Motivational Speaker

Lois set the tone for the rest of the conference.”

-Emily Synk, Governor of N.E. Chapter, Society of Women Engineers

“As a member of the advisory board for the Wisconsin Bankers Association’s Women in Banking Conference, I recommended Lois as the keynote speaker. Her “Courage to Sparkle” talk was inspiring and entertaining. Here’s just a few glowing comments the committee heard after the conference: “very fun and great personality and great message,” “engaging and inspiring,” “wonderful, entertaining, useful content,” and the best takeaway, “I hope to take this “Sparkle” with me in both my work and personal life.” From the very beginning, Lois made me feel like a personal friend, not simply a professional speaker. Not only did she do a great job presenting but she helped me kick off a committee at my own office to keep the positive momentum going. I highly recommend Lois to speak at your next event!”

–Sonja Bjerkos, Vice President of Citizens First Bank

– Terry Gomes, L’Oreal, AVP

“I hired Lois as the Closing Keynote for the American Heart Association Go Red Luncheon. Working with Lois was a pure delight! Her keynote is high-energy and she really gets the crowd going. Lois’ message is funny, heartfelt, and motivating while providing tangible takeaways for the audience to come away with, or as she calls it “Sparkle with Substance.” She was a total hit! Not only was she was easy and fun to work with; she proactively partnered with us and delivered a tailored message for our audience and our campaign goals. Lois goes the extra mile! She is deeply committed to helping your event be a total success! I’d recommend her highly as a motivational speaker!
In fact, I already have!”

-Julie O’ Meara, Population Health Specialist at Valley Family Health Care

I would highly recommend Lois Barth for your event!”

-Kisha Zullo, MBA, CMP, President of Events of Joy

Workshop Leader

compassion. It was exactly what our research personnel needed to
lift them up! Her session resulted in such positive feedback from our group. Thank you for providing solutions for dealing with our stress and disguising it through entertainment and laughter!”

-Lois Mannon, Dir. of Research, NYU Langone

“Lois Barth is a fantastic speaker that can truly engage her audience in a variety of skills building topics. Her use of humor along with her behavioral techniques to conquer procrastination or to ace the interview has been extremely valuable to my students. I highly recommend her to any business or educational institution!”

-Michael Sarrao, Assistant Director of Career and Employer Engagement, Magner Career Center, Brooklyn College

“Lois returned to our office by popular demand for another professional development workshop. She encouraged us to make a commitment to move towards action with one activity we would like to complete, but have not yet. For me it was completing my final assignment for my MS degree. I made a committment, acted on it, and less than a month later I graduated. Lois is a dynamic! She shows you how to move you into action and make the process simple, fun and productive. Thank you, Lois!”

-Joe Yagar, NL Financial Alliance, President and CEO

“When I brought Lois onboard to speak to Entrepreneurs Organization (EO), she was a total hit! Her concepts are simple, fun and easy to use. Attendees thanked me and she scored top ratings in the surveys. They are a crowd of highly successful top performers in their field, who only want cutting edge information and top presenters. Not only did she give a winning presentation, but when I asked her to suggest other high-quality speakers, she literally filled my roster with fabulous speakers who delivered great content, and were a pleasure to work with. For an entrepreneur that “gets to pick which 80 hours a week he works” Lois is a one-stop shopping for speaking and curriculum development to help my entrepreneurs thrive. She changed my life for the better. I can’t wait to hear her speak again.
Lois is simply fantastic.”

-Joe Romano, Romano & Associates, CPA’s, PC

“You are truly a wonderful presenter. We received a lot of positive feedback from our guests. One of them even dropped off a bag of chocolate at my apartment to say THANKS!”

-Gwen Kahn, KBK Wealth Management

Participants and Clients

“Lois’ energy is a breath of fresh air. Not surprisingly, her style has been compared to that of Ellen DeGeneres- positive, fun, personable, musical… Lois brings 20 plus years of experience as a coach, speaker, health care practitioner and comedienne to her presentations. What’s most impressive is how Lois engages her audience, using real-life examples, comedy, and high-value interaction. You’re laughing, thinking, and engaging with others as you clarify your goals, navigate change, and recognize how you can lighten up to reduce self-imposed stress. It’s such an inspiration to meet someone as insightful as Lois”

Meg Branigan, Sales and Marketing Executive

“I met Lois today at a Lead-HER-Ship series and felt compelled to write a recommendation. Her exercises were perfect for my personality; high energy and I laughed all my stress away. I haven’t felt this great in years. I highly recommend her!”

