This is the page where we get a little formal and business-y. I’d like to share with you my qualifications + experiences, and how I became a Life Coach (without boring you with my whole life story). However, I do think that it is important for you to know a bit of my background, so you can feel safe + secure, should you decide to give me the privilege of having some life coaching sessions with you.
Of course, you can ask me anything, at any time during our sessions together. Or just shoot me an email right now, if you’d like. If I don’t cover it here, just ask!
My professional qualifications:
→ Bachelor of Arts in Special Education
→ Master’s of Divinity
→ International Life Coach Certification
→ Special Education teacher (7 years)
→ Minister/Pastor in the United Methodist Church (9 years)
→ Mentor/Counselor for teens/young adults (2016-present)
While I have had many different roles in my professional life and personal interests, the same goal has remained the same: to inspire. Whether blogging, traveling, writing for a newspaper,being a mentor/life coach, writing sermons and small group classes to encourage spiritual development in a church setting, or writing individualized plans and teaching students with disabilities to believe in themselves, I have used my words, my images, my knowledge, and my experiences to motivate and encourage others to discover who they are and to create a life that fulfills their potential for happiness and service, and to find the joy in exploring the world.
All of this means that you can feel safe and secure that I have studied, trained, and been certified as a Life Coach within the largest Life Coaching organization in the world. My training has set high standards from which I work to ensure a professional, confidential, competent environment for growth + transformation for my clients.
