Gina Covarrubias works with people in STEM who are looking for some guidance and direction in their career path. She uses her own life experiences as a young aerospace engineer who never found the right fit in engineering to help others who find themselves in similar situations. She pivoted from engineering into a life coaching program and launched her business Deliberate Doing in Fall of 2019.
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Gina was expecting to find her dream job and career. Over the course of many types of jobs, she found herself feeling lost, disappointed, and frustrated. After taking a daring leap, she quit her profession and spent some time soul searching through introspection and self education. She stumbled upon life coaching not knowing anything about the field. It instantly resonated and Gina decided to pursue a life coaching program.
In Fall 2019, she launched her coaching and speaking business for the STEM individual who is experiencing career disappointment, confusion or despair just like she used to. Gina uses a holistic life coaching program to help people understand how mentality affects their career. While a career coach typically helps a client find their next job, Gina helps a client find themselves.
She shares the importance of creating internal fulfillment prior to seeking external fulfillment from a career.