-Lorraine Bucheroff, Membership Services, National Minority Business Council

“I had the pleasure of attending Lois’ “Stress Less…Sparkle More” workshop at my conference through my union. I immediately felt her Sparkle from the get go!

She had such a upbeat and energetic personality.  The combination of heartfelt and entertaining stories, practical strategies and exercises, mixed with her insightful LOIS-isms (lessons, opportunities, insights, and solutions) on how to deal with stress in a positive way really made a difference!

Luckily we received her book, Courage to SPARKLE, which has been so helpful to me in so many ways both personally and professionally. Lois, her book, and her Sparkle came to me at a time in my life when I needed it the most and I am thankful for getting the opportunity to experience it. I NEEDED the Courage to SPARKLE!! We all need to SPARKLE! Especially now. Lois can show you how!”

Tracie Ross- Claims Specialist

“Lois is the bomb! She has both coached me personally and led a workshop for an organization where I serve as a Principal and she brought excellence and creativity to both. Lois created an environment that allowed us to yield practical and powerful solutions on how to feel less stressed, more productive and connect more as a team. With her unique combination of great stories, humor and interactive exercise everyone came away uplifted by her Lois-isms, along with actionable ways to address their goals.”

-Marjorie Spitz Rento, Chief MOJO Maker® at MOJO Health + Wellness; Principal at Balance Integration

Virtual Speaking Clients

“Lois and I met a few years ago at a Society of Women Engineering conference where she was the opening keynote. We have kept in touch throughout the years!  I can always count on Lois for encouragement and feedback.  Recently I brought her in to present her Radical Resiliency virtual presentation for Kimley-Horn’s Women LIFT (Lasting Impact for Tomorrow) program. Her program was so much more than we could hope for.  Lois provided encouragement, critical thinking and helped our women in practice through the effects of the Imposter Syndrome and tips on how to develop resiliency during these hard times.”

-Eileen M. Vélez-Vega, PE (PR, FL, USVI)| Vice-President Kimley-Horn Puerto Rico, LLC, Director of the Society of Women Engineers, Board of Directors

“Lois is an outstanding speaker and engaging presenter. I would highly recommend her for any speaking opportunity. Lois is professional, resourceful, very creative and she brings 110% of herself to the project. She brought her program to us virtually Skype (which can be a challenging for a live audience) and it was as if she was in the room with us. She was able to interact with the audience seamlessly and inspire many deeply. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and hope to work with her again soon. Lois is a bright and talented speaker who encouraged us all to have the Courage to Sparkle!”

-Melanie Capobianco, Manager of Career and Business Development at Ontario Bar Association

“Lois had a very challenging task ahead of her on a technological as well as group level. She presented a workshop via video teleconferencing with fourteen different departments at the same time!  On video! It made my head spin, just looking at it!

But she nailed it. She tailored her presentation to Capital One Bank’s needs. Understanding our work/life balance and challenges with stress, she brought her unique form of expertise, humor and SPARKLE! She was very motivating, told great stories, made us laugh, but also showed us her techniques, which brought an immediate calmness to everyone in the room. In addition, she added personalized tweaks that celebrated team members, and boosted morale. For weeks after the event, people were still talking about her fun loving style and how helpful her “Stress Less…Thrive More” presentation was.”

-Melody Jackson, CSS, Capital One Bank

Women  and Leadership, Diversity, and Empowerment Speaker

“Lois was our opening keynote speaker at our Women In Trucking conference this year. The audience of nearly 800 (mostly) female audience who work in the very male dominated world of trucking loved her and her message!  She shared her experiences in a way that made the message more personal. I would recommend Lois for anyone looking for a speaker who encourages, supports, empowers, and entertains the women leaders in their audience. You can’t miss the mark with Lois and her Courage to Sparkle!”

