“I chose the Health Coaching Certificate because of Georgetown’s reputation, its Jesuit core value of ‘care for the whole person,’ and timing. The Jesuit value was important to me based on my belief that we are multidimensional beings. I had not attended college in many years and was a bit apprehensive about re-entering a formal program; however, taking classes at Georgetown felt very comfortable. The faculty and staff are vested in each student’s successful learning experience and the application of our new skills post-certification.

“This experience renewed my interest in formal education, built my confidence in coaching skills, and increased my respect for the staff and faculty of Georgetown University and its Institute for Transformational Leadership. The program was an extraordinary experience. I grew personally and professionally and I acquired skills that will enable me to be more effective in my current leadership role and as a health coach.”
