More About Me.
Prior to coaching, I worked in Higher Education for more than twenty years. It was there that I discovered that transformations can happen for anyone, anywhere, anytime. By all accounts, I’ve been successful. I seamlessly went from teaching to administration and quickly rose up the ranks from director to dean. As a former Dean of Student Affairs, I helped students model the lives they wanted and worked with them to overcome the obstacles that were keeping them from achieving their goals; yet, I was unfulfilled and unsatisfied in my own career and life. It wasn’t enough; I was NOT ENOUGH.
I chased a perfect, controlled world where everything lined up the way I wanted. Each day it became more difficult to keep up the facade. As I coached others on work-life balance and helped them reach their goals, my health and happiness suffered. I was more caught up in looking like I had it all together than actually living the way I encouraged others to.
I made a massive shift that has resulted in a more balanced, less controlled, and more fulfilled life. I still help people reach their goals. I simply enjoy it more. I travel! I laugh! I eat tacos! My mission is to get others to the place where they too can live from a place of action instead of a place of fear.
"I started working with Shelia a few months ago. I was stuck in self-doubt and unclear of which direction to go as I embarked on a new career endeavor. Shelia helped me clearly see when/how I tend to respond to various circumstances and experiences. I received helpful and real-life tools to keep my life moving forward in a positive and healthy way. I highly recommend Shelia."
