My story

Kia ora, I’m Claire. It’s nice to meet you.

I‘m a careers development specialist based in the Waikato who works with clients across Aotearoa.

What has my journey towards a career in career development been like?

Like most people, I’ve experienced ups and downs throughout my career journey. I didn’t realise there was a way to map out a career ideally suited to me until I turned to a career development professional for advice.

What’s my “why”?

There is a lot of pressure on young people today to have all the answers for their future.

Walking alongside people on the journey of career exploration, planning, transition, and decision-making gets me out of bed in the morning. Passionate about helping others, I’m always striving to find new, innovative ways to help my clients achieve career clarity.

What qualifies me to help people like you?

Within any dynamic industry, there is always more to learn, and I certainly don’t know everything. However, I am committed to providing the best service to my clients to set them up for career success.

Aside from my personal experience, I have a Master’s degree in Professional Practice (Career Development), specialising in adolescent career development. I am also a professional member of CDANZ and co-lead of the Waikato branch of CDANZ.

To date, I have helped hundreds of adolescents achieve career clarity and develop a positive vision and goals for their own unique journey.

I’m excited to meet you and help you find your place in the world of work.
