About me

Meet Coach Diane

Life Coach




I am a certified John Maxwell coach, speaker, trainer, author, and entrepreneur. 

I am committed to leading people to design a life of joy, peace, and fulfillment, by helping them find meaning, purpose (and repurpose) in their life. 

Friedrich Nietzsche German philosopher, said, “He who has a ”why” to live for can almost bear any “how.” If you find your purpose, you can overcome any challenge life throws you.

My mission is to lead people to be champions and overcome adversity with confidence. 

My Story: I know what it feels like to endure a setback that derails your dreams. In the summer of 1999, I met one of the most devastating fates one can imagine. My health took a dive, leaving all my limbs over 95% immobile, resulting in me using a wheelchair. The disease not only took away my ability to move, but it also rendered me unemployed and divorced, and interrupted the life of my two young daughters; at the ages of 7 and 11, my daughters were thrust into the role of my caregivers. I prayed for death.

Amid this horrific circumstance, I somehow found solace. One day I had an epiphany;  I learned that a setback is an opportunity for a comeback. My transformation has led me to my life purpose: To inspire others to find their purpose and repurpose to live intentional and fulfilling lives. 

My aim is to encourage and empower human beings to design a structure on their journey to have, be, and do exactly what they want.

To make it happen I help you:

  • Recognize a setback as an opportunity for a comeback.
  • Build resilience and explore your values through personal development.
  • Structure your mindset to create confidence and build an unshaken self-image.
  • Use your full potential.
  • Own yourself and build your self-leadership skills to build a life that matters, to reinforce the possibility that you really can, be, do, and have what you want.
  • Develop and enhance your self-leadership skills for yourself as well as for the betterment of the world.

What I Do: 

I speak to encourage, inspire and motivate. I coach to connect to be an agent for change. I train to empower transformation; I help you become a better you.

I write 2 blogs (mindofagoddess.wordpress.com and writerworks.wordpress.com); have authored inspirational books and articles on personal development, wellness, and leadership; and work to support others make intentional choices to live more fulfilling, successful lives.  

I am the author of two books: The Invisible Child, a memoir, and Angels in Action, 17 inspirational stories.
