I originally sought out Katie through Linkedin due to her background in both counseling and recruitment. I was unhappy in my current career but couldn’t pinpoint where I wanted to go from there. I originally reached out to gain more info on her own path and career as I was interested in a similar path. After speaking with Katie, I was able to pinpoint what about my current job was making me unhappy. Katie had me answer a few questions prior to our appointment, which allowed her to dig deeper during our conversation. She was able to open my eyes more to what I wanted in a career while also assuring me that my needs/wants were practical. She has the perfect mix of counseling background with business knowledge to provide great advice and, in my personal case, identify solutions to my career difficulties. With Katie’s advice in mind, I went about searching for a new job that fit what I was looking for, which I was able to clarify in our meeting. I ended up landing a job that is a perfect fit and I’m very grateful for all of Katie’s help. I’m very appreciate of the time that Katie took in helping me, especially since my problem was more personal/career related than business. She was very receptive to me reaching out and I’m thankful that I was able to talk to her when I did.
Katie is wonderful. I highly recommend her. She has the ability to assist me in focusing my attention on the essential things that I need to do to enable my practice and myself to flourish. She is extremely capable, and a warm and supportive person. If you are thinking about engaging her services, do yourself a favor and go ahead. You won’t regret it.
I was fortunate enough to find Katie immediately following passing my licensing exam. I wanted someone who could help me organize my time, hold me accountable and build my private practice. Katie is smart, knowledgeable, experienced and enjoyable to work with. I met my private practice goals for that first year and have the accountability and inspiration from my regular meetings with Katie to continue to grow.
My husband and I met with Katie as we are in the process of growing our Counseling and Life Coaching practice. We were looking for affirmation that we were doing things right, and we wanted to see where we could improve regarding our brand, website, and vision. We immediately felt that Katie understood us and cared about our practice. She was able to help us to feel more confident in the direction and vision of our practice. She also gave us tailored and creative suggestions of how to improve our website, organizational systems, and maximize our time. After working together, we felt like we experienced immediate clarity on some big issues that were looming over our heads which helped us to move forward quickly and with confidence – allowing us to spend more time focusing on our clients and our family. We would recommend business coaching with Katie. She’s warm, knowledgeable, focused, and passionate about her work.
Working with Katie gave me the purpose and peace of mind that I was lacking in my business. As my graphic design business grew, I realized that I needed help with the operations functions of my day – understanding my work flow, developing my work process and isolating areas for growth. Katie helped me identify and articulate the goals and strengths of my business, and was especially adept at finding solutions. Katie is an exceptional listener and a creative thinker, and knows precisely how to distill issues down to their essential importance. Working with Katie has given me the confidence and freedom to approach each day well-equipped to prioritize my tasks and to understand how I can be the most productive through myriad challenges. Katie’s follow-up materials and professionalism along with an ability to parse out details provide winning solutions every time.
I recently hired Evolve to Thrive to assist me in planning my staffing needs and clarifying roles of my team members to help us move into our next phase of growth. I was extremely please with Ms. Vernoy’s professionalism, knowledge and thoroughness at every step of the way. Katie provided some much needed strategic thinking around the org chart and coming up with a way to help move me out of the day to day operations. This created a real shift in how I see things moving forward and I appreciate Katie’s clarity, as I look to replace my current duties and move on to new heights. During all of our meetings and phone calls, Katie was always on point, responsive, a great listener and also knew when to take control to move me towards my stated goals and needs. Evolve to Thrive also found ways to increase support and infrastructure without increasing costs by clarifying team member roles.
Thanks for all your help, ideas and documents! I really appreciate the high quality level of what you provided.

Katie has been an invaluable part of me getting my footing as a mental health professional.
Working with her has given me a whole new level of motivation, confidence, and understanding
of building a brand and practice for myself in the community. I always look forward to our
meetings, knowing that I will not only have a blast talking to her, but I’ll walk away with so many
new positive ideas and goals for myself and my practice. I am so glad that I met Katie and have
been able to supplement my clinical support from my supervisor with her vast expertise and
support in the areas of marketing, networking, and business and career planning. I have
definitely already seen positive outcomes just from 5 months of consulting with Katie. I highly
recommend it for anyone looking to gain clarity and direction in their career!
