Bev Lutz ICF membership provides incredible professional networking opportunities, professional and personal growth, and opportunities to explore my strengths as I volunteer in service of my profession.  My chapter really helps me stay current with coaching, thought leadership, and learn-n-earn (CEU’s) from professional development events.  But it’s the supportive coach-friends and collaborators who have made membership for me priceless. //

I'm a certified business & life coach who is passionate about helping others through the many transitions and challenges in business and life. Here's why...

For most of my life I've been a sales leader, working with great teams and building trusted relationships with clients, many who remain friends to this day.

In 2017 I joined a mission-driven organization in the higher-education space. I had a sense of belonging and meaning as we helped working professionals

earn a quality education. The company was acquired in 2018, and after a year of restructuring, I and a number of my colleagues were laid off. It was a shock.

Yet, as we know, change brings opportunity. I decided to take time and think about what I wanted to do next. Lots of introspection and coaching from family

and friends revealed a passion that had always been there, right below the surface. I love helping people, coaching, and mentoring! I had always done that

in my career working with teammates and clients. I decided to act on that passion and earn my coaching certification.

I work with people in transition. Whether that's an early career transition from academic to professional life; professionals moving from individual contributor

into their first people leader role; those who have just been promoted or are making lateral transitions to a new challenge; or those between jobs, on the

verge of layoffs, or perhaps moving toward retirement.

The recent shocking change I went through opened my eyes. I've been through many professional and personal transitions. I know how challenging

they can be. My passion now is to help others navigate through theirs.
