As an experienced Career Coach, I work with individuals from diverse social backgrounds to enable them to make often difficult career transitions. Many of my clients don't know what career they want to move into when they first begin their coaching with me but, at the end of the process, they have either moved into a career they find fulfilling or have a firm plan in place about how to move into a new career in the future.
My background is in Human Resources where I demonstrated an instinct for sourcing, recruiting, and retaining key talent for both a Fortune 500 company and a national non-profit organization. I am inspired most when seeing the progress that people make after being coached to manage difficult career transitions.

Working with Stacy helped me to define what I was hoping for from a career. I was always trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, but working with Stacy helped me understand that, deep down, I always knew what I wanted to do. I simply didn't have the confidence in that choice and the conviction to pursue my dreams until I was sure! And that's what I got out of my coaching sessions. I came to Stacy looking for a concrete career path, a 9 to 5. But I can honestly say I discovered much more. Stacy is generous, kind and her method was very effective for me. I would recommend her as a career coach to anyone looking for supportive guidance and clarity of PURPOSE. More...
Stacy is a blessing. I found her via a google search and I'm so thankful it led me to working with her. Stacy's guidance, through what I thought would be an overwhelming task of finding something I wanted to do, turned into an incredible journey. In our sessions together and the homework she gave me, I discovered what I wanted to do for a career. I had been struggling with this for a few years and Stacy's coaching brought me a profound sense of clarity. Before I even started as one of Stacy's clients, she suggested a job fair for me to attend. This showed me she was invested in my best outcome, even if it meant getting a job and not needing her help. I'm so thankful that job fair didn't work out. Once I started as her client, I learned that she's well connected and respected. Recently when talking with a now retired Boise-area HR professional, I shared that I worked with a career coach over the summer. This HR professional asked me if it was Stacy. When I said yes, she told me I worked with the best. Which I already knew, but I didn't realize how many others knew this too!I couldn't imagine a better career coach than Stacy. In addition to be certified from the International Coaching Federation, she is also a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources, has an MBA, plus vast experience as an HR professional. She knows what recruiters and hiring decision makers are looking for, and she'll coach you on how to best position yourself for getting an interview and beyond for a job *you* want. My only regret is that I didn't seek the help of a career coach sooner and meet Stacy earlier. If you're reading this review, do yourself a favor and reach out to her. Doing so was life changing for me. More...
I'm pretty sure no one EVER plans to hire a career coach because we're all SUPPOSED to know exactly what we should be doing ALL the time, right? And God forbid we should seek help in finding a job, right? I'm college educated, bright and accomplished. Why would I need to hire a career coach? The short answer is that the employment landscape has changed dramatically and the methods that I used in navigating professional opportunities are, in a word, outdated. Stacy Harshman was instrumental in helping me zero in on my best and most unique talents - and then providing the structure necessary to focus my efforts in the right career fields. Stacy has a long history in Human Resources - and it shows. She also has a keen understanding of social media - and how to use it to your advantage. Lastly, I want to say that I'm writing this 5-star review for Stacy because she's passionate about what she does and truly cares about the happiness and success of her clients. I would not hesitate for a millisecond in recommending her services to anyone! More...
