The Blue Bee Story
As a mixed-race, adopted woman I have struggled with knowing who I am and where I fit in this world. Having moved several times during my life and starting from scratch in each new state, I have learned how hard it can be to manage career transitions and change. I've also experienced being the only person of color in the room, wanting to be recognized for my contributions and wanting to advance at work. There is a way to find the answers you are looking for and have the work and life you want.
Speaking from experience, the answers come from gaining clarity, inner-strength and enlightenment - those come from knowing yourself and your goals. The core of the human experience is developed mentally, physically, and spiritually. All impact our behaviors, choices, decisions, and actions. Through coaching I love helping women of color gain new tools, strategies and insights to manage change.
At Blue Bee, you will find that all of these elements are supported. What grounds this firm is faith, belief in our inner strength, and the desire to elevate opportunities for women. How? by serving as a coach and partner on their personal and professional growth journey.
