Kind Words & Kudos

Here are some comments from schools, parents and students that I’ve had the opportunity to work with.

“After completing a summer business internship, I feel especially grateful for having worked with Deanna. Her positive, respectful and relationship-oriented approach to career coaching has been the single most important tool in discovering my career interests and preparing me for the corporate world. More than a year after working with her, I still reference Deanna’s coaching material weekly. Deanna is a fantastic resource for lasting career activation and comes with my highest recommendation.”

She was extremely helpful to him and I know he found it very useful to use her as a sounding board and to help him with his communications.

“I graduated college with 16 years of education under my belt and very little direction. By pinpointing my strengths, Deanna helped shed a new light on my academic achievements. We not only identified work environments where my unique personality could thrive, but we also brainstormed careers suitable for someone with my level of experience. My new level of confidence and network of opportunities is owed in large part to my time with Deanna.”

“Deanna Carlisle is an amazing presenter, connecting with students in such a profound way; students are responding to her passion, sincerity and her vast business-world knowledge she brings into each of her workshops and programs. She moves the students through steps of self-discovery, understanding of their individual strengths and talents; and then connecting to the BIG piece of the puzzle… “how to market the real you” through her integrated curriculum she shares in her workshops. This past year she has worked with counselors, career specialists and teachers in several school districts, to include Lake Washington High School, Issaquah, Northshore and Bellevue.”

“I would most definitely recommend this camp. It was much more encompassing and informative than expected. Having traveled four hours to the location, it was very worthwhile. I also appreciated “removing” my daughter from the everyday distractions so we could discuss and focus on what she was learning, what interests her, what her goals are, etc. It was a great experience for both her and I!”

“I cannot say enough good things about Deanna and her program. Because of her kind and genuine approach, our kids immediately bonded with her on a personal level. On top of that, her program is so incredibly well designed; and more importantly, applicable and effective. Furthermore, Deanna is a fantastic collaborator. We truly were partners as we utilized our respective expertise to personalize the curriculum for each student – and feedback from my kids was 100% positive. I strongly encourage any teacher to talk with Deanna if they’re looking to create a meaningful career readiness experience for their students.”
