InFactor & Individual Identity Counseling & Coaching
Cora is a local at heart. Born and raised in North Idaho with the opportunity to live in many of its cities, she understands each community’s unique cultures and people. She is passionate about empowering and equipping individuals with knowledge of their unique natural gifts and how they can use those gifts to strengthen their relationships. The discovery of personal identity and natural inclinations can be a catalyst for meaningful life changes. Cora attended Washington State University, where she double majored in Sociology and received a degree in Psychology, as “nature-vs-nurture” philosophies ignited a profound curiosity within her. Looking to uncover the mysteries of her childhood, she developed a deep desire to help others do the same. From there, she moved and began to advance her career in Jackson Hole, WY. She gained experience in small businesses and non-profit organizations through various roles in landscaping, a sign shop, vacation rental management, dog training, early childhood development, and working with adults with special needs. The diversity of those opportunities drove a mature understanding of the dynamics as well as the people in those environments.
Following a prolonged, painful divorce and custody battle, Cora decided to pursue her dream of mentoring people one-on-one, becoming a certified life coach in hopes that she may directly help individuals find healing and gain clarity along with confidence. Now certified as a facilitator for InFactor, DISC, and other personality assessment tools, her focus is sharing her leadership and team dynamics expertise. Four years ago, Cora returned to Coeur d’Alene, ID, as a single parent to raise her two amazing children alongside close family and friends. She enjoys spending time on Spirit Lake in the summer, downhill skiing in the winter, and visiting hot springs in the mountains. Her academic education, combined with experience and her personal story, allows her to comfortably connect with clients in the process of moving toward personal freedom. She believes a person’s past doesn’t determine who they are but who they become despite those challenges.
