Working with Stony Brook students and alumni to create a meaningful life and a purposeful career brings meaning to my life. The best part of coaching is helping my clients see what they have instead of what they don’t. I empower them to dream big and recognize their strengths, interests, and gifts while helping them to see a clear path and create the necessary steps to make their dream a reality while making a living too. If you are interested in working with me, please come to a career chat, workshop, or appointment to get started. Contact Marie Parziale at
