About Brett Ellis

Most of my life, I struggled to figure out what I wanted to do and who I wanted to be. Throughout my years in education, I have learned that my true purpose is to help others discover and thrive in their own passions.

"Be the person you needed when you were younger. ~ Ayesha Siddiqi"

After much research in career development and coaching, I learned that the industry is dominated by middle-aged professionals. While many of these individuals have been great mentors to me, I have realized that my approach to careers is fresh, innovative, and different. I know how to get the attention of employers in today's competitive job market.

"If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old. ~ Peter Drucker"

My goal has always been to make career development an exciting process. This is easy to see in my client 1-on-1s and the resumes, cover letters, and presentations I create. When working with or speaking to my clients and students I often hear things like, "You can tell this is what you were meant to do." I love helping others achieve their career goals, and this will be reflected in any service I provide for clients.

Fun Facts

When I'm not helping others achieve their career goals, I love surround myself with:

  • Friends & Family: These people have never doubted my dreams, they push me to be better everyday, and they are the reason I am able to do what I do.

  • Music: I go to at least 2 concerts each month, I'm always looking for that next up-and-coming talent, and I would still love to work in the music business some day.

  • Art: My first business venture was painting decorative paddles for fraternities & sororities, I visit Miami every year for Art Week, and I have even curated 2 art shows.
