From the moment I met Lynne at an NCTA conference in Charlotte, she has made the difference for me in my efforts to stimulate software development education in North Carolina. She took the time to understand what I wanted to do from a business perspective and connected me with organizations and individuals where I would have the most impact. I continue to seek Lynne's counsel, she continues to provide the guidance and, even more importantly, to give me the encouragement I need to keep driving for my goals. Her unique experience in both business and education have made the difference in my efforts and in the efforts of many around the state.

Lynne gave me the confidence I needed to push beyond my comfort zone and the accountability I needed to make things happen!

Catherine Hart, Application Trainer

Lynne Garrison helped me navigate the challenging waters of being a professional in transition and coached me along the way. With Lynne’s guidance, I was able to restore my ‘professional confidence’ through in-depth behavioral/motivator testing and detailed exploration of my strengths and weaknesses. She helped me fine-tune my resume, craft effective cover letters, and update my LinkedIn profile. Lynne also provided excellent coaching throughout the interview process and held me accountable for weekly tasks to aid in the job search process. I didn't realize how much I needed a career coach until I had one! I highly recommend Lynne to anyone in transition or considering a job change.

Brenda Steen, Communications Project Manager
NC Electric Cooperatives

I found Lynne’s services to be invaluable to me. She helped me reflect on my passions and opportunities before seeking out a position that is both personally and professionally fulfilling. Her weekly coaching sessions provided me with resources as well as opportunities for reflection. She never let me get down about the time I was investing in myself and finding that right position.
