In addition to a whole heap of life experience, I have been working with women in difficult situations in person and through my blog, Single Mom Smiling, since 2009. I have spent countless hours over the last ten years interviewing overcomes and studying topics such as relationship building, finances, parenting, divorce recovery, fitness, PTG (post traumatic growth), and more.
You want to hire a coach who is caring, trustworthy, and well trained. Many will tell you I am all three, but the best way for you to discover this is to see for yourself!
As far as training…I completed my coursework through the Professional Christian Coaching Institute. I have ACC certification from the International Coaching Federation (ICF), which holds the highest standards of voluntary coaching certification in the world. I also use Masters in Education/Curriculum Development and my experience teaching kindergarten through high school and for a local community college to devlop course materials.
