"I have one word for Dr. Shenita Brokenburr - Admiration!
Shenita is a trend-setter with clarity in her vision; is adept in determining meaningful ways to develop colleagues in the human resources profession, and is an astute leader.
Her executive coaching and mentoring is award-winning and she has an uncanny ability to work through complex issues and provide recommendations by asking the right questions. She knows how to find a resolution that is sustainable.
During the past four years, I have also had the opportunity, on a national level, to observe her presence in front of human resource professionals from very affluent universities – Dr. Brokenburr is inspirational with creative insight and direction that guides meaning and performance.
She has a talent that is truly amazing and is as enterprising as she is a woman of distinction."

"There are just a small handful of persons I have encountered during my life that have had a great influence on me – and Dr. Brokenburr is one of the best!
Her knowledge, skill, vision, training, and advice not only aided me in securing my dream leadership position but have assisted me in all other aspects of my career.
Dr. Brokenburr was there for each crucial step of the way, and I could not have achieved it without her. When I listen to individuals frustrated with the difficulty about the leadership search process, I know they have not met Dr. Brokenburr!"

"My wife has been in higher education for many years and wanted to make a career change. She found Shenita and immediately made a connection! We hired her for coaching, mentoring, job search strategies, and resume redesign.
I was so impressed with the work she did that I asked her if she would look at my resume even though I thought I was happy with it already.
Shenita blew me away with her suggestions, edits, and reformatting. I'm so grateful for the work she did and am excited about the opportunities that will come as a result of her efforts.
If you're looking for a true professional to guide and support career placement and/or advancement, Shenita is a top-notch professional and I give her my highest recommendation!

"I was referred to Dr. Brokenburr for career coaching by a family member. As I began making plans to pivot into a new career path, working with her was instrumental in helping me develop concrete action steps to plan my exit from my current career and look forward to my future.
The coaching was transformative. I had many a-ha moments and the process helped me move past insecurities and fear. I learned new strategies for dealing with self-limiting beliefs and saboteurs. We developed a strategic plan and action roadmap, and the regular meetings kept me accountable.
Just what I needed--- at the right time! Being intentional about my next steps and making a concrete plan helped me crystalize my goals and my self-confidence skyrocketed!

"I came to Shenita with a unique situation. I needed to begin developing my professional brand and wanted a biographical sketch and professional portfolio. Shenita developed several high-end visually appealing marketing pieces.
She also designed a creative backdrop for my LinkedIn profile and refreshed the look and feel -- consistent across all online platforms. She helped me choose the most effective wording to accurately describe my brand, my work and my personal mission. She put all this together in no time! She listened to what I wanted and translated that into a branding strategy. She is very creative and talented with an eye for what is visually appealing and virtually effective.
Shenita created a consistent look across my online brand.
Shenita is phenomenal at what she does creatively and very effective as an executive coach!

"Shenita has been my coach and mentor since I was a student in her career development class many years ago.
I needed to refresh my resume and practice my interviewing skills. I found her profile on LinkedIn. Shenita's style is direct, but she helps you get the results you need in the job market. Because she's in HR, she knows what hiring managers look for when they interview potential applicants. She can mentor you on how to sell yourself to your potential employer.
She is direct with a no-nonsense style. She doesn't sugarcoat anything, so you have to work hard. We targeted specific jobs and practiced interview skills. It pays off and I got results! I landed my new job with a higher salary just two months after we started to work together.
I learned alot during the process and Shenita shared many great strategies for how to pivot to a new career!
Thank you, Shenita!"

K. McNeil, MBA
"I came to Bridge Braintrust and Dr. Brokenburr for help in my job search. Our work together helped build my confidence and skills to handle myself in interview situations. I better understand the interview process at the executive level and the skills needed in the C-Suite.
Shenita taught me how to properly articulate my skills in relation to job postings; and how to focus on the requirements and develop my own personal value proposition.
We did several exercises that help me clarify my personal values, deal breakers in the job search and the rules of the game. She helped me understand the difference between wants and needs at work -- and the importance of a company's culture.
Shenita is relatable and can work with a variety of individuals and groups. I enjoyed working with her!"

"I highly recommend Shenita! I was referred to Shenita and Bridge Braintrust LLC by a trusted friend and colleague. As a retired school principal, educator, and now independent consultant, it is important for me to have an updated CV and materials that properly showcase my background, education, and experience.
Shenita was easy to work with; she took the time to get to know me, understand my goals and identify the main audience for my materials. She then personalized and packaged my background, skills, and experience as a subject matter expert in education, a consultant, and a retired principal and brought my brand to life! If you need a CV revised, consulting on your personal brand, or coaching, Shenita can do it for you…with excellence!"
