My Story

Hi. I’m Isabelle Peyrichoux.  As a Career Reinvention Coach, I’ve helped hundreds of people leave jobs they hated to find their dream career. I’ve worked with clients from around the world, from a variety of fields. I’ve had people in their 20’s and those in their 60’s seek me out for support. I believe you are never too young or too old to leave one career for a more meaningful one.

I’m passionate about this because I know the pain of spending day after day in a job that’s not a fit.

I spent more than 15 years looking for my dream career. I got a Master’s Degree in art history and archaeology, but that wasn’t it. I returned to school and got another Master’s Degree in Information Sciences. I ended up spending 10 years in user experience. My days were filled with research and analysis and the dreaded comparison…

I compared myself to my coworkers, feeling like I was never as good as them. I wasn’t analytical enough, not decisive enough, not strategic enough. I was always trying to fit the corporate world and the tasks I was asked to do, but I failed to measure up.

I thought this was normal and the way it was supposed to be.

For 10 years, I lived a dual life. During the day I did work that became less and less a match for my strengths as I explored my true passions. In the evenings and on the weekends I fed my interest in personal growth. I read books. Took workshops. Filled journals about who I am, my talents, my purpose. I knew that one day I would turn my passions into my work. I just didn’t know how. I eventually reached a point where I hated my job and knew I wasn’t living my purpose.

Then I got laid off from Yahoo! It was a turning point for me.

I started to explore ways to turn my passion for personal growth into a career. I did a lot of research and talked to a lot of people. I found that career coaching was the intersection between my calling and what people needed most. I went back to school (again) to study psychotherapy and counseling. I became a Certified Professional Coach.

Now, for the past several years, I’ve had my own business as a Career Reinvention Coach. I love what I do and am committed to helping people, like you, find the work you love.

Along the way I’ve discovered that the biggest reason people are unhappy in their career is because it is not aligned with their authentic self. Which is why I help my clients uncover their true self so they can find a career that aligns with their passion and purpose.

​If you’re like me, and the hundreds of people I’ve worked with, I know it’s not enough for you to have a job that just pays the bills. You are here to do big things. You are here to have a career you love while fulfilling your purpose.

​I am here to help you.
