Your Coach

A Gallup Certified CliftonStrengths Coach, Ellie uses technology based on the science and soul of leadership.  CliftonStrengths is validated in over 5 decades of research, in over 50 countries.  Soul?  You will never have to pretend you are anyone else.

Ellie leverages your natural talents to both optimize your success and your wellbeing.  She began her career as a school psychologist, but feeling burnt-out in a role focusing on what’s broken instead of maximizing on what’s right with students, she pursued a second graduate degree in career education and counseling.  Since then, she has taught Pepperdine University’s Career Techniques and Applications. She has also taught Personal Development while coaching both individuals and professionals in corporate environments.

Program Description

Session 1:  Effective Resumes to Get Noticed guides you through the key components of a strong resume.

Session 2:  Linked In and Networking for Introverts and Extroverts lays out strategic relationship building examples in line with your most preferred interaction style.  Learn to gain trust with professionals and get noticed by recruiters.

Session 3:  Perfect Pitch, you will learn how to deliver memorable introductions about who you are.

Session 4 Best Interview Strategies guides you for the toughest interview questions, and you’ll be given opportunities to do a mock interview with the coach.


What Our Clients Say

I arrived in the United States only four months ago. And a few days ago, I had my first ever job interview in America. Unbelievably, from the many candidates, I was chosen for the position. I am totally sure if I did not receive Ellie’s help, I would not have answered even one interview question the right way. But because of Ellie’s coaching, I was completely ready and confident.

Clara Mahmoudi

Registered Nurse

Ellie’s in-depth knowledge of strength analysis has been eye-opening and life-changing for me. She coached me to better understand my strengths and blindspots and apply this knowledge to maximize my influence, deal with conflicts at the workplace, and rock the most challenging job interviews. Ellie is gifted in what she does. I think anyone who feels lost, undermined, and dissatisfied at work can benefit greatly from Ellie’s wisdom and coaching.

Why Career StoryBook Works

Career Storybook is a community of professional career coaches and counselors working with teams pursuing a common mission. We offer a collection of courses, activities, and success groups to take you from zero to happily employed. Relationship-based learning using reflective activities beats doing it on your own any day.

Career development can be self-directed (‘free’) or with a career coach (‘expensive’). We use an online group-based model that focuses on your needs and goals. Career Coaching is an investment in yourself. Career Storybook makes that investment accessible.

Personalized Learning

Our programs develop you as a person, a professional, or citizen while meeting your individual goals and interests. We offer personally meaningful learning experiences, and what is meaningful is engaging. And what is engaging has a deeper and more long-lasting impact.

Small Group Coaching

All our courses and groups have limited enrollment to ensure you get the attention you need and to foster trusting relationships necessary for you to risk growing. Mutual accountability drives creativity, problem-solving, and productivity. Coaches provide guidance while your group sustains your attitude and altitude.

Blended Delivery

We use the best of both learning mediums: online self-paced programs provide you the flexibility of time and place while saving travel and costs. Face-to-face or video meetings enable complex conversations, rewarding activities, and relationship development.

Interactive Programs

When you apply your new knowledge, skills, and perspective to interactive projects, you deepen your learning, your engagement, and have some good fun too. We use a variety of strategies: Problem-based learning, role plays, case studies, gamification, and fictionalization.

Write Your Story

Career development and job hunting are hard enough. If you are foreign-born or an immigrant, you need the support of a trained and supportive mentor. Let Ellie help you succeed.
