My Story

How I Became A Coach

My Story

I always knew deep down that I wanted to be an entrepreneur. My first job at 12 was selling makeup door to door. It didn’t last long and I’m sure my clients giggled about my attempt to be an adult, but when I reflect, it held clues to the work I do today. After  25 years working for large financial organizations in branch management and human resources,  I ventured out to my sweet spot in 2008,  which is coaching.

Now with years of experience in varied sectors working from middle to senior leaders, I see the common challenges businesses and not-for-profits face and how they can impact people.We have everything  we need to be successful, but sometimes our chaotic world can blur the  lines of sight.  I am inspired by working with individuals and teams to build trust in themselves, find their strengths and take action to achieve positive growth.

Specialties: Certified Professional Leadership Coach through the  International Coaching Federation.  Team coach,  facilitator  and designer of leadership development programs, including, managing difficult conversations, navigating change and optimizing teamwork to name a few. Experienced facilitator for Franklin Covey’s leadership programs and 360 degree feedback assessments.  DiSC administrator and facilitator.

Caren’s efforts and expertise have started us down a path of renewable and improvement that we could have only dreamt was possible.

When we are finished with a coaching session I usually feel refreshed, confident and competent. I also feel like I can share anything with her and that is freeing.
