FROM OUR FOUNDER
Who are we? We are you.
When it comes to career stress, I can confidently say, we get it. We've been there. We've had moments of career confusion, friends boast about having the "best" job, parents tell us it's just a paycheck and our inner selves longing to be fulfilled. What matters is what we do with all the noise.
We say take it all in, shatter it and put the pieces back together to figure out what you're all about.
Then stay true to that.
We'll help you be accountable, because when you're authentically you and make decisions from that mindset, you shine.
When you shine, you're more confident, less stressed and excited about what's ahead.
I'm frequently asked why I went from practicing law to grinding away in start-ups to launching Shatter & Shine.
Easy: I get to be kind, honest and watch others flourish.
I get to be me.
I'm fortunate to empower my generation - from recent grads to those approaching mid-level positions - to feel good
about going to work. To help them feel connected and fulfilled. I get to make a difference in people's lives!
Thank you for letting me be your cheerleader, your sounding board and your confidante.
For letting me do what I love.

It had been a while since my last
interview and I wasn't very comfortable selling myself until I spoke with Heather.
She is a fantastic listener, getting me right away, and brought unique insights
about what employers are looking for. She worked with me to fine tune what
I bring to a job and reminded me how important it is to be confident
throughout the entire process.
Not only did my interview prep time with
her lead to rocking my interview and
getting the job, but I also found myself becoming more confident overall.
I recommend her to all my friends.
