​My coaching certification process comes to an end just after the New Year and I'm so lucky to be on this path.  My coach helped put me in tune with my "North Star," the internal compass pointing towards my passions and values, and I couldn't be happier.  I wake up every morning enjoying what I do.  I wake up knowing that through coaching I can share the amazing gift of transformation, like the one I had, with other women to live their best life and rule their world.  Life is good.

Hi, I'm Sarah Toelkes and I am excited at the prospect of becoming your coach!

I am a North Carolina native and I have lived in Greensboro, NC for going on 5 years now.  I am a Phoenix, an alumna of Elon University, and graduated with a B.S. International Business and a Minor in Spanish.  After school though, my interests took a turn.  Business didn't give me the fulfillment I was seeking.  I found what I was missing in personal life coaching.  I discovered my light shined the brightest when I was developing trusting, meaningful relationships with others and uncovering their own wisdom to catalyze their success.  This discovery was made with the help of an amazing coach and it propelled me to enroll in a summer coaching course at a local community college.  I was hooked.  I made the decision then to start the journey towards my own coaching practice and earning my certification through Coach Training Alliance, an ICF accredited coach training program.

What an excellent read, even for those that don't like reading! I recommend this book to everyone.  New York Times best-selling author, Martha Beck, "writes like a wizard - her magic trick is turning people into their true selves." - Julia Cameron.  Speaking from experience, so true.
