Giving

Founder & Leader of a Women’s Network in the Middle East

Shine brightly, give generously!

I’ve felt a lifelong calling to support other women, especially by empowering women in need.  Love and light fuel my acts of service and are the building blocks of my business. 

When I first dreamt about launching my own coaching practice, I knew that giving back would be a pillar of my business model.  I believe in the power of women helping women, so I invest a portion of my coaching profits in women-owned businesses in Africa through Kiva, a non-profit organization who provides microloans and support to entrepreneurs in developing countries.  I also mentor young women and offer pro-bono coaching services to women in need, as well facilitating free support groups and workshops.

Over the years, I’ve supported a number of non-profits and charities, including founding and leading the Qatar Professional Women’s Network (QPWN) to empower women in the Middle East (see press coverage below).  I’ve also supported a number of other non-profits and charities, including domestic violence shelters, ovarian and breast cancer research funds, and our local schools and church just to name a few.  On the LIGHTER side, I’m known for creating communities of women for the sole purpose of having fun!

“A mindful and dedicated coach, present not only for the sessions, but during the whole journey. Christina is passionate about people and you can just feel it during the sessions.” – E.R.
