As a Professional Certified Coach, I’m supporting people in being more effective in life, work and relationships. I help people achieve goals of any kind, from navigating difficult career issues, personal or career transitions, to realizing visions, dreams & rediscovering your passions. I engage with you at a deep level to find your highest purpose, explore your power and creativity, develop self-awareness, or improve skills and performance.
The type of coaching I do is based on inquiry and discovery, and can be applied to any area of life to help you shift or broaden your perspective, resulting in desired change, growth and action.
My background in education, non-profit administration, as an entrepreneur, a lengthy career in a Fortune 500 corporation, and International Coach Federation /Whole Person Coaching training & experience, provide vital skill sets in coaching, sales/marketing, finance/administrative management and training/facilitating, from which to draw on to support a variety of needs that clients may have.
My passion is in connecting with you on your personal journey, to better enable you to find clarity and achieve your dreams.
I am currently a Certified Professional Coach and Whole Person Certified Coach with Coach Training World, as well as an Associate Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation.
In this crazy, often hectic and chaotic world it helps to have people we can reach out to to help us explore our interests and passions while also helping us achieve our goals.
My niche in coaching is in taking a wholistic approach to working with executives, senior managers, and other leaders in for profit, non profit, and entrepreneurial ventures experiencing the very real and very challenging stress of change. Having walked the walk, working globally in all three sectors, I look forward to working with you to find your focus, set your goals, and guide you to success.
My own journey has taken me from technical sales and marketing roles in New York, Boston, Raleigh, and Silicon Valley, to educational leadership roles in the United States, Monaco, Finland, and most recently, with SNHU in New Hampshire. My passion lies at the intersection of service, education, entrepreneurship and technology. And while I have an MBA and a doctorate in Organization and Management, my career and leadership style has evolved largely based on the challenges I have faced, the failures I have learned from and the successes I have helped achieve.
Mostly though, it is the people along the way who have mentored guided, led, and coached me that have helped me become the person I am.
I love exploring new places and ideas – and getting to know people from all walks of life.
I have worked for a wide range of new ventures, for profit, and not for profit organizations in the U.S., France, Monaco, Finland, and Tanzania – learning critical business and life lessons along the way. Here are the few:
– In leading a social venture that supported the start of new home building businesses in Tanzania, from elders in rural villages, I learned about dignity and the importance of tribes.
– In designing and implementing a technical support center, technical training curriculum, and a field sales force, I learned the value of collaboration and the importance of continuous improvement.
– In helping lead the turn around of a University in Europe, I explored concepts of global leadership, learning at the feet of students and colleagues from over 100 countries.
– And finally, in helping to create a program for children living in poverty that helped them overcome summer learning loss while developing healthy habits, I learned the power of community and caring.
And while I bring these experiences into our work together, I am most interested in learning more about you and what brings you here.
If in my bio you see ways in which we connect, and how I can help bring clarity to your own life as a professional, please reach out to set up an initial (free) discussion. Thank you.
Note: I am a CCMP (Certified Change Management Practitioner), have a PHD in Organization and Management, an MBA, and a specialization in Future Thinking. I am currently pursuing the Board Certified Coach program with Coach Training World as I love their wholistic approach to the coaching profession.
I am a quiet and shy by nature person who values interconnectedness and embraces connection with others. I am originally from Bulgaria and moved to Denver, Colorado in 2005 where together with my husband David we are raising a funny and likable son.
I earned a Master’s in Counseling and Bachelor’s in Psychology and spent 15+ years working in social work settings and making an impact in the community. I held positions in leadership, direct client service, and community collaboration. During my professional career I gained broad experiences in assessing program operations to develop successful strategies and creative solutions for advancing community outcomes. Through my work, I gained experience in leading collaborative committee initiatives within diverse community settings to determine strategic processes and programs to increase well-being.
