A Personal Word from Terrylynn

Welcome! I am thrilled that you took a few moments to visit our site.

Finding a new job or career is a major life change, one that can be filled with anxiety. Our philosophy here at GiraffesConsulting is that we all have the internal wisdom to meet the challenges that these life changes bring, whether those changes are expected or unexpected, gradual or sudden. My goal as a career coach is to help my clients tap into that internal wisdom and apply it to their job search. In this way, they can face their fears, create a plan, and land the job they want–a job that is rewarding, satisfying, and a perfect fit for them.

After my own journey of reinvention following a corporate merger, I created the Giraffes Theory, which gives anyone who applies it a whole new set of life skills in the face of uncertainty and change. Clients will learn to take a proactive approach to their job search so they can move forward powerfully into a job or career they love. It only takes courage and a plan.

Explore the website and feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance to you. Remember: Change happens. Take control!
