Why Choose Dr. Kyle Elliott

You have 141,000+ career coaches to choose from. Why should you work with me?


I am a trusted confidant to some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley.

The vast majority of my business comes by word-of-mouth and referrals because I deliver results over and over again. My current and former coaching clients include:

  • C-suite executives (including CEO, CFO, CAO, CCO, COO, CMO, CHRO, CIO, CTO, CISO, and CRO) and senior business leaders (EVPs, SVPs, VPs, Heads, and Directors) at Fortune 100 and Global Fortune 500 companies (both tech and non-tech), hypergrowth startups (pre-IPO, PE-back, and VC-backed), large privately held companies, publicly traded companies, and multinational conglomerates
  • Executives and consultants at McKinsey, BCG, Accenture, Deloitte, PwC, EY, Booz Allen Hamilton, and IBM, among other top consulting firms
  • Coaches, songwriters, producers, and strategic partners to Simon Biles, Ellen DeGeneres, Jamie Foxx, Machine Gun Kelly, Usher, Meghan Trainor, 5 Seconds of Summer, Linkin Park, Lil Dicky, and other artists and A-list celebrities
  • Current and former direct reports of Mark Zuckerberg (Meta), Reed Hastings (Netflix), Gary Vaynerchuk (VaynerMedia), Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and other household names

I thrive at the intersection of tech careers, mental health, and social justice.

I know high tech and Silicon Valley inside out because I have spoken one-on-one with recruiters and hiring managers at nearly every Fortune 100/500 company. As a result of my bespoke coaching approach, my senior manager and executive clients have landed jobs at Meta, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and nearly every other tech giant you can imagine.

I frequently write and speak on the topics of job search and careers, mental health, and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging (DEIB). I have authored hundreds of action-oriented articles, and frequently serve as a trusted subject matter expert for major publications like Built In, Business Insider, CNBC, Dice, Fortune, Glassdoor, HigherEdJobs, LinkedIn News, Monster, Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), and U.S. News & World Report.

As a professional speaker, I regularly present to Fortune 100/500 companies, hyper-growth startups, and universities on professional development, personal branding, and mental health in the workplace. LGBTQ+ people, BIPOC, and members of other historically oppressed groups often hire me because I frequently speak about DEIB.

I hold a Doctor of Education in Educational Practice and Leadership; my dissertation centered on mental health and storytelling.

I proudly serve on the executive board of the Gay Coaches Alliance.

I will teach you how to rethink, reimagine, and recreate your career — and your life.

I am not for everybody. I run an application-only coaching practice because I am crystal clear on my Zone of Genius, which is connecting the dots between where you are and where you want to go. Most often, this is connecting the dots between your career story (and fabulousness) and the companies and positions you are targeting in your job search.

People hire me because I have the unique ability to help them slice through their limiting beliefs and own their fabulousness.

I empower you to rethink, reimagine, and recreate how you tell your career story, show up at work, and live your life.

I am deeply committed to your success.

I have a single goal when I coach you — to create a space where you can achieve what you never imagined possible. I want you to believe in yourself as much as I believe in you. You are truly fabulous and you deserve to own it.

After telling me your biggest goals and dreams, as well as what is holding you back from achieving them, I help you see inside yourself, slice through your limiting beliefs, and own your fabulousness. We craft a plan — together — to achieve what seems impossible.

Coaching is my craft, my calling, and one of my greatest joys in life. The only thing I love more than coaching is coffee. And, of course, Disneyland.

Oh, yeah, I am a proud Disneyland Legacy Passholder.

With every client (that includes you!), I deliver a “Disneyland Experience” — a fun, memorable, one-of-a-kind experience you cannot find anywhere else.

While your results will vary from past clients, they will be anything but ordinary. That’s my promise to you.


Kyle was amazing to work with!

His process helps connect what makes you fabulous with what jobs and recruiters are looking for. I utilized his Career Coach services and I have never felt firmer in my career goals and how to get there. By the time I was done working with him I found the work-from-home job I was looking for in tech… I recommend working with Kyle if you are feeling unsure of your career path or if you’re sure of your career path and looking to stand out in a sea of applicants. Kyle was organized, flexible, and empathetic to the job hunting process. He will never fit you into a mold but will design sessions around what will benefit you the most.”
