Are you choosing your future, or is your future choosing you?

You’ve worked hard to meet the demands life has placed on you – contributing to your workplace, taking care of family, and saving for your own retirement. But, in a blink of an eye, you find yourself at the time of life where life demands are replaced by a question — What’s next? We are living in times of increased vitality and life expectancy but the word “retirement” often doesn’t fit as we search for a next chapter that uniquely feeds our soul and purpose.

🧭 Unsure as to what your ‘next steps’ are?
🧭 Feel adrift and without purpose?
🧭 Want to feel inspired and fulfilled?

Mid to end of career coaching – so you can figure out what comes next in your life.

When I became a so-called ‘Empty Nester’, I started wondering what would come next for me. I didn’t want a dramatically different life – but Sandy helped me find purpose and direction.

I recommend Sandy to everyone!

Client Success Stories

Sandy was able to shine a light on my strengths, my preferred work style, and how to create an individual path to success. Sandy has a true ability to bring out the best in people and make the process of career progression, and growth simple and realistic. If you are looking for change, shift or advancement, I HIGHLY recommend working with Sandy!

– Christine S.

Sandy uses a methodical approach and process that creates ease in establishing a well-laid-out career plan. Her optimism, support, and professionalism make her a joy to work with. Working with Sandy helped me focus, create direction, and achieve my goals in work and life.

– Cris D.

In transition after a 30-year career at a technology company, I found myself adrift. I found Sandy at Demarest Directions and sent out an SOS and she immediately responded, we instantly connected, and I have been so thankful ever since. With her steady expert guidance, I was able to reassess my skills and interests while expanding my professional network. I made a pivot from a corporate to a boutique consulting firm

– Stephanie M

Do you think that you don’t need a coach? Think again! Sandy Demarest has changed my life! I have spent the last 8 years trying to find a new professional direction. I read countless books and attended career change seminars, yet nothing seemed like a good fit. I felt hopelessly boxed into my current career and could not find a different job utilizing my skills and experience. I could only see myself professionally doing what I had learned in college 30 years ago.
I decided to contact Sandy after reading about her in the newspaper. Sandy skillfully guided me through the process of getting to know my true self again, clarifying my values and interests and then defining my skills. She coached me to become curious again! Thanks to Sandy, I am enthusiastically embarking on a new second career that never would have come up on my radar while doing my own research. Do It! You will not regret working with Sandy as your coach.

My passion is helping
others find their direction. 

Before I was a Certified Career Management and Executive Leadership Coach, I was facing my own experience in a toxic work culture and an empty nest. Through my own journey and helping hundreds of others find their direction, I’ve developed an approach designed to unlock your purpose and formulate an action plan to make it happen. Whether you prefer personalized coaching or a supportive group retreat, I’m here to help you find your direction.
