Work with Karina

When students attend college uncertain about their major or career plans they can feel discouraged, unmotivated, and purposeless. This often hurts their academic performance, delays their launch into the professional world, and leads them to spend more money and time on college than expected.

Is your child ready to learn how smart major and career choices are made?
I can help.

I offer workshops, coaching sessions, and downloadable resources that teach students how to make wise career and academic major choices. As a result, students are better prepared to make wise decisions about their careers today…and in the future. Here are some of the ways students can work with me:



The Career & Major Planning Lab (offered live in Fort Mill, SC)

This workshop teaches students the steps they should take to identify their skills, interests, and values, and research possible career fits. It’s the perfect program for students who want to find the right career and major on their own…they just need someone to show them how to get started.


Discover Career & Major Matches

This coaching program helps students identify careers and majors that align with their skills, interests, and values. The program is great for students who are just beginning to explore careers or majors, and don’t have a clear idea of what options they should consider.

Custom Coaching Sessions

These sessions are for students who have previously completed Discover Career & Major Matches or a Maximize College workshop, and want additional support with career decision-making, major selection, or college selection. These sessions are designed to meet each student’s unique needs.
