You are a strong, intelligent, and compassionate warrior in your life. You find yourself at midlife, wondering how to lose the status quo so you can be who you really are and remain fierce and vital.
You value your relationship with yourself first and foremost. You know that if you aren’t at your best, you aren’t able to impact your world in the way you want and need to, and you don’t do things half-way.
Midlife to Best Life is a community where warriors gather to reassess our lives. It’s a place to dream, plan, strategize, and weigh the pros and cons of our many possible futures. It’s a place where we lift each other up as we create our best lives together.
The purpose of Midlife to Best Life is to support highly motivated people in building their best life from midlife and beyond. You’re invited to join the Facebook Group, or the Meetup Group if you’re local to the Portland Metro Area. The members are fantastic, uplifting, and inclusive. You don’t have to go it alone any longer.
Midlife is a gift! We get to hit our “reset” button and create the life of our dreams. It can be one of the most exciting times of life if you surround yourself with supportive people and find guidance. You hold the key to your happiness; I can help you unlock your best life.
As a Whole Person Certified Coach, Carmen Reed-Gilkison approaches the dynamics of midlife holistically. Believing that happiness starts with health, she covers topics around five major life-pillars:
Whether you want to improve your health to ensure vitality into your golden years or live life on your terms by starting a business of your own, this is a supportive, safe place to network and explore the magic and opportunities that midlife holds.
Here’s a video that I did around the question “Are You Settling?” It’s a great conversation starter and further illustrates what my mission is:

Let’s Create Space is a life design service. Kory uses coaching, organization and interiors as tools to transform one’s wellbeing. Her philosophy? If we become the best versions of ourselves — really embracing all the gifts we have (through coaching), have all the tools in place to do our wonderful things (through organization), be in an environment that fosters, encourages and empowers the above (through interiors), we will have infinite possibilities to draw from to design our lives.
For twenty years, Kory has been designing, collaborating and creating using her BFA in Design. In early 2017, at a 5-day business retreat, she was encouraged by a personal coach to examine her heart and her life. She experienced an epiphany, which became a catalyst to go find something new and adventurous to apply herself to. Her course in life shifted. She found space for herself with unlimited possibilities and the desire to share her passion for creativity, design, interiors, organization and self-care with others.
Kory lives in the beautiful City of Saint Louis with her loving, supportive husband Andy and their 3 cats: Spencer, Penelope and Pepper. She’s quite fond of her little back porch, loves to cook, is insanely organized and kind of obsessed with weather.
Casey Tabolt is a WPCC certified coach specializing in helping moms rediscover and honor all the parts of themselves in order to take better care of themselves and live more intentional and fulfilling lives.
Casey is a wife and mother of 2, who has been a work from home entrepreneur since 2015. It was in the midst of running her Etsy shop and taking care of a newborn and toddler that she was came face to face with how unsustainable her life had become. She was diagnosed with a severe autoimmune disease that put her in the hospital for 3 months, fighting for her life. She attributes her miraculous recovery to the choice she made to find meaning and purpose in her suffering, her willfulness, and last but not least, her love for her children.
It was through this experience that Casey learned how to reconnect with herself and started rebuilding her life intentionally by honoring her values. She started to debunk the myths of self care that had kept her from taking care of herself in any meaningful way. She adopted a new mindset and felt immense gratitude and appreciation for her new life and the lessons she had learned. She committed herself to personal growth, and took the steps necessary to share her knowledge and be of service to moms who feel invisible in their lives. Casey is passionate about helping moms reconnect to their inner voice; honor their strengths, hopes and dreams; and make self care the feel good habit it needs to be.
Today she spends her time seeking joy, homeschooling and peaceful parenting her kids and supporting moms as they make themselves a priority, follow their dreams and honor their whole selves so they can show up as the best mom possible.
She deeply values service and growth and can help you rediscover your path and yourself all while becoming the mom you were meant to be. She knows the struggles of overcoming our pasts, learning how to develop our own unique parenting philosophies, and maintaining our individuality in the face of motherhood. There is no destination for this journey but we can certainly enjoy the landmarks we reach and celebrate the ground we’ve covered.
She believes in the power of coaching and the truth that you are more than “just a mom.” You deserve to live your best life and set that example for the next generation.

Greetings! For over fifteen years, I have supported individuals and organizations through various forms of change and transformation. I have worked with numerous Fortune 500 companies to help them identify their future state and supported them through this shift as a system. Throughout this process, I’ve partnered with many leaders to as they re-define their vision and serve as impactful positive role models.
Additionally: I’m especially passionate about helping those who have felt dis-empowerment at some point in their lives to reclaim their power and who they are in the world. As an Asian-American woman, I have deep familiarity with the experiences of some disenfranchised populations in the United States. My doctoral research focused on how one transforms from a state of dis-empowerment relative to the social environment to a stance of power and ownership of self in the world. This integrated the fields of Transformative Learning and Somatics as a methodology to support positive change.
Specialties: Organizational Change and Transformation, Organizational Consulting, Leadership Development, Adult Learning, Human Development, liberatory practices.
I coach in three areas – right partner, right livelihood, and Parent as Life Coach (coaching you to coach your kid(s) to approach life with a resilient and creative-problem-solving mindset).
Clarity of intention, creativity, courage, and resilience are all learnable skills that put your dream within reach.
Our coaching time will be strength-based, future-focused, and collaborative. You will explore creative processes that uncover the next step on your journey, experience inner shifts that inspire heart-centered action, eliminate blocks to taking action, and put accountability in place to get results.
I am a CPC, Certified Professional Coach, trained in Whole Person Life Coaching through Baraka Institute – Coach Training World in 2015. At the heart of whole person coaching is respect for the client, and trust that he or she is whole, complete and resourceful.
My M.A. in Spiritual Psychology is a natural fit with whole-person coaching. My B.S. in Computer Science and my years designing and building computer systems trained me to be solution-focused and results-oriented. My work in Addiction Counseling strengthened my belief that the start of your life does not define the rest of your life. No matter what you’ve done or what you’ve been through, a future with purpose and meaning is yours to create.
I have decades of experience working with people who are undergoing major life changes – workers undergoing radical innovation in their daily work processes, families coping with a terminally ill family member, men preparing to leave prison, families in the adoption process, professionals undergoing corporate acquisition and downsizing. Being a partner on your journey, walking side-by-side as your life transforms, is a great privilege.
More About Me:
I have compassion and understanding for people facing obstacles in achieving their dreams. I’ve learned to turn the challenges on my journey to my advantage, and to use every experience as an opportunity to learn, grow, and evolve.
I find joy & growth, purpose & meaning through my coaching, marriage, parenting, creative pursuits, friends & family, and spiritual practice. I live a life I love while being true to who I am. I hold the vision for you to create that in your life as well.
I offer a free call to anyone who would like to contact me and reserve a time. We can have a conversation and see if we are a fit to work together.
