Although born in Ohio, Angela was raised in the South in Concord, NC. As a recovering overachiever, she has lots of degrees and training. She majored in Sociology with a minor in Women and Gender Studies at North Carolina State University and has a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Career Development from Colorado State University. She has numerous certificates and has attended trainings on topics such as relationship coaching, mindfulness, behavioral change and interventions, sex and intimacy, healing from abuse and trauma, and restorative practices. She has been in the field of counseling and coaching for almost 20 years including crisis counseling for survivors of abuse, counseling children and families as a school counselor, and couples and relationship coaching.
As a child of divorced parents and having a failed long-term relationship that left her as a single mom to her son, Angela knew that she wanted something different. In 2009, she met James and they began the process of creating a loving and intentional partnership. They married in 2011 and added two daughters to their brood. She believes that the best gift she can give her children is healthy and happy parents in a healthy and happy relationship, and she makes that a priority every day. As an extrovert, she loves being around people, both the little ones and the big ones. She loves being outdoors, listening to music (especially when James plays), dancing, reading, exercising, traveling, and eating/cooking yummy, healthy food. Her superpower is allowing women of all ages to recognize, own, and embody their goddessness and power.
