Had it with hustle culture
and #girlboss vibes?

Let's get real: the "rise and grind" culture that we've all bought into isn't doing anybody any good. If the pandemic has taught us anything it's that our priorities have been out of alignment for far too damn long. 

That's why I've curated Career Design School to meet you right where you are and get you out of whatever toxic environment I know you're desperately trying to leave. 

I see you. You've got far too much talent and drive to let hustle culture burn you out. Let's design a career that you actually love!

dread Monday morning so much that Sunday night your stomach is in knots and you can't sleep

daydream about quitting your job in a climactic, plot-twist sort of way

cry in the bathroom, parking lot, at home, etc because you just can't take it anymore

are constantly taking work home in the evenings and weekends and miserable about it

have been feeling like it's time for a change but have absolutely no idea where to even begin

hi there, i'm taina.

I help individuals and organizations align their core values with strategic action for impact and longevity. 


I do this through values-based coaching, leadership development, and DEI education. I leverage my experience in academia as a women's, gender, and sexuality studies scholar and my 10+ years of coaching to curate dynamic and liberatory experiences for my clients. 

I've worked in all kinds of industries from a brain tissue research facility to a luxury travel and tour operator. In each role, I was able to leverage my aptitude for leadership and my strategic thinking to create a work experience that worked for me, not against me. After working with clients 1-on-1 to teach them how to do the same, I'm ready to share my expertise at the cohort level with Career Design School.
