About

We know it’s hard to make a career transition. 

 At greyzone, we believe everyone should be in a career they love. In 2013 Tami Palmer left her full time recruiting management role to pursue an entrepreneurial path. Years spent helping people navigate career change, combined with her own career pivots, give Tami the passion and expertise to  guide others.

We know first hand how hard it can be and that’s why we created a framework to help you get out of the greyzone.

“Having a coach/cheerleader/friend in your corner that really understands what you are going through is invaluable. Finding a job is hard enough but walking that path with Tami made the tough days easier. We took all the inputs and kept focusing, a new position was the result.”
