Meet The Coach

LET’S BE HONEST…BEING A TEEN IS AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER. DON’T YOU REMEMBER YOUR TEEN DAYS?

Mine were filled with confusion, excitement, discovery, loneliness, and bonding. And that was just in a single day. Now, with three daughters of my own, I see the same issues in play.

Being a teen is all about:

  • Searching for your identity

  • Becoming independent

  • Figuring out how you relate to the world

  • Pleasing your parents (but not really)

  • Trying new things (and failing at new things)

Is it all starting to come back to you now?

What a privilege that my job is to support, guide, and mentor teens to find confidence, happiness, and calm during these tumultuous times.

And I LOVE my job!

But wait, I forgot to introduce myself.

I’m Coach Sheri
I’m a parent educator, author, and teen life coach.
And mom of three teenagers.

PARENTS find me approachable and relatable and hire me to support and guide their teens.

TEENS enjoy having a mentor and coach they can talk to.

ORGANIZATIONS appreciate my presentations that combine theory and concrete pointers.
