Hi, my name is Jessica Weir. I'm a certified professional life coach trained at iPEC, Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. I am an introvert and proud to be one. As a naturally soft-spoken person, I understand the struggle to find your own voice. I'm an observer who loves people. I want to share what I see and what I've learned. I have a commitment to self-expression, authenticity and honesty. I'm gentle and kind coupled with a directness and strength in offering powerful insights. I've got a sense of humor and a big, infectious laugh. I love to read, be at home, in nature and with close friends or other like-minded folks. Coaching is my passion. My intuitive strengths and sensitive nature allow me to be of service and help people transform. I know what you're going through, I've probably been there, and I'm here to listen, offer my support as a coach so you can thrive.
I'm originally from a small town in upstate NY. I've always been quiet, sensitive, intelligent and athletic. I was an exchange student to France from 17 to 18. That was a big year for me. I had to speak and make mistakes in order to learn French and communicate. I had a lot of fun too.
From there I went to Cornell to become an environmentalist, instead I became an actor. Which took me to New York City where I went to theater school at The Neighborhood Playhouse. This is where the deep work began for me. Speech and voice training using the Alexander Technique had a tremendous effect. Allowing me to physically access a more supported and louder voice, which I previously thought wasn't possible. Acting class was amazing and allowed me to feel my feelings and be more myself than ever before. After 9 years in NYC I needed a change and decided to step away from acting and pursue life coaching. Which was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I moved to LA in 2015 because it offered the benefits of city life in a pretty and relaxed environment and one where there's an interest and openness to coaching.
I am available to work with you in person or over the phone and through Skype from anywhere. Physical distance is just fine. The work is just as powerful.
