About Cheryl Scanlan



"A significant event occurred in my life while I was President of a 30 million dollar corporation. When the company was sold, I made a personal commitment to ensure all of our 28 employees were reassignedinto positions that best suited their passions and skill sets. Not one employee was let go because each had become critical to the function of the business. Each person plays a part and has a purpose. As a coach, my goal is to help individuals move forward in their purpose, passion and/or pursuits, helping each to create a path towards satisfying, sustainable change. "
