Meet Your Career Coach

I am Kris Plantrich, Certified Career Coach and Owner of Basil Coaching Services. As a 9-time Certified Career Coach, I have been instrumental in providing top-quality, laser-focused career support to thousands of professional and executive level clients.

Career coaching is my passion, and I truly enjoy learning about my clients, understanding their current challenges, assisting in clarifying their career goals, and improving their job search knowledge. I work to provide clarity, instruction, resources, and tools for job seeker success.

A little more about me; I am a Michigan native residing in sunny Florida, where I provide coaching to clients around the world. I deliver coaching to my individual clients and partner with executive resume writing firms and outplacement firms to provide coaching services for their clients.

Whether identifying your authentic brand, preparing for interviews, implementing specific job search strategies, or developing and maintaining a focused online presence via LinkedIn and other tools, I can help.
