ANGELA HAS BEEN CALLED A “LIFE STRATEGIST” & A “CONFIDENCE CATALYST”
ABOUT COACH ANGELA
I knew I had a call to help people since I was in the third grade. I grew up in the “perfect” Christian home. I was the “perfect” Christian girl. I graduated high school, went to Bible college and met a fiery, young preacher. We got married and took our first church right after graduation. I was working in the profession that I had prepared for all of my life and I thought I was living my dream. But, after 23 years of marriage and the ministry, my life went from a fairy-tale to a nightmare.
Life didn’t turn out as I expected…the surface problem was that I experienced heartbreak, abandonment and betrayal. I suffered devastating loss after bankruptcy, foreclosure and financial ruin. The damage was insurmountable. I went from living my dream to becoming a divorced, single-mom. Seemingly overnight, I went from preaching to the pulpit to selling windows door-to-door. I went from wearing a Rolex with diamonds to standing in the food stamp line. I walked away from my titles, overwhelmed with a heavy load disillusionment and disappointment.
The deeper problem, however, was that I was no longer a wife and I was no longer in the ministry. The two major foundations on which I had built my identity were swept away in a swift stroke. I formed my identity based on what I did versus who I am at my core.
WHO AM I?
Mother. Grandmother. Sister. Daughter. Friend. Confident. Resilient. Feminine. Purposeful. Strategic. Compassionate. Visionary. World-changer. Innovator. I value…Abundance. Freedom. Connection.
My professional qualifications include being an ordained minister, certified life coach, a professionally trained chef, published author and speaker. I am an award-winning salesperson. I spent 30 years developing powerful mentor-ship programs that resulted in leaders who have gone on to make a strong impact in their communities.
I’m a foodie through and through; a bon vivant, if you will (one who has refined taste, especially when it comes to food, drink and the enjoyment of life) which led to my professional training at Le Cordon Bleu in Austin, Texas.
I am a mother of four amazing kids and a self-proclaimed “Glammaw” who goes by the name, “Mammaw”, to four precious grand-babies. I describe myself as a family fanatic and a Mid-western girl with a Texas twist. My two greatest passions in life are the transformation of food and the transformation of people.
