I’m so excited you’ve decided to explore my website! I hope you find the information you need to help you decide if coaching is right for you. If not, feel free to contact me. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.
I’d like to take this opportunity to share a few little known facts about me, since if you’re on this page you’re probably wondering who in the world I am. I was born and raised in South Africa and moved to the US in 2002. I’m an adventure seeker (think swimming with sharks), lover of travel, single mama and all around (self-proclaimed) fun person!
If you’re reading this right now, you’re probably in the same boat as I was a few years ago: stressed, frustrated, unfulfilled and burnt out. I was in a career that wasn’t the right fit for me but I justified it for longer than I should have, keeping me stuck. I was afraid that if I left I would end up in a worse position or I wouldn’t be able to earn as much as I did at that time. It wasn’t until I started to spend more and more time in my car in the morning dreading going in that I knew it was time for a change.
What got me through those times was…
MY FAITH AND A DEEP CONNECTION TO MY BIG WHY (my daughter and my desire to make a difference in this world).
But first, let’s rewind 6 years… I enjoyed great career success going from minimum wage to 6 figures in a short few years, completing a double masters degree (including my MBA) and negotiating salaries in excess of 30% of the salary ranges I was offered. I also became really good at finding fantastic job opportunities with Fortune 500 companies and landing more than 85% of the jobs I interviewed for. I learned how to build my confidence, clarify my value and what I had to offer as well as showcase what made me unique. This all worked out really well for me until about 6 years down the road. I had changed jobs once every year or two trying to find the right fit until I realized that career path was not really aligned with what was best for me, even though I was very successful in those roles.
WHEN YOU FIND YOUR PURPOSE, DO WHAT YOU WERE BORN TO DO AND WHAT EXCITES YOU, THERE IS NO STOPPING YOU.
The GAME CHANGER for me was coaching… It was through that process of self discovery that I uncovered what I really wanted to do; help other women never feel the same way I did (stuck, miserable and quickly losing hope). It is now my life’s mission to help you break free from anything that may be holding you back, step into your confidence and own your value in a way that let’s you shine effortlessly. Are you ready to have others value you for the amazing person you are, have a career you love and wake up feeling excited and energized every morning? I’m here to tell you if I could do this for me and all my clients (including executives at companies like Harpo Studios, Victoria’s Secret, Microsoft and Ameriprise Financial), I can help you do the same. No more settling, giving in to fear and uncertainty. It is YOUR time. You spend a third of your life working. Why not make it enjoyable, fun, rewarding and fulfilling?

Sharissa's coaching is empowering . The amazing work I have been doing with her over a mere 3 "official" sessions thus far have been profoundly transformative. In this short time, she has already helped me to build on what I already know and has masterfully drawn out clarity and self-awareness about the personal brand that I have been, often unintentionally, cultivating throughout my life's journey. As I prepare for the next chapter in my career, she is inspiring me to be a bolder and braver "me". Her authenticity, positive energy and professionalism is truly a gift. Sharissa has motivated me to be more confident and open to the myriad of known and unknown possibilities of the future. I am eternally grateful for her sincere support, expertise and wisdom! With heartfelt passion - onward and upward!Michelle R.
