Chief Transition Strategist
It is with honor and enthusiasm that I share with you the work of Joyce Auskelis, Chief Transition Strategist. Simply put, Joyce helps teens and young adults to "find their best fit." Joyce has an impressive "corporate world" background and her credentials include consulting with Deloitte, sales with IBM, training with Computer Associates and product development with Jostens Learning Corporation. Using these experiences and following her passion, she founded DefiningNEXT where she helps teens and young adults in various stages of their lives: high-schoolers exploring college options, college students who may not be fulfilled with the track they are on, as well as those who may be struggling in a career that does match their skills and talent. Joyce invited me to participate in the process she designed for working with clients, from taking the Highlands Ability Battery to sitting down in person for a discussion and analysis of my results. The experience was eye-opening and Joyce was beyond thorough and helpful. Joyce strives to help her clients discover their core strengths and abilities so they can make informed and thoughtful decisions about their future. Parents, I know you will enjoy the information and advice in this interview! Enjoy, and have a wonderful weekend!
