Personal & Business Development Coach
Cyndi Hall, CTACC
I received my coach training and certification in 2006 from the Coach Training Alliance (CTA) in Boulder, Colorado. CTA is accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) of which I am also a member. The ICF is dedicated to the advancement of the coaching profession by setting higher standards and ethics for coaches. Prior to coaching, I received my BA degree in 1993 from Eastern Kentucky University in Paralegal Science. For several years, I worked at a private practice law firm, then spent the last three years of my legal career working for the Supreme Court of Kentucky.
Since 2007, as a personal and business development coach, I empower and inspire others to personally evolve and create success, harmony and well being in their lives. My mission and purposes is simply to raise people’s consciousness so they may experience life at its best. I help to break through barriers by defining what you want, make it easier, more fun and you can see your life start to change quickly.
