Before getting into the coaching field, Loretta worked as a dental health professional for 14 years, owned and operated a small business, taught professional development courses and provided tobacco cessation training as a Certified Tobacco Educator.
Like most people, Loretta followed the traditional trail of going to college, working in a decent paying profession, buying a house, getting married, and having two kids. According to societal norms, she had everything that ‘should’ make her happy and complete. Although, she was grateful for all she had, something was seriously missing. She felt disconnected from herself; stressed out, burnt out from juggling all the demands of life, including the ones she put on herself. She often suffered from stress-related illnesses, chronic pain, accidents, and she thought “I need a change, but I’m not sure what.” She was stuck; afraid to change and she constantly wondered if there was more to life than this.
It was her grandmother’s death that finally opened her eyes fully to the reality that life is precious and she couldn’t waste anymore time. The small steps she had taken to move forward in life such as going back to school to obtain a university degree while still working were good, but they weren’t enough. She finally found the courage to take a leap of faith and left her unfulfilling job. After this, her journey of self-discovery really started to unfold. For her (like many people) it took some major life changing events, chronic pain and the death of a love one to finally start ‘waking up’ to who she really is and how she wanted to live the rest of her life. She now looks back on all the suffering and the courage it took to change her life with great gratitude. Her journey expanded greatly from there and she has learned to tap more deeply into her intuition and follow her path with a greater sense of awareness and trust.
Her deep personal experience has created a passion in her for helping others live and create working conditions that are aligned with their personal path and life purpose. She has learned the importance of being in alignment with our inner wisdom and sees life’s challenges and illnesses as a tool for self-awareness. She understands that often our purpose is directly tied into our work in the world. It is for this reason, she empowers her clients to tune into their inner wisdom, passion, and activated calmness to better their lives and work.
On another note, Loretta has presented and facilitated workshops since 2014 at several professional societies and at the RDHU Inc which is a company that provides continuing education to dental professionals. Loretta has delivered presentations to groups ranging in size from 15-200 people. She has presented several in person workshops, webinars and facilitated a presentation with both a live audience and a live online audience. Loretta has also earned her competent communicator award from Toastmasters International.
