Andrea Liebross is a Possibilities coach – and helps people navigate their career paths to become the best possible version of themselves.  Sometimes it’s that we’re not clear on how our skills can pivot us to something new – and other times we’re not clear on where in fact we want to go.  Often, we’re just not willing to have those tough conversations.

It all comes down to being clear on what we know, what we think, and how we act.  She offers a fresh perspective on the possibilities we all have available to us.
