Author bio
Carol Vecchio founded the Centerpoint Institute for Life and Career Renewal in 1992. Her pioneering programs have positively impacted thousands upon thousands of people — many who couldn’t pinpoint their need at the time, but are now designing and living lives they love. Carol created the renowned “Natural Cycles of Change,” which is the foundation for her newly published book, “The Time Between Dreams” as well as the guiding force for many of the Discovery Groups at the center.

Carol’s expertise as a Career Counselor and passion for mentoring others in a career of Life Design earned her the 2010 National Career Development Association Outstanding Career Practioner Award. In addition to her new book, she has contributed to many articles and is a sought after speaker. She was elected Trustee to the 2013 National Career Development Association’s Board of Directors.

Despite her many accolades, of which the mentions above are just a few, Carol remains down-to-earth, full of wit, and passionate about connecting and helping those facing transitional challenges. She too experienced the journey of finding one’s calling, listening to one’s wants, and—lucky for us—she has faithfully and open-heartedly shared this roadmap.
