Client Celebrations


“Hester was instrumental in helping me with a major life transition. What I appreciated about her most was her ability to listen well, ask powerful questions, and uncover some “left field” possibilities I had not considered. She provided me with the suapport necessary for executing the follow through on my goals. Her experience in the corporate, non-profit, and entrepreneurial sectors has given her some broad perspectives relevant to anyone considering a bold move or big change. You’ll be happy you connected with her – she’s a safe bet in the coaching space!  – Dave W.

“As a Life Coach, Hester offers tools that are transformative in the way I understand myself – the way I think, feel and behave.   Because of her coaching, the negative inner voice that has dogged me for my entire life has a critic now, just as loud and even fiercer!  As I continue on my journey to discover my own true calling, Hester’s support helps to keep me honest about my intentions and motivated to keep moving forward.  When I feel like giving up, I seek out Hester for inspiration and hope!”   -Fern S.

“Hester is one of the most supportive and compassionate people I have met, so working with her as a coach was a very easy decision. I knew that I wouldn’t be treated with anything but respect and love as I turned for her to coaching and guidance when considering making a move and a job change.  I wasn’t disappointed on that front— she is open-hearted, validating, and sensitive to my feelings and emotions. What I hadn’t experienced firsthand before our coaching began, however, was her insight and intuition. Her own life experiences have qualified her to be sharp and purposeful in her coaching. She is empowering and honest when leading someone towards their truth and their optimum selves!” Lily W.

“Hester is one of the most dedicated, hard working and bright individuals I know. She excels in so many areas of is particularly skilled in communications and building relationships. The passion, intellect and work ethic she possesses make her an incredible asset to anyone. She is also a joy to be around and a thoughtful, kind and wonderful person!”  -Isabel N.

“Hester’s calling is to be a coach! She has an innate ability to motivate, understand and relate to people and uses it to align tactical approaches and help people achieve diverse personal and professional goals. Her genuine nature and ability helped me shift my perspective resulting in long term change for me. From working with Hester, I gained confidence which has allowed me to take risks (job changes, promotions, better advocating for myself) that I wouldn’t have previously taken. She demonstrates and practices what she teaches”  -Kari H.

As A Trainer

“I highly recommend Hester’s workshops. I gained the idea that I have the power to change my thoughts, which will change my actions. It changed my outlook on many things and even turned into a new discussion with my family about my goals. I definitely see myself using these tools in the future. I would absolutely recommend this class to others. I think everyone would benefit from learning how to visualize their goals and learning how to change their approach to the way they think about things as Hester taught me. –Nicole, workshop participant

“Hester truly empowers people and teaches highly valuable skills – I highly recommend her workshops!”  -Crystal S, workshop participant

Executive Leadership

“Hester’s work ethic and passion cannot be matched. Hester immerses herself in designing and implementing her programs as well as providing high-level development training, mentoring, and effective leadership that lead to improved outcomes. She leads by example, and so her energy, positive attitude and passion for her work are infectious and therefore raises the bar for all those with whom she works.”
