Brenda Holley is a Miami native who grew up in Atlanta who spent her early (okay, very early) years raising twin sons and working in the staffing industry. The latter gig lasted 34 years. The former- a welcome lifelong commitment. She's happily married to hubby Paul (AKA The Bald Eagle) after a few false starts.
In addition to a strong executive business background, Brenda is a Master-Certified Coach with three coaching certifications and 20+ years of coaching under her belt. She specializes in partnering with:
Individuals in career change on all the aspects of getting their best job form resume evaluation to interview preparation and social media best practices. See more about this offering on the Programs page under Customized Career Coaching.
Entrepreneurs who've already stood up a good business in growing that business to the next level through her deep understanding of business development, sales, and all key aspects of growth from financials to human resources.
Executives in corporate jobs seeking the clarity of "outside eyes" to smartly navigate their career steps, evaluate their development needs and handle their jobs day-to-day with the deep emotional intelligence that's required today.
When she’s not partnering with clients on their careers or business growth, she spends her time traveling, reading, cooking, exercising, playing the piano (poorly just for now... there are lessons involved) and actively contributes to four animal welfare foundations as well as Feeding America.

I worked with Brenda over the past six months to help me refine my professional dreams. At the time, I felt stuck - unsure how to describe my future career goals or define my worth. I found Brenda's viewpoint on everything from job searching and networking to resume building and LinkedIn optimization incredibly helpful. In addition to our coaching sessions, Brenda shared several of her courses and other resources to build my skill sets along the journey. Each resource provided powerful insights to aid our ongoing discussions.
I believe finding Brenda is one of the best occurrences in my career journey. I am embarking on a new role, and I think this would not be possible without her guidance. As I was interviewing with several companies, she advised me on assertive follow-up questions that would best uncover the right opportunities for me.
Simply put, Brenda is the best! Her friendliness, expertise, and inventiveness make her a particularly valuable coach. Her guidance will benefit anyone who takes their career seriously and wants coaching support to optimize their journey.
