Career Coaching @ Year Up

Meet Our Coaches

When you are choosing a coach, consider the following ...

  • All of our coaches are trained and certified professionals specifically selected to work with Year Up

  • Think about what is important to you in a coach you work with. Review the full coach bios if you would like to learn more about them. If you have no specific preferences, you can indicate "No Preference" when you book your first session to choose based on availability.

  • The coaching relationship is about connection and fit. While a coach’s bio can give you a sense of them, your first conversation will help you decide for sure. You may choose to change your coach after the first session and restart the program if you like.
