Thea comes to coaching from an eclectic background that includes a career as religious professional, consultant, educator, and writer. She is a trauma-informed practitioner with experience supporting people in a variety of settings: from the hospital to the bars and the courthouse to the classroom.
Her most recent academic adventure was as a writing instructor in dual enrollment programs with community college outreach to students in inner city schools. She loves teaching writing as it relates to social justice and asking the important questions: how do voices from the margins find the time and resources to be heard, and how does public discourse shape perception and policy.
Thea believes in thinking outside the box and dreaming big. She loves to encourage others to follow their inner wisdom and to reject limits that are imposed by systems of patriarchy and white supremacy. She loves being a coach and considers it a privilege to work with clients from diverse fields, backgrounds, and lived experiences.
