About KD Vocational Services LLC

Kristin Dhayer


Hello!  I’m Kristin, the owner of KD Vocational Services LLC.  Every career journey is unique and valuable. I’d like to share with you more information about mine:

I began my professional journey as an educator, fueled by a passion for helping others learn and grow. Eventually I had to make a decision that many parents are faced with when they have children—what is the best scenario for our family?  I left the field of education and spent a decade caring for and raising my children.

When my youngest child began attending school I knew that I wanted to return to work, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do!  I found myself at the fork in the road, and could have used some career guidance, especially considering the significant gap in my employment history.

I embarked on a journey of research and self-discovery. It was during this time that I discovered the field of rehabilitation counseling and began graduate school.  After graduating with a newfound expertise but no work history in my new field, I faced the daunting challenge of entering a second career. With a decade-long work gap, I created my own job search strategy that ended with me working as a vocational rehabilitation counselor for a state agency.  While there I discovered a passion for employment services and I then managed a private vocational rehabilitation firm.  In 2015 I founded my own company specializing in employment services with a mission to provide guidance, support, and clarity to individuals facing the challenges of career change and job search.

My personal journey has equipped me with a unique perspective and expertise to guide you through your own career challenges.  I have been at the fork in the road with no clear path in sight.  I have overcome a significant work gap.  Over the years, I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with many individuals on their career journeys who had a variety of work histories and chosen career fields including: Education, Law, Manufacturing, Administrative and Clerical, First Responders, Management/ Supervision, Food Service, Hospitality, Human Resources, and many more.  I look forward to speaking with you and discussing how I can support you on your career journey!
