A coach in your pocket.
I help young adults develop the people and personal skills to land a job, build a career, and have a successful life.
Danielle's young adult coaching practice helps neurodiverse young adults and employees develop professional skills: improved time management, executive functioning skills, social and communication skills needed to land jobs and build a successful career. Her coaching follows access to a 12-week online course that she has built to help keep her clients motivated between coaching calls and improve outcomes.
Her vision is that every neurodiverse teen and young adult in America will have access to personalized mentoring support for career success.
Our team is seeking a scholarship grant fund for underrepresented young adults in South Carolina to access FREE coaching through our company. To invest in our team or provide a grant for iElevate's coaching program and sponsor underrepresented young adults, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Danielle works with the whole person, not a diagnosis, and establishes a values-based, person-centered approach to tackling issues with landing a job and retaining or moving up in a career you love. Parent consultation for successful transition to young adulthood is included in her coaching approach, for those families who are still supporting a loved one transitioning into the workforce.
Danielle has successfully helped all of her clients navigate key transitions with work or relationships, and has recently been recognized by "Not your Mama's Autism" parent support podcast, which will release her recording soon.

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."

"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
26 years old
"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."
