What inspired you to become a coach?
I have business communications teaching and court mediation positions. I already had clients requesting coaching services and one required that I had an ICF certification.
What specific areas do you focus on?
My niche is business and success.
What do you love most about coaching?
Watching people achieve their success points.
What’s your biggest coaching success story?
A client since 2016 has met and exceeded her goals from a just a seed idea. She came from a super introverted standpoint. By designing her own future, she bloomed and felt her inner strength. It visibly changed her in an awesome way. She became self-assured about her decisions.
What is the biggest obstacle you have overcome as a coach?
I look at things as moving forward, rather than obstacles. I go with the flow and take everything as it comes. I’m very cerebral and introspective and I think about my clients very deeply.
What is one of the biggest challenges you helped one of your clients through?
Confidence building – really knowing their worth and feeling things in their gut. It is awesome when they feel it and it is a positive strong connection. The client really takes ownership of the process.
What types of clients do you most like to work with?
Everybody! I am very open to everyone. I like to work with people who really want it.
What is your favorite coaching tool?
What message do you have for anyone considering becoming a coach?
I think everyone should become a coach. I can see it working for everyone, from parents to teenagers and more. It teaches us to be active participants in communication, rather than reactive and emotional.
