Kristy Vail

Career Advisor, Undergraduate Careers


Room: WMC 2605



Kristy is a Career Advisor in the Career Management Centre, experienced Certified Professional Coach, trauma-informed practitioner, business owner & multi-passionate creative. Through one-to-one advising, career programming and workshop facilitation, she supports undergraduate business students and alumni with making meaningful progress towards their short-term and big picture career goals, while helping them develop more confidence in themselves as professionals. Before joining the CMC team, Kristy was immersed in entrepreneurship for four years where she focused on career & personal development services for introverted professionals and prior to that, she worked in the Real Estate & Interior Design industry for a decade.

Having a dynamic career-background herself and a life-long interest in human behavior, Kristy is especially passionate about exploring career challenges that involve a level of ambiguity or complexity. Whether she's supporting someone through a career transition, helping a job-seeker confidently articulate their value in an interview, or working with a quiet, talented employee to develop stronger communication skills, her priority as an advisor and coach is to be an active listener and a collaborative partner when it comes to developing tailored strategies and solutions that drive progress and lead to impactful results.
