JENNIFER FINK

CEO and Founder of Fink Development


In 2011, I was working alongside some of the top organizational psychologists in the country. I loved the work that I was doing but I wanted more out of my career. I knew I had a lot of value to provide, but I just didn't know which direction to go to advance my career and I was spinning in indecision.


I hit rock bottom, then I went to see a career coach and had a lightbulb moment! It was the first time I experienced coaching and I thought maybe it could be a good blend of psychology and business and check all the boxes I was looking for in a career.

Shortly after that, I started to develop crucial skills to help me launch my career to the next level and become a coach. I learned the tools of business communication, I studied the ins and outs of the career transition process, I slowly implemented career development strategies to grow my brand and influence professionally and personally, and I trained as an authentic leadership coach to invest in myself and address some of my limiting beliefs.

My career started to take off! I began to build a valuable network of mentors and advocates, I was offered new opportunities, and I paved the path to my ideal career.

The ultimate game-changer for me was not only leveraging these skills to drive my career, but realizing that I could significantly impact the trajectory of others' careers by sharing my experience, learnings, strategies, and connections, and so I started my company Fink Development to continue that mission.

I love that I get to spend my days helping eager professionals gain the insights and skills they need to grow in their careers.


I can’t wait to work with you.

CEO and Founder of Fink Development


In 2011, I was feeling stuck with indecision between becoming a psychologist, getting a PhD in Org. Behavior, or becoming a human capital consultant, not feeling smart enough to pursue any of them, and wondering why in the world I was studying corporate finance in an MBA program.


I wanted more out of my career, and I knew I had a lot of value to provide, but I just didn't know how to make it happen.

I hit rock bottom, then I went to see a career coach and had a lightbulb moment! It was the first time I experienced coaching and I thought maybe it could be a good blend of psychology and business and check all the boxes I was looking for in a career.
