Chelle is a former corporate Talent Acquisition Director, HR Executive and industry insider. At the height of her 20+ year corporate career, she recruited, launched and advanced thousands of professionals at Fortune 50 companies. 

In 2020, she decided to make a massive shift and launch her coaching business, Best You Career Advantage. Now, she guides high-achieving but under-fulfilled professionals who are ready to dig deep and do the work, to make their own transformational journey.
