Recently retired after 20 years of teaching at the undergraduate level and 15 years of pastoral ministry, I have transitioned to what feels like the capstone course of my professional career. Becoming a life coach is one of the best things that’s happened to me! It’s the peak of an often perplexing climb towards greater self-awareness that began in my early 20’s. Despite the dips and curves, I wouldn’t trade the journey for anything. The hike’s been challenging to say the least, and it continues for sure, but faith and courage plus insightful guides along the way have bolstered my personal development. So, all in good time, I am privileged to travel alongside others while providing support in the discovery process toward self-awareness and confidence.
