My name is Ashlee Sikorski, and I currently live in Portland, Oregon with my husband Trevor. Dwelling in Portland, I have taken on many hobbies including gardening, raising chickens and hiking. I enjoy having conversations with close friends, eating good food with people I love, and am committed to being a lifelong learner for the sake of having the biggest societal impact. This is what has drawn me to life-coaching.
I have experienced the freedom in being asked powerful questions that created pathways in my own journey, leading me to self-discovery. Howard Thurman, who was a Civil Rights activist and Theologian, claimed, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” By receiving coaching, you will find personal successes, remove obstacles and rediscover exciting parts of yourself. But for what purpose? What motivates me is seeing my clients learn what makes them tick and then discover how to get there. Great societal impact!
I graduated with a Bachelor of Art's Degree in Cultural Anthropology from Vanguard University and a Graduate Certificate in Transformational Coaching from Western Seminary. Western's program is under the curriculum of the ICF (International Coaching Federation). The ICF is the gold star of coaching-accrediting bodies. I think being either a certified and/or licensed coach is essential in this line of work. Although I mainly work independently, I am an affiliate coach for JEC. JEC Affiliates work alongside each other and come from all across the globe! As you could imagine, this makes for excellent zoom calls.
