Jessica did a fantastic job walking through my website and providing an unbiased, outsider’s view on how others might experience my website. She provided clear, actionable feedback on improvements that I might make, all in easy to understand and kind language. I never felt criticized or felt like the efforts I had put into my site were devalued.

My main concern was that I wouldn’t get my money’s worth if I enrolled for virtual coaching. In the end though, I can confidently say that every penny that I spent was worth it.

How is this different from all the other portfolio advice?

I’ve used my expertise and experience as a communication coach to break down the complex task of storytelling into manageable steps. I designed it to help creatives solve the problems I typically see in my portfolio storytelling reviews and support them through the journey from start to finish.

I just wanted to say thank you for the Portfolio Storytelling Workbook. It has helped me immensely in crafting a solid portfolio case study and I’ve even applied some of the approaches when making presentations. I found the checklist to be extremely helpful and I am thrilled to say that my portfolio was getting looks from hiring managers which led to a handful of interviews as well. I gave your workbook 5 stars because it was an excellent source for crafting compelling case studies with the audience in mind for my portfolio.


Want to chat about your options?

I invite everyone interested in coaching to begin with a free 30-minute Zoom chat, so I can answer any questions you may have. I’ll give you a few general suggestions, and you can get a feel for my coaching style. If it seems like a good fit, we can discuss the next steps to get you closer to your goals. If you’re not sure which service is best for you, let’s chat!


What if I’m not satisfied?

If at any point in the process you feel you are not getting the kind of help you need, you may cancel your remaining sessions and receive a refund.

How do I pay?

I accept payments through Paypal or Venmo. I’m also happy to send an invoice if you prefer. Payments must be made before any feedback is given.
