At age 23, I became both married and divorced within the same year, and it was a tremendous whirlwind of pure bliss and excruciating pain. I then embarked on an international exploration of culture and of myself, finding myself in the path of international volunteerism, where I went on to live and work in Belize, Mexico and Peru – all of which brought me the most tremendous, eye-opening, soul-centering experiences. Through these experiences and my own deep interpersonal work with a coach and several workshops, I found the power within to make sense of my experience and to create a life that aligned with my purpose: to help open people’s eyes to the beauty and possibility of their own lives.
I became a coach because of the healing I experienced through the University of Santa Monica and other personal development programs that I have participated in. I also saw the power of working with a coach to create a life that felt really fulfilling. I wanted to be able to share this healing and fulfillment with others and felt that by stepping into coaching, I was also stepping into my life purpose. I continue to love coaching because I feel like I am making a real change in people’s lives and helping them to become better, happier versions of themselves so that they can make a bigger impact in the world by living out their dreams. It’s such a fun, fulfilling career! (And I also feel like by leading international coaching retreats that I am helping, in my own small way, others to step outside of their comfort zones and see the world with a new perspective!).

Transformational doesn’t even begin to describe it. Elsie Storm’s coaching helped me do a 180 with my life.
Her kindness, belief, validation, knowledge, training, and skill took me from a very low point in my life where I was angry and didn’t even recognize myself, to a new fresh start that fit the mold of what my dream job and living scenario was. She helped me open up opportunities for myself and held me accountable to making progress and going for the big things. I don’t love exercises, but the ones we worked through all held value in their own little, or big, ways.
Elsie coaches with her whole heart and soul, and that is why she is so successful and effective. I felt safe, valued, comforted, and lifted up in every session with Elsie. I left with a newfound sense of confidence, direction, and a dream job halfway across the country I never thought I would have. After 7 years of trying, she helped me make it happen. I still look back in disbelief…I never thought it would happen!
The light and love within Elsie is powerful, not only in her physical presence during all coaching sessions but also in her outside commitment to her clients. She consistently gives of herself.
I am so grateful that Elsie was willing to help me when I was in a tough spot, and there isn’t a way you can put a monetary value on what she has given me. I truly feel like I have my life back. Or rather, a new and incredibly improved life! When I look in the mirror, I see me. I’m excited for what my future holds, and I can’t wait to work with her in the future on other areas of my life.

Helped me transform my life! When I began working with Elsie Storm, it was at one of the most painful times in my life. While I had achieved a level of success in the corporate world that I’d worked more than a decade to reach–I was burnt out, joyless, disconnected, unhealthy and desperate for purpose. Almost immediately, Elsie helped me (with her combination of acceptance, tools and guidance) create a future map.
In the six months we worked together, I was able to resign from the career I was petrified to leave and accepted a position that was exactly what I had envisioned (during a powerful exercise in one of our sessions). She also helped me to reconnect with myself and rebuild trust, which resulted in a 20-pound weight loss and an excitement for life again. In a few short months of working with Elsie, I made greater strides than I had in the last two years.
While I still have things I’m working on, I feel more equipped to make those decisions with what I’ve learned from our time together. I am grateful for having the chance to work with Elsie, she has helped me transform my life!!

I’ve been coaching with Elsie Storm for a few months now and the experience has been rewarding, uncomfortable at times, and quite frankly pretty freaking awesome! I have learned so much about myself and what I have to offer the world through the help of Elsie! I have moved from my own worst-critic to my own biggest cheerleader! Through coaching with Elsie I have learned my own magic in my business and as a result, I get to go to work and feel really good every day! I haven’t had this high of personal production since my first year of being in Herbalife and, even better, I now know how to make a difference in people’s lives; the people I work with have changed from numbers to human beings! I’m so grateful to you Elsie for providing space for me to see my own greatness and encouraging me to show up in it with my family, clients, friends, and in every area of my life!!!
