Although Cheri’s career began as a CPA in a public accounting firm, she chose to specialize in hospital audits, completed a master’s degree in healthcare administration, and went to work at Texas Children’s Hospital where she felt it gave “life and meaning to the numbers”. She worked in a hospital setting for 6 years and was married to a psychiatrist for 15 years. After considerable exposure to western medicine, she began learning more about eastern approaches to health and vitality. She began practicing yoga, reading and attending conferences, and spent time working with spiritual life coaches. Cheri received so much personal benefit from these new approaches that she became a reiki master and certified spiritual life coach to share with others what she learned through both life experience and education.
She understands both the ups and downs of the human experience, and enjoys listening and helping others with their journey. Cheri’s personal struggle with poor communication with her father and in the latter part of her marriage led her to many relationship and communication resources seeking solutions. After many “ah-has” and epiphanies, Cheri has the empathy and understanding to help others with the communication issues within their relationships.
Cheri is a non-judgmental and giving person who genuinely cares about the love, success, happiness, and relationships of others. She enjoys reading personal development books and takes it to the next level by sharing what she learns in a group setting through workshops. She also stores these references in her mind and as situations present themselves, she utilizes these teachings, her life experience and observations, and the coaching model to help clients find solutions.
Figuring out and achieving her life purpose has been such a rewarding experience; Cheri would love to work with you to discover your life purpose and provide coaching to help you find the strategies, clarity, and the confidence to achieve it.
Accomplishing your life purpose can be a challenging road with many obstacles to overcome. It requires much faith, trust, perseverance, and creativity, but it’s completely worth it. Cheri believes that God doesn’t give you a dream you can’t accomplish but he also provides helpers to assist you along the way.

The International Coach Federation definition of coaching:
Professional Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future. ICF member coaches recognize that results are a matter of the client’s intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coach’s efforts and application of the coaching process.”
