“Avanti Alliance has allowed me to reevaluate my skill set and find a job that compliments my life as the mother of two young children. I left my full-time corporate job and am able to work a part-time remote job that keeps me engaged and challenged professionally. The company and its founder understand first-hand the challenges of “having it all” and they are passionate about making working motherhood both attainable and positive. I am so grateful for this progressive company (Avanti Alliance) and would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family. They will help you each step of the way until you find your definition of success.”

Dana Underwood Career Coach For Women and Founder of Avanti Alliance Jobs Search

Hi I am Dana Underwood, Founder of Avanti Alliance.

I spent my entire professional career in a corporate setting working long hours at a job that was demanding but that I loved. When my son was born everything changed.

I realized I could no longer show up the way I had previously in my career and still be the mom I wanted to be. I felt forced to choose. I began looking for options. I wasn’t ready to give up my career totally but I couldn’t find the support I needed to figure out what an alternative could look like. In my mind it was either you work or you stay home.

I decided there had to be another way. So, I dedicated myself to helping women figure out a better way to balance a career and family. I help find flexible career options that fit their lives. I show women who are burned out from doing it all that they have options and help them take back their lives.

Why should I hire a career coach?

I started Avanti Alliance to help other women navigate how to take back their lives. Instead of trying to “lean in” to everything, prioritize what matters and build around that. That’s the key to feeling like you have a grasp on this thing called life. When we’re able to work toward a meaningful goal, not merely work a job to get a paycheck.
