Hi, it's Ellyn.
I've been coaching professionally for 18 years. One of my greatest desires and drivers is to help individuals realize their potential and greatness and to feel supported as they take action on their vision. I firmly believe that it is only through a combination of training, mentoring AND coaching, that one can truly achieve full potential.
Explore, learn what coaching is and isn't, and do not hesitate to reach out when you are ready to develop your vision into a future-facing, inspiring action plan.
I can't wait to meet!