My career in social work gave me so many opportunities to make an impact in the community, to see the strength in others and to lead in the direction of building up a safe and stable life for everyone. Being a social worker fulfilled so many of my dreams! Having said that, work also tested my world view and several times I lived through burnout. My solution – I apply my grit to everything that I do. Living though Pandemic encouraged me to create this business where I can continue my passion to support others. At the same time, I expand my service, remain full of life and available to make the change I want to see in the world.
While each project is unique, my goal is to set you up for success by focusing on creative solutions to develop your style and to empower growth in your organization. When we work together, I will support your inner personal growth so you can increase resilience, boost your confidence and feel connected while you are making progress towards your goals.
I can help you to increase the confidence in your abilities, by embracing your power to get unstuck and move forward successfully so you can live a life full of joy.
Whether your needs are to keep strong and steady motivation to achieve your goals, learn how to lead your team remotely, build positive relationships, increase collaboration, balance work with well-being, I will help you to make the impact you want in the community.
I help leaders to balance bottom lines with compassion, allowing you to negotiate and collaborate effectively so that you can instantly build stronger teams and establish a nurturing culture.
I am trained in Compassionate Communication model and will engage you in a conversation to learn about your priorities in resolving conflict, time management, culture building, developing talent, then help you craft a plan in each area while focusing on innovative solutions.
I show entrepreneurs like you how to establish healthy boundaries, discover new ways to bring more vitality in life so that you can open up to your full life potential.
~I really loved working with Bodi!! She created a safe space where I could share things I don’t regularly share with others. Through her attentiveness and calming presence, she created a supportive environment where I was able to discuss many limiting beliefs. She created clarity and awareness around these beliefs which were undermining my confidence in creating a business. Bodi helped me dig deeper on these issues and uncover different strategies to counter them. More importantly, she helped me shift my thinking and awareness in a way that was empowering and allowed me to move forward with more confidence.~
Alex Ornelas, Ventura CA
~When I think of the type of coach I want to work with, I think of someone who can hold space for me and all of the (what feels like) craziness I have going on in my head. Bodi is just that coach. She is supportive while letting me create my own goal posts for success in all of my endeavours. All I can think of is the saying, “You’re in good hands” – which is exactly how I feel being coached by Bodi. ~
Shealyn Nosal, Management Consultant at Propeller
~Bodi is a great coach and I highly recommend her. Bodi is easy to talk to and created a calm but action-oriented atmosphere, which is exactly what I wanted. I made a ton of progress on a touchy issue and her guidance was critical to helping me get there.~

A former professional soccer player, Kirby helps former athletes who struggle to fill a void – and identity – in life post sport. She teaches them how to confidently lead a life they want, a life they love as much as their sport.
There is room for YOU in your life. You deserve to be seen and heard.
I am an ACC and Whole Person Certified Life Coach. And I am a recovering people-pleasing perfectionist. My passion is helping women in mid-life who have lost themselves in the service of others to find and honor their voice, so they can reclaim their personal authority and lead a confident, empowered, and compassionate life.
As a recovering People-Pleasing Perfectionist I was lost to myself for a long time. I usually worked my needs and wants around other people’s. My family was always put first. Then friends. My needs were sometimes fourth or fifth.
I bought into the story that an ideal woman, and ideal mother, is helpful and kind. She is a good person if she sacrifices her own wants and needs for others. She never puts herself first. This story made me feel guilty when I did things for myself.
When I hit my mid 40’s, I came into the proverbial mid-life crisis. I looked around me thinking, “how did I end up here?” and, “what does my future hold?” and most importantly, “who am I and what do I want?”
There was a voice in me longing to speak up. A voice that deserved to be heard. I compared myself to stories of women who made radical, drastic changes to their lives. I heard about these women and believed that to speak my truth I’d have to completely change and live a radically different life. I thought there was only one way to be fierce. That scared me.
I longed to start living my life for myself, to have my sense of worth come from within, and take care of my own needs. But I was trapped in either/or thinking. I felt like my choices were: either take care of everyone else’s needs or take care of my needs. I didn’t know that you can do both.
