"We just completed the About U assessment for our son and it was amazing and unbelievable how well it figured out not only his personality traits but what motivates him, how others view him and how he views himself. This is an incredible tool for helping kids and parents sort out not only college/career decisions but also what your kid needs from himself and his environment in order to be happy, successful and fulfilled both personally and professionally.  I HIGHLY recommend having your teenage kids take this test and then take the time to go over it with Laura. It is well worth the money!"

"The Birkman Assessment is a truly extraordinary tool that really captured many components of my personality. Not only did it illuminate personal characteristics that I would have suspected, but it also identified characteristics that I immediately recognized in myself but would never have been able to identify on my own. It was more than just learning about myself. It was a process that allowed me to be more confident in naming the things that animate me and inflame my passions.

The most helpful part of the program was the meeting with Laura. She makes the results of the test completely comprehensible and also extremely practical. I really appreciated how the various components of my personality were turned into helpful, concrete guidelines on what kind of jobs would lead to the most fulfilment. The assessment itself is great, but the consultation turns the test into a phenomenal tool to employ in the job search."

"We have three children and Laura has worked with our two oldest daughters so far. The About U assessment is a great tool for any high school student looking ahead to their next step! The information and insights are helping immensely as the girls consider potential careers. Laura is great at connecting with students and opening their eyes to strengths and preferences that they may not even have been aware of. I wish I had access to this kind of information when I was in high school! " 
~ Michelle D. - Cincinnati, OH

"Laura has used the Birkman assessment for both of our daughters - one about to leave for college and the other a rising high school sophomore. In both cases this was a very valuable tool in helping them to focus not only on what they may want to do for a career, but also to realize what they need in life to keep them fulfilled above and beyond a day job. The assessment is also good at helping realize how others perceive you. Laura was very thorough, personable, and we were very pleased with the results."

"In the early days of my career, I was a client of Laura. She provided me with tremendous guidance and advice for future career development. Through her use of the Birkman Method Assessment, Laura helped me to gain insight into my strengths and to uncover what I want out of a career. For early-career professionals trying to figure out how to move forward and for anyone who is trying to decide on a career path, I highly recommend Laura as a career coach."

"If you need help with direction, finding a new career, or in continuing your education, Laura, is the person to contact. She has helped my son with understanding a deeper sense of self. He will be able to apply this information in completing his college courses as well as searching for a career. With the information he obtained and the guidance Laura gave him he should be able to manifest his dreams. Thank you Laura."

"Wow! I strongly recommend parents with college bound students utilize Laura's program. The goal is for 16+ year old high school students to better understand who they are and what makes them tick. I believe that with this knowledge your student will get through school quicker. Remember the average college under grad spends almost 5.5 years in school. Think of the economic impact if you can reduce that by six months to a year."

"Laura is absolutely wonderful. I was struggling to find a full-time job after graduating from college with a Psychology degree. I wanted to feel confident going after jobs that interested me, but I had so much trouble identifying exactly what my strengths were. Through the Birkman questionnaire and chats with Laura, I felt so much better about going into an interview and being able to verbalize my best qualities and abilities. I just accepted a full time position on Monday! Laura helped me prepare for my interview and nail it! I highly recommend her, she has so much to offer! Thanks Laura!"

"Laura is an expert at using the Birkman test to discern an individual's strengths and predominant interests to help guide them in career selection and business and interpersonal success. The analysis she provides is very helpful as an evaluation and recruiting tool, and is also quite useful for career counseling." 
~ Mark H. - Cincinnati, OH

"The college major/career consultation work that Laura offers is excellent! My high school senior son took the Birkman Assessment and we met with Laura for a 2+ hour consultation. She was very personable and quickly put my son at ease. She asked my son many questions and really listened to his responses, thereby making Laura's insights that much more valuable. Her explanation of the assessment was very helpful in getting both my son and I to think outside the box in regards to his choice of major. We now feel like there are more avenues to explore than we ever imagined! I highly recommend Laura and the Birkman Assessment process. It is far more personalized than anything students can receive from their overburdened school guidance counselors, and it will likely save both dollars and time as my son chooses his college major and ultimately his career path."

"Changing careers as an adult is difficult and scary, especially if you're unsure of what you want to do next. The About U report is a systematic way of examining yourself which seems so simple initially… but it turns out to be scary how "simple" a test is so accurate and insightful. The REAL value of this service came from walking through the results with Laura. It generated so many "ah ha!" moments…. things I never would have thought of on my own, even after taking the test. And, for me especially, it really helped to be proactive and get out of that rut of wondering how to move forward. I can't say enough about how worthwhile and helpful this process was in recognizing my strengths and guiding my new career path. Laura is a fantastic resource, not only for students but also for adults of any age re-evaluating their professional lives."

"I really appreciated my time with you thought you did a marvelous job with my report! For the first time in my life I feel a sense of direction. I got a 4.0 this semester and I am so darn happy! Knowing what I am doing with my life has helped me immensely. I have a purpose now. Thanks again!"

"I want to thank you so much for all of the guidance and kind words that you have shared with me. If it wasn't for the consulting I received from you, I do not think that I would have the confidence or clarity that I have now to pursue a career in a field that I am obsessed with and cannot wait to be part of. Thank you so much for your help."

"This About U consultation with Laura was excellent in giving my daughter some clear feedback as she prepares to transition from full time student to gainfully employed. We had some significant "ahas" as Laura wove together different pieces of the report. My daughter is so excited as she is seeing how she can leverage some talents she took for granted into meaningful work."

"Laura was interested, kind and fully present to both my daughter and me. I highly recommend her and the About U process. It's worth every penny." 
~ Leslie H. - Cincinnati, OH

"The About U career report really helped me pinpoint the ways that I respond to a variety of life situations.  By measuring my behaviors and needs  within the context of the 11 basic elements, I was able to easily recognize where my strengths lie and how I may respond to stress.  Laura walked me through the report and helped me to synthesize the information by recognizing my innate personal needs and highlighting areas where my strengths could manifest themselves.  By looking at my unique interests and through further personal discussion, Laura was able to make suggestions and generate ideas for potential career paths for me.  As a graduating college senior, I am at a pivotal point in both my personal and career development.  The About U career report coupled with Laura's keen insight gave me a lot to work with when considering and making decisions regarding my future.  The report is a valuable tool that I will continue to refer to, far into the future, when considering my path."

"My daughter is a Jr. in High School and the About U personality test has given her some great tools to prepare for the next chapter in her life.  She is just beginning to look at colleges and try to decide what she wants to study, and with all of the variables that the About U data provides she feels confident knowing what areas are her strongest." 
~ Chris K. - Put in Bay, OH

"The About U Report was a very valuable tool in helping our teens feel confident in their abilities. career consultantThe report helps them to consider their strengths and interests as they contemplate their choices in life as they get ready to go off to college.  We are very glad that we did it and we will definitely do it with our third child as well."
