Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

CoachRev supports people at end-of-life and grief, no matter the type of loss a person is experiencing. CoachRev also supports professionals involved in these areas such as funeral directors and medical teams. In addition to 1:1 and group coaching, other services offered include a year of grief follow up through daily emails and monthly newsletters, grief support groups, workshops and retreats. I was a hospice chaplain and a certified life coach for many years. When I learned of end-of-life coach training I felt a wave of excitement as I envisioned bring my two worlds together (hospice and coaching) into the one area where I have tremendous passion! When my last church pastorate reached it's end, CoachRev @the CrossRoads became my primary ministry.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

``Lee has the ability to see the big picture and work with her client to meet any of his or her needs. She coached me to see outside the box of a significant challenge, change my perspective and overall make positive changes that worked for me. Her intuition served me very effectively as well. I would recommend Lee as a coach as she listens, understands, and is non-judgmental. She communicates effectively, works with your own style, and goes as far as you are willing to make changes within yourself. She is always available, if not by phone, then just an email away. She genuinely cares and has a passion for her work, which shines through when she is working with you.`` || ``At a time when I was without a church and my Mom was in hospice care because she was close to passing, Rev. Lee was a gift of loving kindness and support that knew no bounds. She sat with my Mom and me, getting to know each of us, holding our hands, giving us hugs. One day, she brought in a hymn that captured the essence of my mother’s love for gardening and creation. In the Bulb, There is a Flower would be a hymn that was played at my Mom’s memorial service just weeks later. I asked Rev. Lee to preside over that service because I felt her love, warmth and spirit of compassion for both of us. Lee met with me twice to help create the kind of service I had in mind for my Mom, and I felt an inner joy with the outcome, knowing that the feeling of the service would be just right … and it was. These milestones in life are some of the most important ones we’ll ever face. I thank God for Rev. Lee, knowing that our paths crossed when I most needed it and for continuing to be a blessed presence in my life.``
