Hi Karen,  Just wanted to thank you again for all your help with my interview preparation. It paid off and I was offered a nod with Surrey Fire Department and will be starting in May. Thanks again.  March 2018

I am now one of Surrey’s newest Career Fire Fighters. I start in July . Thank you for all of your coaching and experience, I know that it really helped me nail the interview…

Hi Karen,

It’s with great pleasure I am writing to let you know I have finally achieved my lifetime goal and dream of becoming a structural firefighter. I have worked continuously for nearly a decade building the best resume I could but was missing a critical piece and that was my interview skills.  You successfully taught me how to prepare and formulate answers which led to improved interview score and my confidence.  I cannot thank you enough you have contributed greatly to my journey and life passion.
