Lesley O'Rourke, founder of Providence Pathway, LLC

My name is Lesley O'Rourke, and I am the founder of Providence Pathway, LLC.  My God-given gifts are listening deeply, being intentional in my risk-taking, setting appropriate boundaries to honor myself and others, and being grounded in my faith.  My ability and my passion allow me to go deeper than surface and to have conversations with substance and meaning so that clients can get to the root of their gifts quickly and effectively to then be able to create a path forward, whether it is in an interview setting, in a career transition, or in establishing a network to succeed within their career.

My clients have experienced that success in a myriad of ways, including phenomenal interviews, clarity on their authentic gifts, and forward progress and movement towards career goals.

I have almost 15 years of coaching experience, 7 years of creating leadership development programs for emerging leaders and established leaders, and 2 1/2 years of full-time recruiting experience. 

During my career path, I have stumbled for short periods of time, wondering how I could be more fulfilled with work.  I found strategies and resources that helped me get clear on my God-given gifts, and I stayed true to my core values of faith, family, and freedom.  This clarity allowed me to take serious action to propel my career forward and has helped me recognize the great need for individualized and group coaching to help others find this within their own careers.

Outside of work, I am a wife, celebrating 19 years of marriage, and a mother of 3 children.  I enjoy singing in my church choir, spending time with my small faith group, reading, and gardening. 


Here is what my clients say:

"Lesley really strikes a perfect balance between being empathetic and helping find you real solutions. I felt very accepted while talking with Lesley, and her advice helped untie some serious knots in myself and in my work approach that I would not have otherwise identified."                                              - J.R.

"Lesley's ability to ask thought-provoking questions enables me to think about the situation in a different light. I walk away feeling energized and filled with purpose and direction." - A.S.

"Lesley has been a great resource and source of counsel for me as I look to ensure the roles I pursue are aligned with my strengths and gifts. It is powerful and freeing to do what you love and know are God-given talents you can share with others. I am grateful for the affordable investment in myself with Lesley's program and I highly recommend her for career guiding and coaching." -K.S.
