After a successful 10-year career in social work Debbie Lacy started her coaching business, The Inspired Life. As a social worker, she provided crisis intervention and ongoing counseling for youth and parents, specializing in serving diverse populations. Debbie later supervised staff and managed programs in a large nonprofit organization. Seeking a new way of working with people that would be autonomous, creative, and life-giving, She began training at Coaching From Spirit and was certified there as a Master Coach. Debbie has built a thriving practice based on word-of-mouth referrals, which has kept her connected to a stream of clients who are all a great fit for her approach. She draws on personal experience in her coaching work. Faced with a rapid-fire series of major life transitions, Debbie uses coaching tools everyday to reconnect with herself and uncover strengths within—initially just to put one foot in front of the other, and then to create new dreams and beginnings.
