MY STORY
Change is tough and often it's a struggle to see yourself at a different place than where you are right now.  You ​know you need transformation, but have struggled with making it a reality.  Or perhaps you have been thrust into a situation where life is looking VERY different than what you had imagined and hasn't turned out the way you expected.
 
Hi, I’m Lori Girard and I’ve been there.
 
I was a mom of three kids with a thriving six-figure business I loved & had dedicated my entire (grown-up) life to, alongside my husband.  We had huge goals and dreams, and in fact had accomplished many of them.   I experienced wonderful adventures some people only dream of.  Then one day in 2010 - I woke up to a divorce & no longer was needed in our business.  By the weekend I had moved out of our home & was starting over.  What I knew, who I THOUGHT I was and what I did… suddenly was no longer connected to my marriage of 26yrs or our business of 21 yrs.  I had a serious identity crisis on my hands.
 
Was I scared?  Of course.
Did it hurt? You bet. 
Had I wasted all those years?  Certainly not.  
Could I find joy in the midst of tragedy?  YES.

I survived, even THRIVED, and created a life I truly love. 
And so can you – no matter the obstacle.

​I am trained with Erickson College in the Art & Science of Coaching as a Professional Coach. 

​​I coach and empower women to rise up and live impactful, victorious lives through discovering their identity, and personal values.  With a focus on transforming belief systems and purposely creating a successful lifestyle.  ​

MY PASSION
​I treasure good strong coffee (sorry Tim Hortons), my girls, my grandkids, and being able to empower others to live fully.   I love spending time in the Word of God and I highly value my relationship with Christ.  I am an extrovert and can talk to anyone, but cherish spending time on my own.  I know - weird...don't try and figure it out.  
My other loves are:  Time with good friends, rooibos tea (earl grey being a close second), road cycling, great books and new adventures - whether it's travel or some new and crazy thing to try.  (Crawling through Mayan caves in Mexico... TWICE - being the most recent adventure.) 

My passion for coaching others began in 1990 when I had the opportunity to have influence & impact on others through a very successful business in the financial industry.  My niche throughout those 20 years  was to coach individuals in areas relating specifically to  goal setting, creating mission statements, identifying fears & overcoming the challenges that often hold us back from success and accomplishing our goals.  

Additionally, I have mentored and coached young women since 2002 as a youth leader with Riverside Community Church.  I have over 12 short-term missions trips under my belt which are not only focused on serving the communities we visit but also on giving young people an opportunity to experience other cultures & work hard creating change wherever we serve.  For those interested in Faith based coaching, it may be helpful to know I am a licensed Pastor with Riverside Community Church (a Foursquare Church) in Port Coquitlam, B.C. 

I currently lead and oversee a Leadership Development Program for young adults.  This is an intense 10 month internship for students age 17 - 25yrs old.  Our mission is to equip, develop and release strong leaders who passionately pursue the heart of God to transform their families, church and community.  It's an opportunity to lay a firm foundation of life-skills necessary for success & impact on the world.
