I have a passion for helping people be the best version of themselves and enjoy doing what they do every day. Through a one-on-one coaching journey, group coaching or in workshops, my audiences discover how to challenge their mindset so that they can reframe problems into opportunities and be at the cause of their lives rather than at the effect. Through an insightful and empowering coaching process, my clients regain purpose, confidence, courage and calm, even after and during the most difficult times.
I am an International Coaching Federation Certified Professional Coach and graduate of the Institute for Professional Coaching (iPEC). I also am a graduate of VCU with a Master’s Degree in Counselor Education. After a career serving in roles in business, government, education, non-profits and healthcare, I founded Cooley Coaching & Consulting in 2011. I specialize in the highly effective Core Energy Coaching™ and Energy Leadership™ approaches as well as the Myers-Briggs and DiSC assessments. My love for grief and loss recovery coaching came as a result of working in hospice and palliative care for eight years. I had the honor of helping hundreds of children, adults, families and community members understand and work through their grief journeys.
As a resident of Southport, North Carolina, I work with leaders virtually from Eastern Carolina up to Washington D.C. and across the country. I reside with my husband, Steve, near the beach where we enjoy walking during sunset, sharing picnics and socializing with friends. We are enjoying the fruits of our labor after dedicating many years to raising our family in Virginia, and our celebrating adding grandchildren to the Cooley clan.
