"Working with Brenda at Profound Leadership has been a very fulfilling experience for me. I have grown in greater self-awareness and self-confidence in my career path and current role. Brenda is an excellent coach who understands how to leverage her clients' strengths to meet their career goals. Finally, her continued interest in my success is one of the things I have most appreciated about my experience with her."

EMILY, COO, seattle, washington

"I was in a low-paying and overworked job when I began my job search. I soon found out the saturated market had me at odds with many incredible candidates and I knew I needed help if I wanted to stand out. This is where Brenda came in. She assisted with my resume, coached me on interviewing skills, held my hand through some dicey negotiations, and even helped me discover new career pathways. She was there for me during the highs and the lows, helping me rationalize rejections and never losing faith in my ability to get the job I wanted. It was a tough road but in the end I landed at my dream company. We all need help sometimes and I’m truly grateful for the care and attention Brenda gave to me on my road to success."
