Client Reviews

Parent of 26 year old

"Danielle and the iElevate team have been a fabulous resource for our son as he has navigated postgraduate life during the pandemic. Finding employment can be challenging in the best of times, but has been especially difficult the last two years. The coaching sessions with Danielle and Maddie have kept Will positive and moving in the right direction toward achieving his goals during a period when he has often felt isolated and discouraged.  I highly recommend iElevate; they have provided the consistent support my son has needed both personally and professionally."

33 year old

"Under Danielle's guidance, I have made significant progress in overcoming my challenges with prioritizing and managing miscellaneous work tasks.  One particularly effective strategy has been to split one of our 1-hour sessions into four 15-minute weekly sessions to check in on the status of my miscellaneous tasks and identify which tasks I will prioritize in the following week. I would like to request that this accommodation be extended indefinitely."

21 year old

"Coaching is really important to me because it gives me the confidence and the motivation I need to complete goals that I set for myself. I have tried many different life coaches but Danielle has been the right one for me."

19 year old

"Because of Danielle's coaching, I learned how to better present myself in a professional environment, create a well organized resume, and seek freelance opportunities. I learned to organize my thoughts for better communication, and to add enthusiasm to my tone. Now, I am joining the army with great motivation, which will secure my education and future financial stability."

Interview with former client

"I needed help with goals and having someone to keep me accountable and check in on my career goals was perfect for me. My parents sometimes couldn’t relate to me, and it was great to have Danielle there as a coach I could talk to, who isn’t in my family. I’ve done counseling in the past, but this was more focused on career development and professional mentorship."
