More about Leona:
I am a seasoned Human Resources professional with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in career coaching, mentoring, full cycle recruitment of both clinical and non-clinical staff in healthcare and have a passion for matching the right people to the right jobs! I developed a love for making sure the individuals that I work with have clear and attainable career goals.
From 2015-2020 I worked as a Recruiting Consultant for Atrius Health/Harvard Vanguard and retired from my corporate role in January 2020. I started my career coaching business in 2015 on a part-time basis and relaunched full time in February 2020. While I am passionate about working with any and all professionals, I gravitated to people of color because I saw the challenges they were having getting hired and presenting themselves in a way that got results. They needed me to help them prepare and get ready for the professional world in order to ace the interview, build confidence and market themselves. And yes, that they belonged wherever they wanted to be! I wanted to make sure that they got the same opportunities as everyone else and understood the importance of knowing how vital it is to have a clinical staff in the hospital that reflected the patient population. This is one of the reasons why I went into the career coaching business - to reach out and help all people who needed that support and guidance AND much needed direction! While health care is where my expertise lies, I have guided and helped individuals in all industries!
I spent several years at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and my last 3 years there were the most memorable. I was the Lead Staffing Consultant for the Nurse Recruitment Team and not only did I lead my team and continue to hire staff, but also had the opportunity to work with multiple nursing students to provide career coaching, mentorship and overall encouragement and support. I worked closely with the UMass Boston Clinical Leadership Collaborative for Diversity in Nursing Program, where my team and I played an instrumental role placing minority students into positions at the Brigham once they graduated and took the nursing exam.
I am a woman of faith and believe that everyone deserves a chance to be successful. I love people and want to make a difference in the lives of those who aspire to do great things.
I’m involved in several community organizations, ie. the Brockton Area NAACP (the Education Chair), the Citizen’s Advisory Board for the Department of Development Services, Brockton Parent Advisory Council, and the Network for Women in Business to name a few.
I love to network, travel, listen to music, spend time with family and friends and taking in a good Lifetime movie!
