I truly believe you should love what you do and do what you love! I’ve created a career around helping adults who feel overloaded and overwhelmed, generally at a career crossroads change, advance, return to and reinvent their careers so that they can find work/life balance and achieve their desired career success.

For the past 24 years I have been working as a professional in the fields of marketing,  education and business development, both as an employee and consultant. About 4 years ago I realized while I enjoyed my job and was good at what I did, I wasn’t completely fulfilled and passionate about it. So I started a self-discovery journey to figure out “what do I want to be when I grow up?”

(SPOILER ALERT: I am now a Career Strategist and Certified Professional Coach. I love what I do and do what I love!) 

I realized that my calling was professional career coaching. 

While I had been doing some coaching in my current roles, I decided I wanted to deepen my skill set with official coach training. I graduated from the vigorous, yearlong certification program, from the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) which is an International Coach  Federation (ICF) accredited program and am now a certified professional coach.

As your NextSteps Career Coach, I work with individuals and organizations that have reached a crossroads and need to get from here to there. This can vary from wanting to switch careers, (by the way: you are never too old to reinvent yourself and do a career pivot), to trying to get a promotion, to seeking a new business opportunity, to building leadership skills, to improving your health/self-care, to improving your relationships.

Regardless of your topic or challenge, together we will partner to leverage your skills, recognize your inner resources, build your strengths, maximize your potential and manage these transitions. 

As your professional coach, I will guide you through thought-provoking powerful questions and deep exploration of the answers, for you to find your solutions. The results are astounding! During and between coaching sessions you will realize shifts. You will find your head clear and focused, you will be smiling more and taking the necessary next steps to achieve your goals and dreams. And most importantly, you will know how to start showing up as your best self, in a more confident way, ready to be seen and heard!

Romy built her career in the professional space, until the day she was asked the question that would change her life. “What would you do if you won the mega-million dollar lottery. Would you go to work on Monday?” Romy answered with an enthusiastic “No!” and set out on a path of  self-exploration and discovery at the age of 43.
Romy began to dive deep into the possibility of finding true fulfillment in her work and the balance she was striving for with her family. During her own career transitions journey, Romy found professional coaching.

Romy teaches adults how to build confidence and effectively communicate their story while leaning into their value. She helps you clarify you career goals, build your career confidence, advance your career (climb that corporate ladder, break glass ceilings, develop strong leadership skills and get promotions) and land dream jobs. 
Through her own career transitions Romy has truly found her calling. Today, if she was asked what she would do if she won the lottery, she would still continue to run NextSteps Coaching and Consulting and her mission is to help others answer that same question with a resounding YES!
