Unsure where to begin? Start with a 45 minute conversation with Angela to discuss how coaching can benefit you. During the Discovery Session call you will discuss your current challenges and goals, and I will share how my coaching techniques and structured tools can accompany your journey.

I hired Angela Fresne after receiving a glowing recommendation from her husband (a cycling teammate).  I am not one to typically reach out to others regarding career decisions, but years of burnout and unhappiness in my job led me to reach out to Angela.  Angela was a true professional with a very caring and calm manner.  She systematically worked through my interests, both professionally and personally, to target a transition path.  I cannot recommend Angela enough!
