We recently had the pleasure of featuring Barbara as a presenter to our chapter members as part of our monthly webinar series. She’s clearly an expert in wellness coaching as her material was filled with tips, ideas and techniques for both coaches to use personally and for them to use with their clients. Barbara’s style was warm, inviting and easy-going and her personal story an inspiration to all. If you are looking for an informative, upbeat presenter in the area of wellness, you should strongly consider Barbara!

I have worked with Barbara for several months. I find her approach to coaching both refreshing and genuine. Barbara’s ability to listen to what is stated ‘between the lines’ helps her ask thought-provoking questions that help you hone your thoughts and ideas, specifically around your health requirements. She is caring and interested in helping you achieve your wellness goals. I highly recommend Barbara as a coach and mentor.
