Over the past 25 years, Christine Paciello has worked in various positions in the advertising and sales industries - and most recently in the public education sector, when she made her own career transition in 2016. While the experience and insight gained through each of her positions has been extremely gratifying, it was in her role managing a team as a Media Buying Director at a top Manhattan agency that she found to be priceless.
“In my role as a Media Buying Director, I was beginning to feel that some of the most satisfying parts of my job was from managing my team – the team building, teaching, mentoring and coaching were some of the most enjoyable parts of my job. I loved that I was in a position where I was given the opportunity to get to know my team intimately and was responsible to help guide them to find success in their professional journeys. It was truly humbling for me to know that my team eventually came to trust me enough – both professionally and personally – to help them become the best version of themselves.”
It was this passion for guiding and supporting people – women in particular – through their professional journeys that her vision for Herwork Coaching was born.
“I think it is critical for women to be empowered and equipped to take care of themselves – not only financially, but emotionally as well. We are natural caretakers – but when it comes to managing our time and taking care of ourselves, we are constantly last on the laundry list – if we make the list at all. “Herwork” is truly never done! I think we could all use some extra help finding ways to manage better. And not just from that glass of wine. But by supporting each other and knowing it’s ok to need and ask for some help at times.”
Christine has a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from St. John’s University and is a graduate of the Coach Training Alliance, an accredited coaching program recognized by the International Coaching Federation. She authors a blog about her professional and personal adventures that you can follow on Medium (or you can find a sampling on this website).
Christine was born in and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. “I was in Brooklyn way before it became the “it” place. I love its charm and many facets. Maybe I’m like Brooklyn in many ways – someone down to earth and authentic with good character and a little grit – but would welcome the chance to get to know you.”
