About Joy Shepard Baldridge and Discover More Life Coaching
I believe that our lives are to be lived artfully as unique, ever dynamic, expanding masterpieces. I delight in helping individuals delve boldly into possibilities from the fullness of their beings; supporting them in broadening and deepening the full range of colors in their pallets. I partner with my clients to excavate, explore and DISCOVER MORE of their authentic selves; and from this deep, authentic place, to live a life of choice.
I am a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF), a graduate of Accomplishment Coaching, and a Master NLP Practitioner. In addition to having my private coaching and coach mentoring practices, I contract with BetterUp (an executive coaching firm) as a Fellow Coach and the iNLP Center as mentor coach. I am also a preferred mentor coach for ReciproCoach.
A dedicated, life-long seeker of truth, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, and continue to read extensively in the world of ideas and the fields of Applied Positive Psychology, personal development, and spirituality.
I love music, am a versatile professional classical singer, and have performed at a variety of events and venues (including singing the National Anthem at a Seattle Mariners game and as the featured soloist with the Pacifica Chamber Orchestra).
I have a professional background and over 20 years of experience in software development.
I live with my husband and our two precious basset hounds (Stella and Clarice) in beautiful rural Western Washington.
