  • "When I left my last job, I faced my first period of extended unemployment in more than 20 years. I knew I'd need some help if I wanted to make a late-career reinvention. Lori helped me bring my resume and presentation skills up to date. More than that, though, she helped give me the perspective and the confidence to navigate the emotional stress that comes with a job search. By listening to her advice and pursuing the path we created together — rather than simply searching for a job — I put myself in a position where the kind of job I wanted found me, even when I didn't know it was available. I also ended up enjoying my unemployment much more than I would have without her calming guidance!"

    Brian M.

  • "Lori is great at talking you through and teaching you the ins and outs of job searching, how employers view your online presence, what your resume says about you, and so much more! She also gives you a lot of really useful online courses, where even if you aren't meeting every week, you can still learn and improve...Lori is the right person to call!"

    Nicholas L.

  • "I can't say enough good things about Lori and the process of working with her. Each meeting with her provided new knowledge and tools to implement into my job search. Beyond that, I learned so much about myself through the exercises she gave me to do and the conversations we had. She was there every step of the way and helped my confidence to grow immensely. I wouldn't be where I am today without her skills, the tools she shared with me, and her support and encouragement along the way!! If you're looking to make a change, figure out what you're passionate about, or find the exact right job for you, contact Lori. You'll be so grateful you did!"

    Lauren F.

  • "Lori is a world-class career coach with a wealth of insight and a singular ability to bring out the best in her clients. After only two coaching sessions, I gave the best interview of my career, resulting in a job offer. I highly recommend paNASH to anyone who feels stuck or wants to take their career to the next level."

    Rachel Y.

  • "Working with Lori at paNASH was an invaluable investment. Lori helped me make enhancements to my resume while providing unique interview strategies that truly set me apart. In a short amount of time, I was made an offer from an organization that allowed me to outline the details of what will be my new career. I can't recommend her services enough!"

    Bonnie S.

  • "I highly recommend paNASH. Lori was so helpful in assisting me with my job search. Her methods work! She challenges you in ways you might not have thought of as you go through her process to better understand what are your strengths and what you are passionate about. You are more than just a client to Lori. She truly cares about you and takes the time to help you move to the next chapter in your career."

    Gordie D.

  • "I had a great experience working with Lori! She was able to answer my many questions and truly tailored our sessions to meet my needs. Lori provided great information - I left each meeting feeling like I'd just tapped into a wealth of insider tips that I couldn't wait to implement. She has a lot of great advice from her years of experience, and she offers information that I have not heard or read anywhere else."
