About Makeala

Having grown up a “military brat” I learned at an early age how to be flexible and adapt to new environments, while maintaining stability and continuing to move forward -- all of which have helped shape me as an individual, educator, and life coach.


Feeling a bit stuck and overwhelmed myself, as though there were something more I was supposed to do, I received training as a Certified Professional Coach. I later started my coaching practice to help people get beyond the overwhelm, clearly articulate their goals, identify potential roadblocks hindering them, and develop a vision for success.


With  almost 16 years of experience at the secondary( 7 years) and post-secondary education (9 years) levels, I have successfully taught personal and professional development courses, advised high school students and adult learners, and managed general education faculty. I am currently The Pacific Institute campus trainer for faculty, staff, and students -- which consists of helping people identify how their habits, attitudes, beliefs, and expectations impact performance.

Having been coached myself, I can attest to how empowering the process can be! Most importantly, I am truly dedicated to helping you reach YOUR next level of success!

Fun facts: I would eat chocolate for dinner if I could,  I love to travel, spend time with loved ones, and go Ziplining (once over gators; not sure if I'd do that again!  😕
