Marianne Karam

My name is Marianne Karam. I acquired my Bachelor of Arts in Education and Liberal Studies from Emmanuel College in Boston, Massachusetts in 2006. In 2008, I decided to obtain my CELTA from the University of Cambridge to teach English as a second language to adults. It was not until 2011, when I earned my Master of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies with a specialization in Social and Emotional Intelligence from the State University of New York that I truly began my journey as a Career Coach. I decided to further develop my educational background as a Coach and earned my Social and Emotional Intelligence Practitioner and Assessor certificates from Six Seconds in California.

My professional experiences include teaching English as a second language and career coaching in Beirut Lebanon, Muscat, Oman, and Dubai, UAE. On the side, I have written two books; Loud Silence and My Lebanon #nofilter. I have also had three art exhibitions in Oman and Lebanon: Led by a Child, World Unity in Abstract, and Organized Chaos.

Being a Career Coach is where I found my passion, my most natural state. Watching and helping students and clients pave their way to develop their career and personal lives successfully, gives me the most satisfaction. Equipping students with the necessary social and emotional skills needed to make it in an ever-changing, fast-paced world to become the best versions of themselves, is the biggest accomplishment for me.