-Ellen Voie, CEO of Women In Trucking

“Lois was a breath of fresh air from start to finish in our workshop on “How to Shatter the Inner and Outer Glass Ceiling”.  She wowed the Financial Women’s Association Pacesetter group with her unique approaches to making an impact and having more influence. Lois is creative, engaging and drives home key points through modeling and interacting with her audience. With humor, high energy and proven strategies, Lois was able to help the group uncover some of the obstacles that were holding them back, and she offered a plan for how to move past them. If you or your team want to make a bigger impact in your organization, Lois is someone I highly recommend. She has a special brand of sizzle and her book, Courage to Sparkle, is a fascinating read.”

-Gerri Feemster Bostick, Executive & Leadership Coach, CPCC, ACC

“Lois is phenomenal! Together with a group of senior level female litigators, I attended Lois’ Shatter Your Inner and Outer Glass Ceiling Program. She was excellent at listening and helping to identify issues faced by women lawyers in the courtroom and the boardroom. Lois provided tangible tools and effective strategies for improving and elevating my presence and dealing with gender-related issues that women lawyers face. Lois’ coaching session helped me figure out not only how to have a seat at the table, but how to lead and control the table!”

-LisaMarie Collins, Attorney at Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.D.

“Your presentation hit on so many issues we all face as women working in a fast-paced, high-pressure, male-dominated industry. You had us laughing at ourselves as you showed us hot to truly take control of difficult situations and turn them into win-win opportunities for us and out clients. We are a tough group of professional women who thought we had heard it all about reducing stress and what we need to do to build our careers… but we hadn’t. I look forward to hearing you speak again. Thanks again for your excellent presentation!”

-Jacquie Tannenbaum, Assistant Director NH Chapter, Women in eDiscovery

Consulting Clients

Behavioral Wellness Meets Professional Development

“I am a strong believer in leading by example and in working where I am most effective. Lois helped me to clarify my greatest passions and how to best leverage my time. Together we brainstormed ways to champion my rockstar team of designers and back office staff to step into new roles of leadership. Being a serial entrepreneur, I am constantly looking to provide cutting-edge services and products for my clients – all while building my brand. It’s essential for me to have a team of advisors supporting this effort.   In addition, Lois always has great ideas that help to navigate the logistical aspects of an ever-changing service business like ours.”

-Laura Umansky, President & Creative Director, Laura U Interior Design

“Overall, my company is working better together as a whole and my employees are happier and more motivated. Lois worked with all of my employees one-on-one and not only are they appreciative that I care about their personal growth and professional development, but I’ve seen amazing progress in a relatively short amount of time. I wanted to take myself and my company to the next level and Lois has given us all the tools to do it.”

-Maureen Lowe, President and Founder of FTF

“I would recommend Ms. Barth to other employers that have employee issues that span beyond the workplace but also into whole-person issues that perhaps an executive or business coach is less suited to handle.

As an HR Leader for Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., a world leading insurance brokerage agency, I am often looking for qualified external partners to help support the development of our talent. Recently, we had a long-service and high-performing employee experience some challenging life events that were affecting her work product and behaviors. We contracted with Lois Barth to provide her consulting expertise with our employee with the intent of providing guidance and support to this individual in dealing with very personal and difficult issues and learning how to balance these emotions so not to negatively impact other areas of her life. The employee in question found great value out of these sessions and took away as much about being more effective in the workplace as she did general life skills. There was also an increased engagement level of the employee in her appreciation of Gallagher’s support and investment in her by providing her with Ms. Barth’s services. Ms. Barth handled a difficult situation with the upmost professionalism and appropriately balanced keeping the situation confidential for the employee while providing Gallagher with high-level but non-confidential progress updates.”

-Jennifer Duncan VP HR at Arthur J. Gallagher

Executive Coaching

“Lois is a unique and incredibly talented individual in so many ways — she is creative, engaging, thoughtful, wise, and deeply caring about individuals, companies, and the world around her. I have had the good fortune to know Lois for many years now, first as a friend and admirer of her public speaking work, and then as a client of her executive coaching services for a person on my team. She is definitively non-traditional, and that is precisely what makes her presence so valuable: she can challenge people and organizations in very innovative ways, and she achieves outsized results as a consequence. She helps bring out the best in people and offers tools and insights well beyond the norm. Whether you engage her as a keynote speaker, a workshop leader, an executive coach or a journalist, she will surprise you with what she’s able to bring to the moment. Thanks, Lois, for bringing more spark (and sparkle) into our world!”

-Karyn Polak, SVP and General Counsel at Transamerica

“Lois was able to help me in three key areas during my career.

  1. Strategically crafting the VISION and GOALS for my department.
  2. Helping me to AUTHENTICALLY communicate effectively in the corporate workplace. 
  3. Powerfully setting me up for INTERVIEWING/Client meetings.

I highly recommend her.”

-Judith Peterson, Chief Marketing Officer/B2B & Data-Driven Executive

“I’ve had the pleasure of working Lois as a recipient of her executive coaching services and she has been incredibly helpful. Even though I’d been practicing law for almost three decades, I was still finding that I wanted to be crisper in delivery when explaining complex legal issues to my business clients, and to let more of my personality show through. Lois taught me some highly effective techniques to solve for these issues and help me become a better communicator. She also had some very practical suggestions for managing the ever-present challenges facing a working mother. Lois has an enthusiasm and sense of humor that make working with her an easy and enjoyable experience while also providing opportunities for self-reflection. I also attended a #MLWomen program hosted by the Morgan Lewis Pittsburgh Office where Lois presented her workshop on communication and self-advocacy strategies for women. Lois provided powerful and practical strategies to help women become clearer communicators, advocate for themselves in an authentic way, and provide feedback in a way that creates connection. And we had a lot of fun in the process! Lois will certainly bring Sparkle to any event she leads!”

-Joan Zangrilli, Managing Chief Counsel for a large financial institution

“Lois is inspiring personally and professionally. She served as my coach for a year and I was always amazed by her insights and the way she connected the dots to further my goals. She has well-tuned instincts that guide her along with professional skills. I highly recommend her as both an executive and life coach.”

-Nancy Nielsen, Corporate Responsibility Executive

Business Coaching (Entrepreneurs / Thought Leaders / Artists)

“We are a longtime client and fan of Lois Barth’s. My sister, Tali Edut, and I first worked with Lois when our business was at a crucial turning point. As a coach, she lovingly guided us to make important changes that turned our company into a profitable venture it is today, many years later. What sets Lois apart is her blend of authenticity, fun, bolstered by a rock-solid background of experience, training and practicality. She’s a savvy New Yorker who “gets it” while also bringing a nurturing and sisterly vibe. Lois genuinely cares about and invests herself into the people she works with…and really everyone she meets. She is a phenomenal storyteller. We all need encouragement and tools to keep believing in ourselves, and to bravely forge ahead on the paths that call to us. Lois does this with wit, style and yes, plenty of SPARKLE.”

-Ophira and Tali Edut, The AstroTwins, Astrologists and Lifetime Experts, Author of bestseller Momstrology and The AstroTwins’ Love Zodiac

“I had the opportunity to work with Lois when I was in the middle of a huge career transition as a makeup artist. She was a godsend in the moment when I felt I was ready to give everything up that I had worked hard for.  Through my work with her I found that part of my real truth and gifts was to make a difference on the planet.  My client work transitioned from feeling tired and unappreciated to clients who valued me. I healed a huge “under earning” story I had and began to see that what I was offering my clients was so much more then I could alone see. I’m thankful for my time with Lois it was priceless.”

-Leora Edut, Creatix of Goddess On The Go

“Lois Barth is a tour de force in the world of professional coaching and personal transformation, and a passionate advocate for women who are ready to step into their power and find their true voice in the workplace and in the world. Lois has a unique ability to entertain, inspire, educate, and change lives through her powerful presentations, programs, and one on one coaching. I have had the privilege of working and collaborating with Lois through the years as a facilitator, personal coach, colleague, and business leader; and I’ve watched her clients excel in their chosen fields as they use her innovative exercises and insights to discover their full potential, express themselves powerfully, and breakthrough their own inner glass ceilings to take their lives and careers to the next level and beyond. If you are ready to discover a new world of possibilities and personal potential that you didn’t know existed, I highly recommend Lois Barth as a brilliant guide, coach, facilitator, and leader.”

-Elizabeth Browning, Transformational Acting Coach, Filmmaker, Director

“I love working with Lois! She has helped me with some of my biggest breakthrough’s and transformations and I can’t thank her enough. Thank you Lois for all that you have done for me.”

-Nicole Van Lunn, CEO and Creative Director of Bubbles and Butter Artisan Skincare

“Working with Lois has been truly life-changing. Her holistic approach to coaching means that I get guidance for practical day-to-day business issues, long term goal setting, along with a dose of self care tips thrown in . Whether I am trying to navigate long term goals or just manage the next thing on my to do list, Lois is able to help me navigate the stress and challenges that I am facing. She is truly one stop shopping for life and career coaching. She is strong and pushes me forward while also being kind and compassionate. I feel lucky to have found her and have been working with her for over 7 years and will continue working with her in the future.”

-Melissa O’Donnell, Chef / Restaurateur / Winner of 6 Michelin Bib Gourmand 

“I have worked with a lot of different coaches through the years, but no one compares to Lois.  She is a fantastic coach!  Lois is so kind, loving and supportive for the smallest improvement you make in your life.  She always lifts you up and makes you believe you can reach any goal.  She listens deeply to your challenges and always provides sound advice and a plan of action.  I always felt rejuvenated and excited after my sessions to go out in the world and do my life’s work.  If you are fortunate enough to work with Lois, consider yourself very lucky indeed.  She is a rare find in a world of doubters.”

-Rose Andrez- Inspirational Speaker, Writer, Mental Health Advocate

“Lois empowers you to shift your current thinking and reach your goals with play, ease and grace. Inspiring, motivating, visionary, funny are just a few characteristics that this powerful lady exudes. Always feeling like part of her family as she leads with heart and humor. I am grateful for my time with Lois as she made a positive impact on my future.”

-Heather Deleveaux, Health and Wellness Coach

“Lois asked the right questions and gave me the right exercises to help me determine where my time needed to be spent, and what changes needed to be made to bring my business (and my own time) into ideal balance. I highly recommend working with Lois if you need insights into what’s possible with your business!”

-Melanie Dziel, Chief Content Officer, Author of “Content Fuel Framework”

“Lois is a phenomenal motivating force! She has the ability to help you filter through the internal noise and fears which can hold us back from success and achievement. She helped me set up concrete actions and plans while examining my goals for myself and my business. I highly recommend Lois for anyone that is serious about taking their business and themselves to new heights. Taking the time to do this work for oneself is essential and Lois is a strong, honest, funny and kind guide!”

-– Janna Zinzi, Media Strategist and Co-Founder of Wonder Womxn Travels

Career Coaching

“Lois is a professional through and through! She has remarkable insight into the changing world of business and gives productive and constructive advice. Through her role as a career coach, she helps you to set achievable goals while still pushing you to aim higher.”

-Lizzo Fracco, PHD, Lecturer at Manhattan College

“When I began working with Lois I was going through a transition both personally and with my career. When I hired Lois as a career coach, I got so much more than I had expected. She not only motivated me, and was exceedingly supportive, but gave me valuable tools from everything on positive mindset, networking strategies and acing my interviews, but on a more life direction level; how to navigate change. In the process, Lois built up my confidence, self-esteem and allowed me to see things more clearly, discovering more about myself, both personally and professionally. Her ability to listen, tune in, and share her thought-provoking insights, had such a huge impact on me. Plus after we were “off the clock”, she continued to touch base with me to see how I was doing and offer her help whenever possible. I would highly recommend Lois to anyone looking to achieve their personal and professional goals.”

-Michael Grossman, Sr. Account Executive, Intersection

“Lois will be the teammate who will change your life. Whether you want a new perspective on an issue or assistance with leadership skills, Lois has the insight you need. She is smart, grounded, and a great communicator. Lois was a godsend for me. I recommend Lois without hesitation for men and women alike.”

-Bill Kaczaraba- Managing, Marketing, Journalism

“I have coached with Lois and found her input invaluable. The first time I needed her help, I was deciding on a career direction.  In the course of several phone conversations and one meeting in person, Lois helped me to focus on what was most important to me and to come to a decision I have been happy with for years.

The second time, she helped me edit application essays for doctoral programs.  She brought the critical of a great editor and an appreciation of emotional context to the task. The essays resulted in an interview that led to my acceptance into a fully funded program. I really think that her advice and guidance made the essay and the interview more focused, intelligent, and successful. I am so glad that I had Lois in my corner for these important launching points in my career.”

-Emily Sharp, PHD, Reading Specialist

Interview Coaching

“Working with Lois Barth on honing my interview skills was one of the best investments I’ve made early on in my career. I’m one of those people, who give 1000% at whatever I do. In addition to excelling in academia, I’m also deeply committed to my love of the arts (dance) and giving back (volunteering for numerous projects) and playing an active role in my college community. Not to brag, but I was often told what I an impressive resume I had, which of course, while great to hear, still didn’t help me land the job. I would often get to a certain level, and then for whatever reason not be able to land the position I wanted so badly. I did all the preparation and yet I was frustrated and confused what the missing piece was. What Lois pointed out early on, was that I was leaving what she called my “rockstar self” behind closed doors. On the interview I was only showing up in a one-dimensional way, and not “bringing it,” to the interview. Being a tad shy and understated wasn’t helping me communicate my skills, passion, and commitment. It wasn’t even about confidence, I actually had that; it was about bringing my most enthusiastic and authentic self to the interview process, so they could truly see who I was and what I’d bring to the table. Lois and I worked diligently to create what she calls “Story-Selling” using stories based on my accomplishments to educate the interviewer on my achievements, core values and winning qualities. There was lots of work ahead from learning how to give a winning interview on the phone, and convey my attributes only through my voice (not skype), to my final interview where I needed to bring my “rockstar self” to a panel of six higher up team members who interviewed me in person; which is daunting to everyone, even people twice my age. I was overjoyed when I received an offer and truly love my job. I learned from Lois that we live in a world where an impressive resume is a great start, but unless you bring your most alive and engaging self to the interview, decision-makers aren’t going to know the full impact of what your capabilities are. Lois helped me convey it in a way that felt conversational, authentic and polished. I’d highly recommend working with Lois, whether for a tune-up or an overhaul on your interview skills.”

-Annabelle Jenkins, DTC’s Men at Ralph Lauren

“Working with Lois was one of the most beneficial experiences of my life! Our sessions were enlightening – I felt like she made me see what was right in front of my nose. She taught me how to harness my energy in a graceful and poised manner, and how to speak about myself in the most powerful way. Most importantly, she helped me channel the confidence I had had inside me all along. Without her, I would not have the job I have today!”

-Julia Wald, LLM in Human Rights Law

Life Coach

“There are certain, specific moments in life that are turning points – moments after which nothing is ever quite the same. Meeting Lois Barth is one of those moments for me. I had big dreams, and little clarity. Lois’ energy and warmth was so magnetic, I knew I needed to be around this woman. Lois asked the right questions for me to get clarity and focus. Her faith in me rubbed off on me and propelled me to take massive action. Lois is smart as a whip, funny as all hell, and as real as they come. I have gone from attorney to stay-at-home mom to tech company COO to Certified Coach with real paying clients, leading workshops and sharing my message with growing audiences – inspiring others to have faith in themselves and get out of their own way! Lois is like the sunshine I needed on the seed that is my potential. Forever grateful.”

-Stacy Boegem, JD, Attorney Business Development Trainer & Search Consultant

“When I came to Lois, my original goal was to set up my a side business so that I could free up my time and leave NY to travel and explore. What I came away with was a life of adventure, and I mean that in no uncertain terms. With her help I pinpointed the things that didn’t work in my life, started the business and discovered what I did/did not want to do in that area. But probably most importantly I saw my disempowering views and positions (not least of which was my relationship at the time). That helped me shift into an entirely new space, and as a result I overcame fears that enabled me to travel extensively and work 100% remotely. Lois’ program, which was custom tailored for me, works. I highly recommend.”

-Kat Tepelyan- Brand Advisor, Designer, and Developer of Dozens of Successful On-Line Brands

“I could literally write a book on what I’ve accomplished since working with Lois Barth.”

-Darcie Purcell, Brand Curator for Busy Entrepreneurs- Multimedia Communications Wizard – Live and Online Event Producer

“I worked weekly with Lois for three months, and it is not an exaggeration to say it was life changing. I sought a life coach to help me develop resiliency, set boundaries, and discover ways I was holding myself back. Lois helped me stretch and grow and consider longer-term goals, like what I wanted my life to look like in the future. She describes her coaching as “behavioral wellness meets professional development.” That perfectly captures her unique approach as coach, cheerleader, counselor, and mentor. She observes and points out behaviors, how they serve or don’t serve you, and then guides you to different, more healthy options. In helping you understand your actions and why you behave as you do, she is both encouraging and challenging, knowing you must be willing to be uncomfortable in order to change. As a result, you grow personally, which inevitably leads you do develop professionally. After completing an extensive questionnaire, we spent a significant among of time reviewing what was shared and where to focus. She has a real gift for getting to the heart of the matter, and the work she has you do is manageable and effective. I was concerned it would take a lot of time and effort, and it certainly required commitment and investment. Yet, much of it was small daily work that paid huge dividends. My colleagues remarked on the change they saw in me, as did others. I am less stressed and more present, as well as more self-aware. In our calls, as I shared observations, improvements, and struggles, Lois was able to make connections and distill key points. I felt she really understood me and could pinpoint issues and areas quickly and create a path forward. I learned how to care for myself and set boundaries, which made me more resilient when change occurred or challenges arose. I also learned to ask the right questions of myself and evaluate situations to help me care for myself and be clear with others about what I could and could not do. These skills are serving me well during the pandemic. It is still a challenge, but I have no doubt that I would be struggling greatly had we not done the work we did. I am able to face this time with gratitude, strength, and hope. Investing in yourself is important, and I highly recommend Lois for any personal growth you may be seeking to accomplish.”

-Marcia Harding Zeller, Ass. Director at Cornell University ILR School

Relationship Coaching

“I first came to Lois because I was looking to make a shift in my career. Within the first 20 minutes of our session, I was able to connect to my deep grief about not being able to make a relationship work. It was then I learned that Lois was also a trained relationship coach! So I shifted my focus toward finding a life partner and followed her guidance. She helped me to envision how I could have more fun in a relationship. She encouraged me to bring my authentic self on dates and to my friendships and other relationships. Six months after working with Lois, not only did I find my soul mate but I feel more myself than ever before. Lois was, of course, one of the first people I invited to our wedding!

-Kim

“I am so grateful for the work we did together. You created such a loving and safe environment in which to explore and shift my limiting beliefs; to make stronger, clearer choices; and most importantly, to find my voice and speak clearly about what I require, need, and want from a relationship. You also beautifully validated what I bring to a relationship, and helped me see my qualities and strengths, so I no longer feel like I’m too much or not enough, but just me, and just right for the right man. Thank you so much for your clarity, wisdom, and insight—I feel more hopeful than I have in years!”

– Jenifer Madson, Founder, Mindful Leaders Academy (Badass Academy get title right)

“At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about my girlfriend having someone who helped her with our relationship but I soon realized that Kim had a calmness about her and an openness to talking about small miscommunications that arose between us. This was new for me. She didn’t blame me for things. Ultimately, I felt lucky to be with someone who was receiving outside support and I appreciated the non-judgmental perspective that Lois contributed to our relationship.”

—Francois, Kim’s husband

“Lois is a wonderful wonderful coach. She inspired and facilitated great changes inside my inner world. Lois invited me into the concept of self-love and that has forever changed my life. She has intuitive skills that are rare….she is a Soul Coach and a Life Enhancer. I am so grateful for her help in my awakening to self love. God bless u Lois…Your clients are so lucky to have you.”

-Marie Alfiers, ROM

Industry Experts
