A little about me:
I love animals, nature, running, horseback riding, writing, my husband, my dogs and cats, family and friends, and coaching people to create amazing fulfilling lives, careers, and businesses. I’ve been through several life-changing transformations in the past 15 years and with each one I find myself in a grander more beautiful place in life. I am passionate about animal rights and rescuing animals and have been my entire life. I have beliefs that I feel passionately about, which I lovingly refer to as my Lucky 13. Here is a small sampling of those
- I believe… Life should be filled with joy and inspiration. It should not feel arduous or exhausting. If it does, something needs to change.
- I believe… Everyone has a right to what they believe. We are each unique and have a right to our unique beliefs.
- I believe… Your thoughts and beliefs create your reality. We all have the power to create the life we desire. We simply need to align our thoughts and beliefs with the reality we desire.
- I believe… Dreams can come true. Miracles happen. Nothing is impossible (unless you believe it’s impossible).
- I believe… We should express and honor our passions and authenticity. You are here to be you. Honor that. Embrace it. Live it.
I am a recovering workaholic and “doer”. I am also a recovering driven, struggling, type-A personality who has found that true success comes from reconnecting with our Divine selves, our souls, and living life from that beautiful natural rhythm of life that was created just for us.
I feel passionately about helping people reconnect with that part of themselves and supporting them in learning to embrace who they truly are and live and lead life from there. When you do, the struggle disappears and life flows because you are allowing your connection with the truest most authentic part of you to shine. It is a life of freedom, love, openness, and wonder (what I call, Flow).
I left the Corporate world in 2009 and started my coaching and consulting business, C3 Coaching & Consulting, LLC. C3 has since transformed into AndriaCorso & Co. I finally decided to stop hiding behind the name of a business that no longer aligned with my soul light and simply be me. I’ve discovered it is the best place to be and the best company to own.
Some things that are on my “official” bio (whatever that is!), which might be of interest to you:
I have a Master’s of Science degree from Villanova University in Human Organizational Science (which is a fancy term for Human Resources) and a Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Psychology from Hofstra University. Currently I’m working on my Ph.D. in Research Psychology with a focus on studying compassion fatigue in animal care professionals. I decided to combine my love of human behavior and animals and research the heck out of it!
My professional career includes 15 years at Lockheed Martin climbing the corporate ladder and trying to prove myself until the toxicity of that environment became too much. I escaped in 2009. I have an ACC coaching certification from the International Coach Federation and am also a Martha Beck Certified Life Coach. My “full bio” can be read here. Behind all those words, degrees, and certifications is what I believe to be the most important truth about me: I am here to create positive life changing experiences for all those I interact with: humans, animals, nature, strangers, friends, colleagues, clients – all. I love what I do and am blessed to do what I love.
I’ve also written three books. I tend to forget to mention that because I love to write. I blog here on my website and am also a contributing blogger to The Huffington Post. You can find more info about my books here.
Finally, if I go missing or am off the grid, chances are I’m either out for a run or sitting down by the fabulous pond on my property. It is my sanctuary and where I rediscovered the truth of who I am and reconnected with my soul-light. It is also a place I share with my clients as they step into their own journeys of rediscovering what it means to live a life they love – one that represents who they truly are!
