Chief Executive Officer
When I talk with people I often hear how less-than-thrilled they are with their job. They rationalize staying with it for the money and security. Well, what if you could do something you love AND have the financial compensation you need and security?
I’m Jill Huggett. I found myself in that same scenario. Despite being successful, I was unhappy in my career. But I didn’t think I could do anything else than what I had been doing for 20 years. It had been a great career. I learned so much, worked with great people, developed personally and professionally, and had gotten to the levels I strived for as a Vice President managing a team. Then I hit a wall… it was no longer satisfying to me. I wanted more freedom, flexibility, and involvement with my kids' lives. I was successfully unhappy.
What I loved most about my time in the corporate world was helping others succeed so I founded Bridgepath Career Advisors to do this full-time. I have helped countless people to identify their career aspirations, develop skills, and quickly be on the way to reaching their goals. Nothing is more satisfying to me than seeing the great results from those I've coached.
