How Sage Came to Be
Soon after September 11, 2001, Barbara left the corporate world.
She spent the next two years serving on several local and national non-profit boards, pursuing additional professional and academic credentials, and examining her professional goals.
During this time, Barbara also provided job search coaching and facilitation services to dozens of mid-to-senior level professionals in transition.
In 2003, Barbara decided not to pursue a position in a large corporation. Instead, she launched her own business, Sage Consulting Services, to use the valuable skills and experience she has to serve smaller organizations with big ideas and limited resources.
