Partner with a Coach Who's Been There Navigating the twists and turns of a career can be daunting, whether you're chasing a dream job, shifting gears professionally, aiming to sharpen your skills, or dealing with a challenging situation at work. That's where I come in. As your career coach, I'm dedicated to guiding you through every step of your career journey, helping you grow in ways that resonate deeply with your personal values. Why Choose Me as Your Career Coach? 1) My career hasn't been a straight, smooth line—it's been a dynamic story of highs, lows, and continuous learning. This experience equips me uniquely to support your growth, ensuring that your professional development aligns with your core values. 2) I've navigated a diverse career path, made transitions, and have climbed the corporate ladder from individual contributor to senior leadership roles. This journey has taken me through various industries, from consulting to client-side, breaking into tech and start-ups, and excelling in start-up, fast growth environments, and Fortune 100 companies. This insight is invaluable in helping you identify and seize the right opportunities. 3) Beyond my own career, I've actively coached, mentored, and advised others, supporting their transformations and helping them reach new heights in their professional and personal lives. Being in service to others has always been a core value of mine, and I hope to bring the same level of genuine empathy and care to your coaching conversations. Let's connect and embark on this journey together. Your path to success is unique, and with my guidance, you can navigate it with confidence, clarity, and a sense of purpose.

About Aleesha

Hi, I'm Aleesha! After 15+ years of leading brand, marketing, and research at mission-driven startups and technology companies (LinkedIn, Digit, Brightwheel) and Fortune 100 companies (Nike, Chase, J&J), I now work directly with individuals and business leaders as a Career & Leadership Coach. I take an integral, values-driven approach to coaching and specialize in partnering with those who are feeling stuck, seeking growth, or transitioning careers. Throughout my career, I have experienced my fair share of lows (getting laid off, feeling burnt out, being stuck in a toxic environment), highs (getting promoted, gaining responsibility, becoming a leader), and transitions (from consulting to client-side, individual contributor to people manager, interviewee to hiring manager, big company to start-ups, B2C to B2B, mentee to mentor, full time job to freelancer, and many more). And so as your coach, I pull from these experiences and guide you by asking the important questions all with the goal of moving you towards the career and life you want. I'm also a proud dog mom, amateur yogi, hummus lover, marketing & research consultant, and a new found minimalist after a 2-year roadtrip across 25+ cities.

Why do I coach?

I coach to make an impact and be in service of others. I achieved this clarity about my purpose and values from working with my own coach a few years ago, and I hope to be able to do the same for you--so you too can live your life, personal and professional, with more clarity, intention, and joy.
