Sabrina McTaggart is a career coach who specializes in working with young adults to help ensure they make a successful transition from education to employment, and get started on the path towards longer-term career fulfilment.
Sabrina is based in Ottawa, Canada, and works with clients via web / teleconferencing.
Sabrina recognizes the enormous potential and inherent gifts in each young adult. By working collaboratively with them, she’s able to help put together the pieces of their own unique puzzle, as they make important career-related decisions that will profoundly shape their future.
Her own career path has helped equip Sabrina with the insights, empathy and experience necessary to ensure positive coaching outcomes. Although she recognized that she was in the wrong field in her first-year of university, she was apprehensive about making a change.
After graduating with a B.Sc. in Life Sciences from Queen’s University, Sabrina worked in the pharmaceutical industry, and finally took ownership of her future by taking a course in career planning. Her “eureka moment” came when she realized that her skills, interests, passions and experiences all aligned around this very field.
Sabrina also has a Master’s in Education (Counselling) from the University of Ottawa, and has worked closely with many young adults over the past 20 years, including her own two sons (now in their 20’s), and helped them work through the process to ensure that their initial career-related steps are appropriate and made with confidence.
Sabrina’s other passions include family and friends, reading, running, skiing, gardening and cooking.
