Coach for Veterans
Empowering Veterans, Transitioning Service Members, Military Spouses and Family Members
My coaching philosophy focuses on empowerment.
I employ a hybrid/blended type of coaching. Blended coaching is essentially taking coaching competencies and prior expertise and creating a hybrid type of coaching process.
