Carolyn Valdivia Bio
I come with an interesting mix of talents, having had a successful career in Advanced Vehicle Engineering, working with such notables as Chrysler Motor Corporation, McDonnell Douglas Corporation, and the Department of Defense (DOD), my engineering career spanned over 15 years. I left engineering after a short stay in Egypt 1996 and found that I need to devote my time not to machines but people.
After arriving back in the states I set on working for the greater good, as a teacher, writer, and coach. I have held such positions as Engineering Instructor, Grant Writer, Director of Development, Executive Director, and Foundation CEO.
Once back from Egypt I was appointed by the Governor of the State of Michigan to a pilot program working with convicted juvenile felons in Rehabilitation Education, teaching basic engineering and coaching. I have written and instructed over 12 technical engineering related courses for high school; granting college credit.

Is good as always
Working with Carolyn has been a great blessing to me. She has been remarkably supportive, gentle and compassionate yet skillfully adept at helping me focus on what is really important to me, what stands in my way and what next steps I want and need to take to accomplish my goals. She is a great listener. I really feel heard, and that has been key to my trusting the coaching process. And she has fantastic, creative ideas that I've found eye-opening, simple and practical. I've been surprised to find myself, after every session, muttering, "Well, that was worth the time!" It's amazing to me, looking back at the process, how someone could help me cut through the brambles to be able to visualize some key goals. In retrospect, my next steps were obvious and the natural outgrowth of years of previous contemplation and experience. But they weren't obvious to me before I started working with Carolyn. It's also amazing how making some undramatic (I didn't need to move, quit my job, or leave my family), but substantial, additions to my life are making such a big difference in how I feel about myself and how much more satisfied I feel with the direction my life is taking.

Life coaching has helped me to identify issues that have stood in the way of business success and assisted me in developing techniques for working around or through these issues. As someone who has gone through substantial change in my professional career over the past couple of years, I count on coaching to ensure that this transition continues to go smoothly.
Over the past year Carolyn has been coaching me through some very big transitions in my life and I could not have navigated through these changes with as much honesty and grace without her help. Her coaching skills helped me identify and focus on the most important aspects of this change and face the fears that have hindered me so much in the past.
My life coaching experience with Carolyn has not only helped me to achieve goals, but more importantly, it has enabled me to discover who I am, what makes me tick, and what those goals really are. She has the gift of being able to find the hidden treasures that allow me to achieve those goals.
