About Aileen

2013-01-17_14-06-29_998 (2)Thank you for visiting my site!  I am an author, speaker, leadership and personal life coach, and I’m also a credentialed minister with the Assemblies of God. After spending my twenties frustrated with stagnation and mourning shattered dreams, I rediscovered my passion for ministry while switching careers from healthcare and biotech to coaching because I discovered that coaching was my dream job.  As a Christian Coach, I’m a firm believer that people can achieve success in the image of Christ. My motivation to become a coach came from a deep desire to walk alongside individuals seeking to enrich their lives and to take proactive steps to reach their dreams. I coach people through setting personal and professional goals, making decisions, and creating a plan to reach their goals. Once I started training and practicing as a life coach, I developed a passion to coach ministry leaders who want to grow in their leadership skills and who want to build strong teams. In addition, I coach people with leadership potential to develop them into the leaders of tomorrow.

By sharing my testimony, I aspire to demonstrate how the Lord has worked all things together for my good (Romans 8:28), redeeming even my most painful experiences, such as being diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age twenty four. His work in me has been  to equip me for His work; nothing was ever wasted. I want to assist people who  are in transition and crisis, like I was, to reach the amazing life God has designed for them.  I’m passionate about discipleship, and my joy is to coach people through the discovery of their God-given calling, walking in their purpose, and living a fulfilling, abundant life.

I am a Philadelphian, who grew up in a tight-knit Puerto Rican community in the Feltonville section of the city so I’ve had both the experience of a big city and a small community.  I am a native Spanish speaker.  In 2003, I graduated from Penn State University with dual degrees in Advertising/Public Relations and Psychology, with a French minor.   My ministry activities include teaching Bible studies, conducting workshops, and speaking at conferences on the topics of purpose and successful Christian living.  I’m a dog-lover, a novice seamstress, an experimental cook, and a music aficionado.  One item high on my bucket list is to travel internationally and domestically, taking in the beauty God has created and experiencing the richness of different cultures and subcultures.  I live in the Philadelphia area.  There’s no place like home, and there’s no cheesesteak like those at home!