Like so many people-pleasers, I was constantly seeking external validation. I was basing my individual value on what others thought of me. I had built my life around an inner narrative that said: “my real worth in the real world comes from supporting and serving others”. I let other people’s stories determine who I was, how I should act, and what makes me a good person. But my true self bucked against the stories.
Things changed when I learned how to rewrite my story. I decide who I am, how I should act, and where my value comes from.
Using techniques of narrative coaching, I’m honoring my voice and learning that I no longer need to hide or suppress my needs and wants. I still enjoy supporting my loved ones, but I now include myself in that circle of people I love.
That’s what I want for you too, and that’s what we’ll do together. You’ll learn how to rewrite your stories & inner narrative, so that you will shift your perspective, find your voice, reclaim your personal authority, and find joy & appreciation in your current life.
Change is possible, no matter how long you have been feeling lost in your disempowering stories and patterns, or how terrible it currently feels. You can be seen and heard without giving up on the life you’ve created.
Your voice is uniquely yours; you don’t have to sound or act like anyone else. That’s the beauty of it. Standing in your power doesn’t have to require a radical, aggressive change. It can, but it doesn’t have to. What it does require is radical honesty.
In my coaching program, Cultivate Your Voice, my mission is to help you find and honor your true self by honestly assessing limiting stories and shifting your perspective, so you can reclaim your personal authority and lead an empowered, confident and compassionate life. You can support others and support yourself.

Hi! I’m Mindy.
My work as a life coach centers on developing healthy relationships between adults and the children they care for.
I believe the most important gift we can give the children we care for is meaningful and positive connection.
As a parent and home educator of 21 years, I’ve learned how to be adaptable, creative, and persistent while parenting and educating 5 kids.
I’ve become an experiential expert in home education, social-emotional learning, early childhood education, human growth and development, and strategic planning.
I work with anyone who cares for children: school administrators, teachers, parents, and caregivers.
Your role as a parent, educator, or caregiver has probably changed during COVID-19. You may feel lost, underresourced, overworked, and worried about the children in your care. Many of you are grappling with how to transition and adapt from public education to home education.
I want to help you show up for the children you care for in a sustainable, purposeful, and meaningful way.
In order to do this, we as adults must connect with our OWN needs, first.
I’ll help you…
~ assess your needs and the needs of the children in your care
~ clarify what’s really possible and eliminate the long list of “shoulds”
~ strategize sustainable new rhythms and systems
~ set realistic expectations and goals
~ uncover your own, untapped inner resources
I create a space that is safe for you to let yourself be seen and heard, where who you are and your goals and challenges can be explored and reflected back to you gently and succinctly.
I would love to partner with you on your journey!
Young adulthood is a time of life that is so full of promise and potential. But, let’s face it—it’s also a time that can be overwhelming and stressful. After all, you are only setting the course for the rest of your life! As a certified life coach, I can help you figure out where you are going—and how to get there.
Whether you are a young adult–or there is a young adult in your life that you think could benefit from coaching–contact me so we can talk more. This is an age group that is capable of incredible resilience, growth, and insight. I love that about young adults—and that’s why I’m excited to support them.
Ten years ago,
I was a lawyer with my own practice. I had everything going for me: professional goals accomplished, happily married to the man I love, leading a balanced life with healthy food, sports, vacations, you name it.
My Cartesian mind was telling me that everything was under control, that I had ticked all the boxes and that it would be foolish to change a thing.
Then, life hit me.
At age 38, my body was attacked aggressively by an autoimmune disease. The symptoms were so severe that I could not go to work. Even worse, I could not do even the simplest tasks due to fatigue – making a cup of tea could take all my morning energy from me. I was incapacitated… Treatment was not working the way it should, and I almost lost hope that my body would ever restore to health. I was at my wits end. I was desperate…
All I could do, confined in my house, was think:
“Why did I have all these health problems? Why did I worry about everything that might (or might not) happen to a point that my body crushed? Why had I not realised that I had always been stressed, tired, and anxious? If everything was under control, why did I feel lost and overwhelmed by my emotions?”
“Why me? All I ever wanted was to reap the fruit of my hard work and be able to enjoy my happiness and my success. All I ever wanted was inner peace. After all, I had accomplished every goal I had set for myself. I had done everything I was expected to do.”
Tired morally and physically, I heard a quiet, calm but assertive voice that said:
I was surprised by the certainty of that voice, but I was willing to try anything that would bring back my well-being. What I did not realise right away was that this voice had a wisdom of its own. It led me on a healing journey that started from something that I was relatively familiar with – yoga.
Attending local yoga classes relieved me of my stress and helped my body’s renewal. My yoga teacher and I soon became friends, and she recommended I try reflexology. One thing led to another and my reflexologist introduced me to a reputable energy healer.
I could understand the benefits (and the “science”) of yoga and reflexology, but I remained skeptical when it came to alternative healing methods. Nevertheless, out of curiosity and trust, I decided to meet with this energy healer. To my surprise and delight, her therapeutic channeling worked for me.
My healing begins.
During the session, I was deeply moved by the healer’s wisdom and capability to see above and beyond the surface. She reminded me of my innate sensitivity and said: “Stop running away from who you are, and you will get better. Follow the wisdom of your inner self, and you will forever remain healthy.”
After the session, I rediscovered my sensitivity, which I had had since my early childhood, and I could “see, hear and feel” again. At the beginning, it was overwhelming. It was as if I had been struck by lightning. The experience brought me back in touch with my inner wisdom and enhanced my capability to hear my inner voice. Thankfully, the energy healer taught me techniques to manage my energy sensitivity and trained me in putting it to good use, that is, she taught me how to do therapeutic channeling.
This “epiphany” that helped me rediscover my true gift and inner compass has led me to a series of changes thereafter. I practice being in tune with my inner voice at all times and I know that my inner wisdom is aligning me with the will of the universe. I started “bumping into” the right people, experiences and opportunities. One could say that all this was nothing more than “coincidence” but, in fact, it was synchronicity… That’s only part of the magic that happens when we ignore “distractions” and we start to turn within. Following my curiosity and inner voice, I discovered and trained in Reiki, Hypnotherapy, the Enneagram and Whole Person Coaching. I also taught myself to use divining rods so as to do energy evaluations of people and places, which helps me to better understand my clients’ energy needs before healing and balancing them.
A blessing in disguise.
It was only when I hit rock bottom, that I came to realise that there had always been two voices guiding me. One was the voice of my logic, the loud and demanding one that led me to the ultimate deterioration of my well-being. And the other one, that of my inner wisdom – a soft, quiet but powerful voice that always proves to be right; the one that has my best interest in mind;the one that is forever aligned with my life’s mission. A voice that has always been there, but that was ignored and sacrificed at the altar of social convention and family expectations. A voice that makes me feel whole when I listen to it. The voice of love, wisdom and inner peace.
I learnt that for me to hear that voice I had to quieten all the mind chattering, to make time for silence and just listen. Since I had never taken the time to stop and listen to my body and get in touch with my emotions, my body fell ill and forced me to sit tight and listen to its wisdom.
Reborn with a mission.
Since then, I have been healthy and medicine free, I have more love to give myself and others, and the relationships in my life have become better than ever. After years of training and experimenting with my gifts, I have created my own method of well-being, i-Ki Coaching, and I’m blessed to work with people from all over the world. I write books, and I travel the world for talks, workshops, trainings, presentations and sessions.
My mission is to help you to discover, trust and listen to your own inner, innate wisdom and be guided from within. With this skill, you will learn to become more accepting, compassionate and loving towards yourself and others, you will form and sustain healthy, fulfilling and happy relationships; and ultimately, you will find and use your true gifts to fulfil your life’s mission with clarity and equanimity.
I’m a transformation and personal development coach who helps people learn how to learn their purpose in life and maximize their potential. Because You Matter.
