Ready to Make a Living + Do What You Love WITHOUT Giving Up Flexibility, Accessibility, or Your Wellbeing?
An 8-week training program designed to walk you through every step of navigating employment with disability or chronic condition.
Whether you're an established professional seeking workplace accessibility, just entering the workforce, or you're facing the end of your career as you knew it, CapAble Careers shows you how to navigate and build the career you deserve through simple, step-by-step strategies - so you can get back to focusing on yourself and enjoying life!
Who It's For
Budding or prospective disabled professionals who are ready to get, keep, and thrive in their careers (and HOW to face objections and obstacles)
Professionals at all stages and abilities ready to work in (and create) an accessible and inclusive environment, make a living, AND do what they love
Anyone who's had their career affected or ended due to disability or chronic condition and wondering "what next?"
How It Works
CapAble Careers is an 8-week journey of discovery and action delivered through a series of modules in written, video, and audio formats.* Although the program can be completed in this (or less) time, you will have access for 3 months. This provides for a self-paced approach as you make progress, discover big, and interact with fellow students on the same journey as you.
Along the way, you will also receive regular feedback from me during our weekly coaching sessions, where you'll have unique access to brainstorm and problem-solve. I will guide you as you work through assignments designed to help you prepare for, thrive in, and build the fabulous career you deserve.

Meet Your Coach
I'm Katherine, a musician, advocate, and career-creating genius! After disability ended my career as an Army musician (yes, that's a thing), I had no idea what to do next.
Nothing had prepared me for life with a disability, much less how to navigate the modern workforce with one. I spent two years having the doors to accessible employment slammed in my face and I was fed up!
In my search for the answer, I found more problems than solutions. Even as a highly-qualified candidate, the job market was all of a sudden more complicated, less accessible, and resources limited. And those those that DID exist fell short of what I really needed.
If this sounds familiar...
I've been there!
I know what it's like to be at the chasm of "what now?"
I have felt discouraged, frustrated, and stuck.
I have been denied jobs, lost jobs, and walked away from jobs because I believed there was no other way.
Employment with disabilities was a myth.
Here’s the thing…The folks telling you that you’re not allowed, you can’t, or you shouldn’t are WRONG! (yes even if you're the one saying them to yourself).
I finally realized I was not my limitation.
I had the power to take back control and demand better
I finally said "Enough" and decided to CREATE the opportunities I was being denied. I mastered the art of self-advocacy and negotiation, became an expert in workplace DEI standards, and developed solutions where before there were none.
And I built a career I love in the process.
I'm on a mission to make employment possible (and accessible) for all at EVERY stage of their career and lives!
By taking the guesswork out of the process, my goal is to ensure you find, keep, and enjoy the work you do - and together change the future of accessible living!
