Curriculum Vitae


Life/Work Planning Consultant – Life Designs, Inc.
January, 1981-Present

Life Designs has served 1,458 private, state, and corporate clients since 1981. Through careful and meticulous questioning, trust and rapport building, clients have been assisted in altering their lives in significant positive ways. Their periods of confusion and transition have been transformed into periods of personal development and change. Floundering clients have found direction, frightened ones, courage, and vulnerable ones, support. Using an individually designed blend of psychological reports, work evaluations, and professional experience, Life Designs replaces old life patterns with promising new ones. Clients learn to visualize appropriate, realistic, and personal self concepts that translate directly into changed behavior. The result is more clients entering training, college, and employment. Clients referrals are received from Kodak, International Management and Consulting Corporation (Guatemala), State Offices of Vocational Rehabilitation, The *Division of Blind Services, private insurance and rehabilitation companies.
