"The Brain BS Coach"
I help women over 50 to develop unconditional love for themselves, so they can achieve what they once thought was impossible.
Bachelor of Science, Occupational Therapy, Ohio State University, 1996
Masters of Education, National Louis University, 2011
Doctor of Occupational Therapy, St. Catherine University, 2019
Certified Life Coach, The Life Coach School, 2020
MK is a licensed occupational therapist, a certified life-coach, and a stepmom to four adult stepdaughters. Self-coaching inspired her to push through her fears, change her perceptions about herself, and reclaim her personal power. While traditional coaching places an emphasis on action and managing the environment, MKCoach knows that achieving the life you desire starts with an internal process.
MK decided she wanted more out of life when her father died over four years ago. She was tired of feeling old and like the best years of her life were behind her. She was tired of beating herself up for aging every time she looked in the mirror. She was tired of worrying about what other people thought about her. She was tired of not loving herself or not living up to her potential. She was tired of feeling like she was "less than" because she did not have biological children. She was tired of hiding the emotional complexities involved with being a stepmom. MK started the process of reclaiming her personal power when she confronted her technology fears and enrolled in an online doctorate program. She has been tackling one fear at a time ever since.
MK wants to show other women how to challenge the BS in their brains, push through their discomfort, and reclaim their personal power the way she did. She wants to show women how to let go of the life they thought they were meant to live and embrace the life they have. MK wants to help women feel confident and powerful as they age; whether they are alone, in a traditional family, or part of a
blended family. MK knows the only thing standing between woman and the life they want is their brain BS!
