I founded Providence Pathway, LLC to help you through your career change or career transition, guiding you on your journey of transformation, leaning on your faith and trust in God, and communicating your vision and mission for the purpose in your life.  I work with professionals who want to be unstuck and gain clarity and confidence on their goals and success in life.  I live in Apex, NC just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina but work with professionals all over the USA.  

Lesley O'Rourke, founder of Providence Pathway, LLC
 

My name is Lesley O'Rourke, and I am the founder of Providence Pathway, LLC.  My strength is in my ability to be relatable, to be intentional in my risk-taking, to set appropriate boundaries to honor myself and others, and to always be 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 begin to pull up weeds in their life and get to the root of the issue quickly and effectively.  Then, they are able to create a clearer vision for themselves, whether it is in an interview setting, in a career change process, or in establishing success within their career.

My motto is:  "You are who you are no matter where you are."  Behind that motto is the understanding that once you truly embrace who you are, the real you, that is where life and career success lies.  My clients have experienced that success in a myriad of ways, including phenomenal interviews, clarity on their authentic strengths, and forward progress and movement towards career change.

I have over 12 years of coaching experience, 5 years of creating leadership development programs for emerging leaders and mid-level leaders within a corporate business unit, 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 authentic strengths, 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 17 years of marriage this fall, 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 you 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.
