Ray helped me realize my full potential. He showed me how I process information and what I’m naturally good at. You can tell that he loves what he does and it shows in how he helps people.


Ray is an excellent career coach. Within 4 months of working together, he was able to help me gain the clarity that for years I struggled to find on my own regarding the next steps in my career!
