All of the Alumni Career & Professional Development coaches are closely tied to the school, having worked directly for Kellogg, earned their MBAs at Kellogg or worked in industry. Click on the coaches' names below to read their biographies and obtain their contact information.

Alumni may email only one of the Alumni Career & Professional Development coaches to schedule an appointment, and may work with that coach five hours per year. Over 95% of all appointments are conducted via phone, even for alumni outside of the U.S. Coaches typically book appointments two to three weeks in advance.
