Coach Spotlight: Sue Ellison

Each person is unique with his/her own personality, qualities, and needs. I love building relationships with new clients because their relocation experiences are all so different.

For six years, I have served as a Career and Transition Coach, supporting job seekers and families during corporate relocations.

It’s best to take things gradually, accomplish one thing a day, and accept help when you need it.
