Why I'm Passionate about Coaching
In 2002, my oldest daughter was born and I ended my teaching career to become a stay-at-home mom. When she was 6 weeks old, we moved from my hometown in Montana to Colorado - a state in which I knew 7 people. Then I turned 30.
Any one of those life transitions could cause an identity crisis; but the combination of them sent me into a year-long tailspin as I tried to figure out who I really was and what direction my life needed to take. If I'd known that life coaches existed then, I would have jumped at the chance to work with one. Instead, I muddled about, read books, tried new things, and took classes in an effort to establish an identity in my new normal.
In the past 14 years, I have been a ministry leader, Bible-study facilitator, English teacher for refugees, exercise instructor, speaker, writer, editor, and social media manager. Now, I've combined all those experiences with some training to become a life coach because I what I really want to do is help women find fulfillment in their daily lives.
I now get to come alongside those who are seeking purpose and encourage them as they take intentional steps to find out what they are created to do.
My husband, Bryan, and I live in Colorado with our two daughters. I'm active in my church - teaching Christian education classes, volunteering with youth ministry and singing on the worship team. For fun, I love to hike but am equally happy reading a book and drinking a cup of coffee.
As a coach, I'm certified through Lifeforming Leadership Coaching/Christian Coaching School, a program that meets International Coaching Federation standards.
