lives. 


One of the (many) things I've learned in this line of work is that people define "success" in a multitude of ways. My purpose in life is to help you find yours.


I'm eager to help you discover your worth, design your path, and embrace your career. Thrive Career Coaching offers one-on-one and group coaching (including virtual options) and personal & career coaching workshops.


Using a combination of principles, including strengths-based coaching, desire mapping, neuro-linguistic programming, life coaching, and positive psychology, I will help you:

  • get to know the real you by looking at your personality, interests, skills, and values,

  • identify career paths that best fit who you are,

  • learn tips & tricks for applying to jobs with a top-notch resume and cover letter, 

  • negotiate your worth, 

  • craft a career that brings you joy,

  • set soulful goals that will bring you joy - not just in your work, but in your life.

I also partner with yoga instructors, wellness and nutrition coaches, and creative entrepreneurs around the Rochester, NY and Finger Lakes regions and integrate my career coaching curriculum into peace-filled retreat settings.


i'm emily.

nice to meet you!
