Sandy Somers, MS

Sandy’s positive experience of transitioning to a second career in midlife enhances the service she provides as a career coach. After a highly productive career in healthcare with roles in clinical practice, education, research, administration and successful grant procurement, she decided what she wanted most to do with the rest of her life was work in the career field. Sandy became a certified professional coach and was credentialed as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation. She originally graduated from the University of Buffalo with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Arizona State University with a Master’s Degree in Community Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing. Sandy used the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® in her thesis and finds this personality assessment a powerful tool to use with people in their career exploration and development. In addition to her work with Wiederhold & Associates, Sandy is also an Assistant Director of Career Services at Arizona State University. When she is not working, Sandy enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She is actively involved in several community organizations in Phoenix, Arizona.
