About this pro

I’m NOT your average career coach...instead people know me as a Career Transitionist! I position and empower individuals, unhappy at work, who are ready to make a drastic employment change RIGHT NOW! I do this through strategic career coaching so individuals have the courage and confidence to pursue a career that aligns with their calling!!!

When you hire me you get ALL of me, not only me in a professional aspect but me from a personal perspective. You will get a person who was gracefully broken by God in the beginning of her career...a person that knows what it’s like to go through a depression state due to someone or a company disqualifying them and saying no...a person who knows all too well how it feels to get rejection letters from employers, bomb the interviews, etc.!

The best part is you will get a person who decided the world wasn’t going to take her joy...A person that has developed key strategies on how to explain the value you bring and ultimately ace the interviewA person that thinks outside of the box when it comes to job searchingA person who has a passion for fashion and knows that your brand appearance matters when looking for a career opportunity and maintaining executive presence in your careerA person who has a gift to uplift, a gift to write in a way that your brand will come across clear on your resume so you can transition to a career that aligns with your calling...a person that inspires and empowers you to do you unapologetically...a person that will be your prayer partner throughout your career journey

I enjoy bringing happiness back to my clients when it comes to their career journey so they can begin to experience their version of career prosperity!

    I was extremely satisfied with my career consultation with Crystal. I found Crystal's advice to be genuine and thoughtful. Due to my consultation with Crystal, I have begun to develop specific career goals and daily life affirmations. I appreciated Crystal being a very positive spirit and having it radiate through our phone conversation. I also respected that she included religion and honestly told me about herself. I highly recommend The YOU Brand Academy!

    I was very satisfied with my career consultation with Crystal. Crystal is very personable so her help and advice came across truly genuine and she really cared about helping me. She was able to listen to all my random thoughts and ideas and organized them in a way that made sense. I also really appreciated her follow up email after the call which was extremely detailed and listed what we talked about, my goals broad and short term and how to go about achieving my goals. Since my call with Crystal, I have implemented thinking more positively and having daily affirmations for myself. I have also set up weekly goals for myself and I try to apply to at least 2 jobs per week, more if possible. Without reservation, I recommend The YOU Brand Academy!

    Crystal, Crystal, Crystal!! What can I say..... The advice you gave me before each of my interviews was AMAZING!!! I had 4 interviews with the same company, first with HR, then with 2 managers, and then a partner, who oversees the department I applied for. Crystal was there with me every step of the way. With the HR representative, I really needed help with what the salary range I should ask for and Crystal not only helped me come up with the range, she also advised me on how to sell it, which to me was most important. With the other interviews, Crystal just talked to me, asking probing questions about job situations that I could discuss, which not only were very helpful and kept me calm. The last thing we did before I went into my interview is prayed. Both Crystal and I are women of faith, and that prayer was the final and possibly most important tool that I received from Crystal and gave me the extra confidence I needed for my interviews. As a result of Crystal prepping me for my interview, I did get the job, with over $20,000 salary increase, and promotion! Thank you, Crystal, for the advice and I look forward to working with you in the future.

    Crystal enhanced my brand on paper by revamping my entire resume! As a result, I was able to submit it to a potential employer, received an interview and was offered a position with a great corporation!

Once the invite is accepted a questionnaire form is sent out.  The questionnaire form must be filled out at least 8 hours prior to your discussion because it will assists in governing the discussion that will occur during the YOU Brand Consult.

During the 30 minute call after introductions:

  1. We discuss your career point A (where you are now in your career journey) and your career point B (where you want to be or envision yourself being in your career journey).
  2. What’s holding you back from getting to career point b?
  3. What you have done this far to get to where you want to be?
  4. Happiness levels with current situation. 
  5. How ready are you to invest to make a transition in your career???!! Most people say right now and they are willing to invest in themselves which is key!!! In order to get from career point A to career point B a change has to occur and you have to invest in yourself!!!! So we then discuss the best package for their needs!
