What formal education and training do you have?
I've completed two coaching training programs, one with the Fearless Living™ Institute where I received my initial and advanced Coaching Certification (CFLC III), and a second training program in Career Coaching. I'm a Registered Nurse with a Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing, and have taken Graduate courses in Stress Management, Health Psychology, and Creating Workshops. I have additional Certifications as a Professional Speaker and a Personality Type Facilitator.


How did you get into the Coaching Profession?
I've been drawn to some type of teaching or coaching nearly all my life. I started coaching patients to move through their fears when I was an Operating Room Nurse with the US Air Force. Yet it was in my subsequent 16 years as a Nursing Instructor that I found my true path of Coaching. In addition to teaching my nursing students, I started coaching them to take small steps to build their confidence and really shine and I loved that!


I eventually moved out of the college classroom to become a Staff Development Coordinator, where I could teach and coach college faculty to build their Inner Confidence in working with their students. Additionally, I began to speak to businesses and organizations on topics of Stress Management, Time Management, Personality Type, and Managing Change.


Then I found out about the Life Coach profession and I was hooked. Now I could live my passion to help others become their best. This is what I'd been doing all along! After my Coaching Certification, I began teaching Fearless Living Workshops to college students to bring coaching to the college world.


How long have you been a coach?
I've been coaching college students and educators for 20 years. I've been working with private coaching clients for 8 years. I'm also happy to be teaching coaching to coaching students as a Mentor in the Fearless Living™ Institute Coaching Program.

 
What are your interests in your non-coaching life?
I'm blessed to have a great and loving family and get to spend time with them. I've been happily married to the love of my life for over 22 years. I have a kind and industrious step-son, who's making his mark in the computer field. I love to visit my wonderful parents, married over 54 years, who keep teaching me what really matters in life. I have 4 sisters, and we get together for holidays and our annual "sisters weekend." As to other interests, I love to travel when I can, go to workshops on spiritual or personal growth topics, browse in bookstores, and spend time at the beach several times a week (now made possible due to my recent move to Monterey Bay, CA).



Do you have a favorite quote or saying?
All is well.    This one gets me through challenges, great and small. Its a great reminder to me.
