Career Coach, author, speaker, community advocate and friend.
Since 1987, David has developed and implemented career plans for individuals from many different walks of life, fitting their passions, personalities, skills and desired work culture. David believes strongly in “making your 8-hour work day work for you” – and for him, that means working directly with individual executives, managers and employees on career-development issues. In fact, he’s been sought out by dozens of individuals to help carve out their own coaching niche or private practice! Coaching individuals one-on-one to help them achieve satisfaction and success in their careers is what keeps David energized day-in, day-out.
David’s clients benefit from his experience in human resources, employee relations, recruitment and training, and development for Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits. He knows what it’s like to be on both sides of the interviewing desk – experience that translates in helping his clients articulate their real value apart from their resume, target a specific career niche, interview well and negotiate the best offer. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Human Resources from Webster University where he also completed graduate courses toward his MBA.
David is a firm believer in paying it forward to the community, serving as president of the board for a local nonprofit. He also hosts an annual fundraiser, with past recipients including Paws For Consideration (animal rescue), St. Patrick Center (homelessness) and Susan G. Komen (breast cancer).
David is a member of Society For Human Resource Management (SHRM) and National Speakers Association.
