"Sami is nothing short of a miracle worker. Her advice is tailored, practical, and grounded in real-world, in-depth knowledge of the UX landscape. What Sami offers is really a career roadmap, full of actionable options that feel bite-sized and achievable. My session with Sami helped me clarify my position in the market, as well as identify concrete next steps that I feel very confident will yield the results I'm after. In addition to Sami's excellent guidance, she's also a riot. I left my session feeling poised to make meaningful changes, uplifted about my possibilities, and a little sore from laughing in the process. What more could you ask for from a coach?"
