me1Hello. I’m Shirley, a certified coach and writer.

I coach because I think human beings are fascinating and wonderful. I delight in our diversity. And I love working with individuals who are stuck or need help making transitions.

I write because I believe in the power of storytelling and its impact on our personal development. Stories shape us.

So, is there a link between coaching and writing? Absolutely! 

Here’s the thing: stories are largely responsible for our survival and our advancement as a species. Humankind has used stories throughout history to pass on knowledge, to stay safe, and to continue to learn and grow – to Evolve.

On a personal level, the stories we tell ourselves about who we are (and who we are not) can propel us forward or hold us back. Each of us has a belief system comprised of experiences that our minds have converted into stories – the knowledge that helps us navigate our world.

My blog posts deal with personal development and coaching. My writing is less formal, more creative. I hope both give you food for thought.

Coaching and writing are what I do today. But I have a wealth of experience that precedes this particular place in my life’s journey. If you’re interested in knowing more about my long and varied career prior to coaching, look me up on linkedin.com
