Founder | Executive Career and Business Alignment Coach 

Danielle Roessle, Executive Career and Leadership Coach, Denver, CO, & Washington, D.C.

Back in 2011, when working as a career counselor for high school students, I realized that I didn't feel fulfilled in my career.

I began the journey of looking for my life's purpose and dream job through participating in workshops and psychology trainings.

During one of these workshops, I confronted my experience of being bullied as a child and I found that the answers to a fulfilling career had been inside of me all along, hiding in my childhood memories. Through exploring my childhood memories, I could transform my pain into purpose.

Because of being bullied, I desire deep connection. One of my innate gifts is that I’m a gifted connector, helping individuals connect with themselves and one another. I'm also highly creative, facilitating unique experiences for individuals to ignite their fire within, find clarity, and career or business direction.

I left my school counseling job to start my business in 2014, and have helped hundreds of clients find career or business fulfillment by exploring their childhood memories.

Childhood memories are the doorway to understanding your inner compass — what comes naturally to you in your career, what motivates you deeply, and the impact you want to make through your career or business.

My hope for you is that by working with Inner Compass Coach and exploring your childhood memories, you have a transformative experience and find more personal and professional fulfillment.

Certified Career and Job Search Coach 

oach, Denver, Colorado, & Washington, D.C.

I began my career exploration journey in 2020 when I hired Danielle, Founder of Inner Compass Coach, as my career coach. Little did I know, not only was I looking for career direction, but I was also looking for a place to belong.

I was hesitant at first because I had done everything I could think of and was worried I would be given another assessment and sent on my way. It did not go the way I was expecting it to. Once I dove into my childhood memories when going through The Inner Compass Process, I had realized I had underused my motivating talents.

As a child, I was the kid who wore strange clothes, listened to different music, and read “weird” books. I saw the world differently and at a young age, and other kids made it clear that being different meant being alone.

But a funny thing happened: rather than trying to change, I got comfortable looking at the world through a unique lens. The benefit, I’ve come to realize, from being that rejected middle schooler is the amount of information that is available to people like me who can stand on the sidelines of a room and see those in the middle in a way they can’t see themselves — I can understand how the distinct characteristics of a person fit into the bigger picture because I have been an observer my whole life.

I only came to understand this talent when I worked with Danielle and went through The Inner Compass Process myself. I was able to figure out not only this unique perspective of mine, but also what I truly love: stories. Whether I am telling them, hearing them, or seeing them play out in the world around me, I love seeing every person’s life as an epic story because they are how we humans make meaning.

Now I get to help people who are struggling to turn the page and are stuck in this chapter, unsure where their story is supposed to go.

My perspective in life, strengthened by the isolation I experienced as a child, allows me to see and pick up on things in my client’s story that they usually don’t. I am practiced at seeing the world and assessing what is important through deep, intuitive listening to help those who are struggling to find their next steps. I provide a safe, caring, personalized environment that allows me to pull the important pieces of their stories, even if unrecognized by the client, and help create the fullest picture for them.

Danielle helped me realize that I did not have to change who I was to fit a job, but that there was a career where I could truly be me. I love this work because every day I help clients see the value and beauty in their own stories and help them write their exciting next chapter.
