One of the things I also appreciated was that Daphne has the ability to break down complex subject matter and explain it in simple terms. I never felt lost and certainly felt comfortable asking questions! Plus she's got a very joyful, upbeat personality, so, the training was a lot of fun.

Career Coaching

Where do I start with this woman. She is the best coach ever. I couldn't of dreamed up a better coach. She has gone above and beyond what I would think is her duty as a coach. She found me resources and other contacts that I could utilize for my goals. She has helped me fine tune my skills and approaches for my career development. Sends me texts to check in on me and held me accountable on following thru on action plans to ensure I was making traction. She is always responsive to my texts or calls. What amazes as well is she knows what I need or what I should think about before I even do. Her situation analysis skills is not just for the current situation but she considers all aspects of of my life and what I want for the future. And if there's something I haven't considered she brings that to light as well. I couldn't have progressed so well in my career and even life if it wasn't for her.

I am the Assistant Program Director for a non-profit. We have hired Daphne to work with both high school students and young adults within the communities we seek to impact. Daphne blends professionalism, extensive knowledge on the education system and the scholarships available to each individual and a dynamic personality to produce a genuine experience. Be it in a large group setting or with a single individual, regardless of the age of the person in question, she always finds a way to connect, engage and leave the room full of smiles. We literally have sites begging to see her again. We intend to utilize Daphne Valcin's services with every student in our program. To say that I highly recommend her services would be an incredible understatement.
