Cindy’s Personal Career Transition Story

After completing a B.S. in Education from the University of Minnesota – St. Cloud, Cindy jumped into the field of Technology and become a Software Quality Assurance Analyst. She has worked as team lead and manager and has provided strategic quality planning for large and small organizations.

Realizing she was unhappy and stuck in a career that didn’t fit, Cindy decided to do ‘career development homework’ and figure out what she wanted to be when she grew up. She obtained a Master’s degree in Human Resource and Change Leadership, emphasis in Career Development, from the University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis, MN and in 2004 started her own coaching and training business.

Over the years Cindy has kept her work fresh by specializing in both ADHD Coaching and Neuro-transformation Coaching.  Be sure to ask her about the latest ‘brain’ research!
