Bill O. - Management Consultant for Technology Start-ups
When I started working with Vicki Zenoff, I thought I only needed help transitioning from my recently ended senior corporate finance job. I knew deep down that my career needed to change direction. The idea of returning to the big corporate environment was depressing. But how could I make such a huge career shift? So much of my personal value and family expectations were integral to my job. Vicki helped me sort through it all. She can take seemingly unconnected pieces of information, find patterns, and connect the dots.
I am now doing things in my career and life that I never dreamed were possible. Vicki provided the guidance, support, and outright nudging that I needed to break out of my comfort zone.
Laura C.- Senior Level Management
Victoria continues to help me figure out who I want to be when I grow up! Thanks to her guidance and coaching, I have been able to do the following while remaining employed at the same company:
- A two-year sabbatical in Mexico and Spain.
- Three “re-hires” by my current firm, each time with a raise and promotion.
- A three-fold salary increase in four years.
She has taught me the importance of work, life balance, and holding onto my core values.
Victoria is a mentor, spiritual leader, problem solver, advocate, library, and guidance counselor all in one.

As soon as I walked through your gate and into your wonderful sanctuary, I knew I was in good hands.
I am so glad that, after years of stalling for many reasons that always seemed very rational, I pickup up the phone to call you.
"What to do with my life/meaningful work/work-life balance" have been persistent, anxst-ridden conundrums for a long time. It is time to address this "purple elephant" lurking!
Noel - Marketing/Advertising Executive
I came to see Victoria because I was sick of my job, my boss, my clients and generally hated going to work every day. I would get depressed on Sundays just thinking about going to work on Monday. Something had to change, but I didn't know what I wanted to do. I knew that I needed to make a change, but I didn't have any direction.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I met with Victoria for the first time, but that meeting had great impact. Before we even began to talk about jobs, she explored who I was as a person, along with whom and what have influenced me most in my life. This was a critical step in her getting to know me better, but also it was a first step in a long series of self-assessments I had to perform to ultimately find career happiness.
Creating a Career Preferences Profile was a critical component to my career search. It prioritized my wants and interests in a way that kept me focused on what should really make me happy, and ultimately successful. If I started to talk myself into or out of a position, the Profile was what kept me honest with myself and forced me to stay on track.
Ultimately, my experience with Victoria has led me to a new career that I am very happy with. I enjoy the challenges and opportunities that I experience at work and it has made me a much happier person in life as well. It's nice to finally be able to enjoy my Sundays again.
I would recommend Victoria to anybody that is searching for clarity on what they should do with their life. She will help you find it.

Thank you so much for giving me a last minute session; it was great to hear your words of wisdom once again. I appreciate you always being a cheerleader in my court.
You are the best!
Janis - Higher Education
Victoria has great insight about people and she uses this insight to become my true champion. She challenges me to think more broadly and out of my comfort zone, while giving me energy for tackling a process that would otherwise be quite lonely and difficult. With Victoria as a partner, I think more deeply about what I want from work, about where I want work to fit in my life, and how to stay true to that. This is why I recommend Victoria to others and why I keep coming back to work with her.
Aimee - International Politics
I came to Victoria during a huge career/life transition and immediately she helped me "clear the fog" to see my goals clearly. She is knowledgeable on so many levels including career issues, relevant testing tools, and psychology-this holistic approach was comforting (at a time I needed comfort) and helped me feel solid and secure in my direction. The road to finding a job is not an easy one, but she was there every step of the way, and not only did I end up with a great job, I felt great about it. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is feeling a little "lost", she knows the way is in you, and she leads you on the path to draw it out.
Erin - Author & Professor
It is no exaggeration to say that Victoria Zenoff changed my life. I studied for years, even got my Ph.d., but the things I learned from a few months of working with Victoria gave me the clarity to see my situation from a new perspective and the tools to take action to turn things around. Why is Victoria so effective? It goes far beyond the fact that she has thirty years of experience in career counseling: she is an amazing listener, so that you can hear yourself in a new way; she has a structured process that gives you tangible results; and she knows how to balance between empathy and toughness when you need motivation. It also doesn't hurt that she has a great sense of humor! Working with her brought me to a place where I not only have a new job, but a new sense of purpose and balance.
John - Filmmaker
Thank you for all your help. I feel so much better/confident about where I am going with my career as well as my life.
Doria - Environmental Protection
Victoria, thanks for our sessions. They are invigorating, purposeful, and amazing. The road ahead will indeed be interesting.
Kate - Private Practice
I began working with Victoria at a time when I was unsure of who I was professionally. When my work with her ended, I not only felt that I had career direction and motivation, but also a better sense of myself and my place in the world. There is something about working with Victoria that inspires confidence and authenticity.
