Transformational Coach Kerri Balliet’s calling is to help people connect with the world around them through personal authenticity. Kerri found herself drawn to the experience of being human after she watched her wife of 12 years fight and eventually lose a hard-fought battle with ovarian cancer — a loss that she thought she would not survive. And, in 2017, after spending 35 years in corporate operations and management, leading large teams through many changes and re-organizations, she found herself transitioned out of what she thought was her dream job. It was through these experiences that Kerri’s own transformational journey began — her need to take a deep dive into her own internal operating system so she could find her authentic self instead of being the person she thought she needed to be inspired her to become a transformational coach.

In 2019, she received her Transformational Leadership certificate from Cardinal Stritch University, and her CVACC transformational coaching accreditation from Coachville. In 2020, she recently her certification as a Higher Ground Leadership® coach with The Secretan Center.
