MEET COACH LIZETH
I began my life changing journey in 2006 when I was diagnosed with lupus. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body including skin, joints, and organs. I started experiencing various symptoms such as inflammation causing pain, hair loss, early stages of kidney failure, skin rashes, exhaustion, and a low platelet count which caused extreme bruising all over my body, and even a stroke in 2009. Being diagnosed with lupus was not easy for me to accept, and it completely changed life. Eventually, instead of letting lupus control me and my destiny, I decided to empower and educate myself about my chronic illness so I could lead a happy and healthy life.
Being diagnosed with lupus also helped me realize I was not working and living in my purpose and I knew something needed to change in my life. Around this time I was working to obtain my Master of Human Resource degree from Rollins College and I found success in various organizations as a leader in HR. Working in Human Resources allowed me the opportunity to climb the corporate ladder, help my organizations and employees, and reach my ultimate goal, which at the time was becoming a Human Resources leader and Director where I have managed and directed teams of 40+ direct reports. During that period of my life while pursuing success in my career, my journey with health, healing, purpose, and transformation began which would ultimately change the trajectory of my life. This was the start of my spiritual awakening which helped me realize my life's purpose is to coach, inspire, and help others.
In 2015, I joined the 1st group of Lupus Advocates for the Lupus Foundation of America promoting health and wellness as a motivational speaker, encouraging others to transform their lifestyles by incorporating holistic health and wellness principles, and inspiring people to heal who have struggles related to health and chronic illness. I also began furthering my studies in coaching and created a focus to coach and develop others both personally and professionally inside and outside of the workplace.
I was finally ready to live and work in my purpose helping and coaching others full time and ultimately decided to quit my corporate job and change my career to be a Coach! I founded Discover Your Power®, aka DYP, in February 2016.
The Discover Your Power® coaching philosophy is to take a holistic approach to help and empower people to improve their health and performance, heal, live purposefully and authentically, so they can transform their lives and create the life they want!
Through Discover Your Power®, I offer holistic health and wellness, healing, and purpose coaching, coaching,
yoga, personal training, and nutritional education sessions, motivational speaking, lupus and wellness advocacy.
