RIZEcareer is a mom and career coach founded company, created by Kate Privert and Marissa Shallcross. We created RIZE after spending several years juggling motherhood with our passion of helping people find fulfillment in their lives through work. We have both balanced being moms of 2 (fun fact – RIZEcareer is actually made up of the first initials of our kids’ names!) with having a career. Not only have our own journeys been different, but we have watched countless other moms navigate the balance of work, home and everything in between. We bring different backgrounds and perspectives but collectively are driven to empower mothers and their individual stories.

Kate Privert
Kate Privert is a career coach and Mom of two (the Z and E in RIZEcareer). She has a Masters of Education from Northeastern University and a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Keene State College. Kate started her career working in media sales and buying. While she greatly enjoyed her 10+ years in the field, she decided to make a shift to focus on the nonprofit sector. Kate was able to transition her sales and customer service skills to work in fundraising, and ultimately career education. As a career changer herself, Kate, is thrilled to be supporting Moms as they navigate their path through the professional world. Kate has over 6 years of experience coaching individuals on their career exploration, professional materials, networking, and development. She is also a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW).

Marissa Shallcross
Marissa Shallcross is career coach and mom of three (the R, I and C in RIZEcareer!). She received a BA in Human Development from Boston College and an MS in Social Work from Columbia University, focusing in the World of Work. Marissa started her career providing family counseling for adolescents and then for individuals and families affected by cancer. She then transitioned to career development (a love that developed as a student worker at BC’s Career Center), working in Higher Ed since 2011, where she supports students and alumni with their careers, including job search and networking strategies, application materials, and career exploration. Marissa has received training in many areas related to career development including resume writing, career assessments (the Strong Interest Inventory & MBTI), and career coaching. She is also a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW).
