Coaching simply means you are engaged in the process of working with another person to help you get clear on what you want, why you want it, and how you are going to get it. It can be around personal or professional goals and the process/progress is determined by the Client, not the Coach!



For 25 years Carrie has been creating and leading training/workshops on a range of personal/professional topics to help people do this whole “life” thing a little bit better, including self-care, communication, conflict resolution, boundaries, burnout, supervision skills, emotional intelligence, goal setting, as well as all things related to kids/teens/parenting. All training is interactive and centered on skills/tools participants can immediately use and apply- to like life & the people in it a little more.


Carrie loves traveling the country talking to people about how to find & focus on the positive in life- at home and at work. She has shared her interactive keynote presentation focused on the Power of the Positive with thousands of people at national conferences and presentations across the country. Using humor & interactive activities she engages audiences with concrete skills/tips and tools focused on building emotional intelligence (people skills) and is proud to say she has been asked, more than once, if she has ever written for SNL.
