Doug Shapiro - Career Coach

Doug is amazing! He really helped me jumpstart my focus and goals when I was daunted at the prospect of entering yet another busy audition season. It paid off because I was able to book my Broadway debut! He is kind and supportive and a great connector of people. You couldn't ask for a better coach and friend." 
–Charissa Bertels  

"The foundation I work at experienced unexpected senior leadership changes. The formulating team i am a part of was directly affected. I needed to quickly acquire skills to help me successfully adapt to changed leadership changes. In his affable, non threatening but effective way, Doug coached me through a few scenarios to help me do my best work during a particularly stressful time."
- Cheryl Dudley
