You’ve made such a difference in my life.

Happy Clients & Co-Workers

 

From your style of writing and familiarity with presenting content across a variety of platforms (web, signs, print), I could always turn to you for examples of how I could improve my own work. Thank you for that. You also collaborated with so many different types of people and teams and it showed in your confident communication to the full spectrum of audiences. You had great relationships with colleagues and customers. You knew your audience and how to talk to them, in turn they knew you and had confidence in your message.

You've made such a difference in my life. Your warm support, your creative ideas, your accountability all have helped me to jump forward in the way I think about my abilities and freelance work. It all really IS a great adventure, and there's no need to be intimidated by the unknown.

Monique is collaborative, intelligent, a listener, open-minded, and organized. She’s a skilled writer; able to communicate about technical topics to a general audience. She is able to understand, improve, and document processes. She’s also a diligent and caring worker, no matter what task is being tackled.

Monique is a strong strategist and creative thinker, but has a career of experience with her hands in the weeds, which serves her role of wearing many hats. She has a keen understanding of collaborating and designing for process improvement. She is solution-focused and resourceful, and doesn’t hesitate to assist teams. In the time I’ve known her, I found her to be extremely pleasant to work with — always friendly, always smiling. She is a calming influence on the team and remains extremely gracious under pressure. She is reliable, adaptable, and doesn’t hesitate to help out where there is a need.

On interviews, since you and I did our coaching work, I was able to know exactly what I wanted in a job and not beat myself up because I “should” want or accept something else. I referenced the work we’d done in cover letters and during interviews (and often heard “wow, I should work with a career coach!) Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the conversations and career help. It’s not just the career you helped. I now work toward what works for me, personally and professionally. My friendships, familial relationships and interacting with people, generally, is so much richer.

Monique was a wonderful temporary addition to our team when we needed coverage. Every organization has its own acronyms and jargon, so it surely must have been like learning a second language at times. Monique never seemed flustered by any of it. She asked good questions and picked up new tools with little direction. She kept our momentum going in our social media deliverables and helped sharpen guest contributions to our blog. I enjoyed the new perspective she brought and the thoughtful suggestions she made to help us engage new audiences.
