What recent participants say about our academy:
One of the most important gifts I gave myself this year was permission to be completely lost and admit it – without guilt and shame. Then I allowed myself to be “rescued” little by little by Hilary and her methods, by the patient coaching from a talented group of professional women who teach the skills I needed to acquire, and by the new friendships I made with women brave enough to show up and be vulnerable along with me. Thank you to all of them. Who knew what was waiting for me?”
Susan, Wilton CT
I just completed my first WLAM Career Academy with Hilary and I cannot say enough great things! She has developed a fantastic program which has helped me to move from a foggy-headed mom back to a clear-spoken and motivated woman looking for my next professional challenge. The tools she uses are tools I can use forever, and they have helped me to identify which life path I will go down next. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you Hilary! We are all very lucky to have worked with you.
“I accepted a job offer yesterday.
Discovering you & WLAM helped keep me positive, enabled me to believe in myself and not feel like I was too old to reinvent myself. The classes on resumes, job search and branding were all instrumental in positioning me for my next move. You provide a wonderful service and support system for women who are juggling the challenges of motherhood while continuing to move forward professionally. So glad I met you and I will stay in touch.”
