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. //

Having lived in many different cultural contexts, (Africa, New England, New York City, Northern California Bay Area, Hawaii, Minnesota) I bring a special sensitivity for cross-cultural experiences to my coaching. I have also spent over thirty years as a local church minister in a progressive tradition - open to all kinds of spiritual expressions, and trained for coaching in the Univ. of Wisc. Professional Life Coaching Certificate program. I have been in Minneapolis for nineteen years, and enjoy the seasonal changes of this part of the world. My renewal comes from creative processes of many kinds, and participation in the arts. I also find great inspiration and renewal from the natural world. I look forward to coaching with you.
