I am a wife and mother to 4 kids (ages 7, 13, 18, 21). I live in Camas, a great little town in southern Washington state. We moved here recently, and are still getting used to all the rain, but I LOVE the greenery! I love hiking, running, yoga and pretty much anything active. I worked as a Realtor for 10 years. It was a great career and worked well with my family, but now I am being pulled into a different career path and I’m excited to begin my journey as a Life Coach.
My intention for this program is to LEARN. I feel privileged to be able to be one of the first to go through your academy!
I walk into this adventure with a great desire to learn more about how to help others. As an educator for the last 17 years, I’ve had the great honor of teaching children of all ages. In each phase of their academic life, children are challenged with a list of concrete expectations in order to produce a grade that qualifies them for the next level.
What children don’t learn are tools and methods that they can use when obstacles arise throughout the struggles they may encounter in their formative years; Challenges that may result in lifelong limiting beliefs. I know this because I would have benefited from learning ways to overcome the challenges I faced as a child.
I most look forward to being able to incorporate my faith into this journey so that I can continue to be Jesus’ hands and feet on Earth. With this certification and with the time I get to spend with like-minded individuals and, of course, Betsy, I think the possibilities will be endless!
Originally from Philadelphia, I have been living in Miami since 2013. I have worked as a professional actress, a dance teacher and a History teacher, but I always felt like there was something missing and that I was meant to help people in a deeper way.
I am now in the process of getting a Master's in Mental Health Counseling and now I have the amazing opportunity to be a part of this life coaching program!
My "why" is to be a servant of God and to bring His hope, love and healing to others on a daily basis.
Just shy of their 20th wedding anniversary, Emily Jones was widowed unexpectedly at the age of 37 with four children. As a traveling executive, her world was turned upside down by the loss of her best friend and home infrastructure. Through lots of prayer, reflection, learning, and work she has been able to rebuild her life into one filled with hope, intention, and generosity.
She has a heart for those grieving significant loss and is fulfilled by helping others walk the journey of healing. She believes God pulls our hearts from despair, and we must continue the work of healing while still honoring our person.
She founded an online membership community to help young widows navigate grief, heal their heart, find hope, and dream again for their future.
Prior, Emily served 20 years in the healthcare space, most recently as Senior Vice President of Revenue Cycle leading team members of over 4,000 associates in 100+ hospitals across the U.S. She earned an MBA from John Brown University with an emphasis in leadership and ethics.
She also enjoys leadership coaching, being a self-proclaimed nerd of John Maxwell’s teaching and style. Her passion for servant leadership, collaboration, helping people, and bridging gaps is the driving force behind her desire to become a life coach and community builder.
Emily and her family reside in the beautiful rolling hills of Arkansas.
I am the person that God has prepared as the Answer to your Prayers!
If you are tired of feeling hopeless and helpless, I am your Answered Prayer!
If you are living in constant fear, I am your Answered Prayer!
If you are struggling with anxiety and depression, I am your Answered Prayer!
I am Ivette Lopez and I am your faith-filled life coach! I work with people who live in fear and debilitating anxiety by empowering them with practical tools that will enable them to heal, overcome fears and become the best version of themselves so that they may walk by faith, not fear!
I have been married for 28 years, a mother of 3 beautiful children and an educator of the youth for the last 17 years. My life hasn’t always been as beautiful as it is today. You see, at 16, I struggled with depression and was haunted by the fact that death is final, and when you die you don’t come back. This led me to overthink and over analyze everything which then led me to experience a loss of sleep, lack of appetite and a paralyzing fear that did not allow me to truly enjoy any moment.
I learned I had to unbecome what I had become.
And that’s why I love what I do. I get to help others who are experiencing what I experienced to become the person God intended them to be. I help them fall into faith and just be held. God is knocking, all you have to do is answer Him.
“Don’t be afraid, just believe” Mark 5:36

God has blessed me as a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. I have found love and joy in every stage of my life and as my last child leaves home this year, I am searching for ways to spread more joy to others. I understand that life is fragile and very difficult at times but I know that together, we can always feel God’s love which can bring peace and gratitude to our everyday.
I am a mom to 2 beautiful healthy girls (Thank you God) and a wife to one the most amazing humans (Alex). I am an FIU Grad with a Bachelors in HR Management and Business Management. Before having kids, I worked professionally for Baptist Health, took about 5 years off when I had my first daughter and then went back to work at her school as a Teacher Assistant. I am not returning this school year to the classroom and will be dedicating my time to my family and seeing what else God has in store for me.
I am a woman centered in faith and courage . I have dedicated my nearly 4 decade career to improving the lives of youth, especially young women and their families in the field of healthcare . As an educator I have mentored many students and trainees and helped to transform lives and careers. I am passionate about serving those in need both materially and spiritually and I love my family. The one factor that would let me know that I grew and transformed after participating in the FBCA is that I would be consistently showing up for myself and thus transforming who I currently am into the image and likeness of who Jesus
knows that I am.
I have been married for over 22 years and I am a father of two kids (daughter 16, son 12). My general "why?" in life has always been to serve God and my family. I have had several callings throughout my life. My passion to play music led me to serve in a music ministry for over 15 years. This experience came with many blessings along the way, but none greater than meeting my wife. Other callings led me to couple career changes on my journey. This has blessed me with the opportunity to meet many great people from different walks of life. Like all of us, I have had struggles along the way. Over time, I've learned to see even those struggles as a blessing since they have allowed me to truly see others and become empathetic to the challenges they face. With this ability, God has called on me several times to informally serve as a life coach to people in need. I found those times to be profoundly rewarding. I look forward to learning as much as I can from Betsy so I can be best prepared to serve those God calls on me to help in the future.
