Maggie – Coach
Having achieved career goals, there was more I wanted to be. This ignited a journey to becoming a coach. Living Whole Coaching was established to assist others in exploring their next chapter. Walking with others through transitions, businesses clarifying what’s next, and my passion, assisting women desiring to be civilly engaged.
Maggie – Transition Leader
As a seasoned executive, I am able to adapt quickly providing leadership needs for an industry in transition which enables time to pause and assess what is needed in a long-term replacement executive. As a Transition Executive, the focus is on sustaining morale and productivity during the interval between leadership.
Whether in the trenches or in leadership, my abilities can assess operational needs, sustain cash management, and develop innovative means to meet needs operationally and financially.

I sherpa you to your authenticity and integrity, which fuels the drive to achieve the needs of, and ambitions for, your personal, professional and business growth, and stabilizes you as you navigate your life, profession, and business.

With a leap of faith that the net would appear, in 2009 I established Living Whole Coaching and provide the following:
Now ten years later as a credentialed professional coach I help others in transition, small businesses, the long-term unemployed, and my passion, young women entering civic life, sustain their authenticity. While my focus is toward individuals who have had fulfilling careers and feel there is more they have to give, my purpose is to provide the place and space for any individual desiring to grow to explore their profession, their business, their life.
Why this matters . . . Life is meant to be fulfilling. In knowing what you value and setting your direction based on what you value, the successes one achieves are most rewarding in all aspects of living.
Why I do this work. . . Because everyone deserves to fulfill their legacy, goals and purpose in life. Also, it is the means to pay it forward and back for those who helped her with my endeavors.
My background encompasses experience in business, the human condition, and thriving through change. My qualifications are with emphasis on:
