Career Coach and Instructor, CTC
Vivian Miller, career coach and instructor at Career Transition Center (CTC) at Shaker Heights Library, joins the Board with an unquenchable thirst to assist our encore population ascend to their highest goals. She has been connected to the non-profit community for a number of years beginning with Cleveland Volunteers as a tutor and literacy coach for Experience Corp. Considering a career change from the legal community, she returned to school in 2011 to finish a degree in Information Systems Management.
Before graduation, she attended a workshop and attracted the attention of one of the co-founders at CTC. It was “love at first sight.” Vivian was approached after the workshop to consider a position as a Career Coach and Instructor. Having had a long career as a court stenographer and executive legal assistant, the transition to the non-profit community was a no-brainer from the standpoint of de-stressing.
Since joining CTC several years ago, she has been on an inspirational journey assisting clients to regain confidence after an unexpected separation from their long-term employment resulting in a mission that has become the joy of her life. Assisting clients from all economic spectrums has been an indescribable experience and created a passion to continue in this quest. Because of inspiration by CTC and work with EncoreNEO, Aim High Resume Services has been created by Vivian and is currently being developed and fine-tuned as an additional resource for those who are seeking assistance in re-entering or re-directing their career focus.
She has a son who lives in New York and Connecticut, and a daughter who owns two yoga studios in Brooklyn, New York. When not visiting them, she keeps herself busy with building her resume business, quilting guild, book club and anything educational, having graduated from Ursuline College several years ago. She also facilitates a study group on Sunday mornings.
