Transition to Passion

Education, Inspiration and Coaching for living with purpose and creating a life you are excited about

My journey as a Coach began in 2000 when I worked for several companies helping people transition to careers they love.  I earned a degree in Psychology/ Business Management from Western Washington University.  I also obtained almost two years of training as a Mental Health Counselor.  Although I enjoyed counseling, I realized that the process was too slow for me. Coaching is a better fit for me because it focuses on creating future results instead of past problems.

 

There were a few years I turned my back on my passions and took a job in sales.  Although I made good money and gained some valuable skills, I HATED my job.  Life is too short and too precious to spend it doing work you hate! 

For the last few years I have been working with a Department of Labor program teaching a course I designed and educating/coaching people how to set and achieve career and personal goals.  I have over 10 years of experience coaching and have helped hundreds of people create plans for living a life they love.  I enjoy my work and wake up excited about my day.  Monday is as enjoyable as Saturday!

 

Personal development has been a huge passion of mine for as long as I can remember.  Devouring personal development books, seminars, podcasts, blogs, and anything else I can get my hands on is my favorite pastime (besides spending time with my family).  The other things I am passionate about are reading and golf.  I live in Kansas City, MO with my beautiful wife Kelly, my children; Tyler, Jake and Claire (the cute little caboose).
