Compare my coaching to that of a football coach: I won't run the laps for you but I will instruct you on what to do, educate you on the importance of what you're doing, and motivate and support you while you're out there achieving. My job is keep you focused on the end result and remind you why that result is important.

Praise from clients

“Helena is amazing! Her work has always exceeded my expectations. Everyone that has reviewed my résumé or any revisions of my academic or professional work is impressed because of how well my skills are showcased. In addition, she is very professional and truly cares about helping her clients succeed. She is passionate about her work, ensuring that each of her clients' work is done with excellence and pride, and she will work with you to ensure that the work provided to you goes beyond your expectations. Lastly, Helena has a gift that is clearly shown by what she produces. I fully recommend anyone for BAI's services!”

— C. Thompson,

Harvard Alumni, High School Vice Principal

“Large family member, traveler, people watcher, adventurer here. LOVE taking pictures. Unfortunately, I suck at keeping them organized. BAI made sure they (thousands) were labeled properly, filed by topic/location and date, and stored within my Drive. I'm so amped to have everything so easy to get to.”

— J. Rodriguez, Arlington, VA

“Before coming to Helena I had no idea what I wanted to do for a career. I was in college for a business degree. After a few conversations and some assignments from her, we narrowed things down to Human Resources. She supplied me with tons of information regarding the different professional levels, specialties, certifications and cert requirements. She also provided soft and tech skills and other certifications to get that would boost my resume as a new graduate until I could get the more advanced ones. Whew! #MindBlown. I am literally doing EVERYTHING she suggested. I am so excited about doing it all. It feels so great to have clear direction now."

— A. Williams, 2022 Business Degree Graduate

I was laid off from my previous employer of nine years. I came to work at my new employer, Northrop Grumman, in the mailroom. Although grateful for the opportunity, my income had been cut in half... when I had a wife, infant, mortgage and other bills to take care of. Ms. Benoit stepped in and re-did my resume, assessed where I was and where I could go professionally, advised me on software programs to learn, purchased interview apparel online for me, and advised me on how to interview. I was promoted from within and now I earn all most four times my mailroom salary. She saw something in me that I hadn't seen within myself at the time. I will always appreciate the services of BAI for that.

— M. Robinson, Northrop Grumman
