Meet Our Coaches

Meike Hennon

Strengths Coach

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Are you tired of feeling tired by your work?

Have you thought about other career paths but been too intimidated to turn those ideas into action?

I empower my clients to turn those intimidating thoughts into action and follow their true career dreams. Change is not easy, but when you follow your authentic desires and get to know yourself the process becomes natural.

As a strengths-based career and life coach I will help you identify and own your strengths, and support you as you determine the career path you intentionally want to take. Together we will look at what things you do best, what you need out of your environment, how you can contribute at your highest and navigate your way into the role you want.

I look forward to being the coach who can help you build powerful self-awareness surrounding your strengths and support you as you leverage those strengths to GO AFTER the life you want to have.

Are you ready to go deep?  Are you ready to finally answer the questions of “Who am I” and “What do I want to do with this one amazing life I’ve been given?”  My passion is to help you, as my client, focus on answering these powerful questions and intentionally creating a life and career that will bring you the happiness you’ve been seeking.  I will guide you through a process of self-discovery and exploration that results in a powerful increase in your self-awareness and a renewed self-confidence in who you are and the value you offer.  I love to help my clients connect the dots of their life.  I look forward to helping you put all the pieces of the puzzle of who you are together, and bringing you the clarity you have been craving. Together we will strategize how you can use your new-found knowledge of self to intentionally move from where you’ve been stuck to creating the life and career of your dreams.

Silvana Gargione

Resume Writer

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Silvana is a fierce believer in the Shinebright process of unlocking potential through identifying and harnessing personal strengths.  When creating a resume, Silvana follows an individual’s potential for growth and the impacts they have already made - rather than leaning on learned skills or listed accomplishments - to best weave their personal story into their career history. Her resumes provide support to each client as a direct, conscience, and professional reflection of who they are and where they have been.  Silvana’s eye for empathy, ear for humor, and voice for persuasion will breathe humanity into each experience or milestone, making each resume eye-catching to hiring managers for all the right reasons.
