I have been a member of the IAC since 2009 and am now certified by the IAC® with MMCC status. Over my 35+ years of professional life as a nurse, Family Nurse Practitioner, and my 10+ years as a certified life coach, I am excited to champion the development of life coaching as an elegant and potent way to promote global peace, kindness, health and self-acceptance for all people.

I feel committed to supporting life coaches worldwide to do the work they’re called to do in the name of “Expanding The Path to Coaching Mastery”, the IAC® slogan.

It is with a sense of humility that I am able to serve as a member of the IAC® Board of Governors.

I was initially certified as a life coach by the Fearless Living Institute and am currently a Master Coach, Mentor Coach and Certified Trainer for the Fearless Living institute. I have been the director of the International Coaching Program, now known as the LCCP, for the Fearless Living Institute. I am currently serving as mentor for the LCCP.

I have been writing for the IAC VOICE™ since 2013. In addition I have been writing for the Huffington Post since 2012. I have created and participated in mastermind groups focused on business building and professional growth.

My husband and I live in southwest Colorado with winter jaunts to southeast Florida. I have 2 adult children, that I am very proud of, and my first grandchild who inspires me to continue this work for a peaceful world for him and for  children the world over.

Hello! Thank you for your interest in learning a bit about the members of your IAC Board of Governors. The following is some background on me, Catherine Miller.
Back in 1998 I read a newspaper article that opened my eyes and spoke to my heart…it described what I had been doing for the past 4 years but didn’t have a name for – Life Coaching! I found some coaching resources on-line but it was from 2003 and on, when I joined the International Association of Coaching (IAC) as a Founding Member that I obtained the guidance and means to certification I had been seeking.
The IAC’s values and mission aligned with my own and with that of the many wonderful people I met from around the world who were also seeking to develop their coaching skills to a level of excellence and effectiveness. In 2006 I earned my Master Masteries Coach certification and since then have continued to appreciate the IAC’s encouragement and support to continue to grow myself and my skills in my professional life. But it doesn’t stop there, for the inspiration from IAC role models and the skills and insights I glean for my professional growth transfer to and enrich my personal growth and satisfaction too.
Like all IAC members, true to the IAC’s philosophical roots, I draw on learned skills and experience from my past – corporate and small business in my case – to more fully understand, appreciate and implement the IAC’s 9 Masteries of Coaching. Studying and practicing the IAC Masteries continues to develop, refine and enrich my skills, awareness and interactions.
I am a member of the Canadian Chapter of IAC Coaches – an animated, talented, caring, supportive and mutually inspiring group.
As an IAC Examiner, a Member of the Board of Governors and a Researcher for the IAC, I feel honoured to give back to the IAC coaches, aspiring coaches and members, and to the coaching profession globally.
For 10 years my coaching focus was on helping employees in large and small companies transfer leadership skills into their work and personal lives in ways that enhanced their satisfaction, connection and effectiveness. For the past 15 years I have applied my coaching to helping people cultivate their emotional well being. I am the creator and facilitator of The Café of Well-Being – a series of interactive coaching conversations with individuals and small group participants that foster their ability to experience more vitality, clarity and equanimity more often and for longer periods of time. These conversations incorporate a blend of evidence-informed understandings, ancient wisdoms and dashes of humorous illustrations to shed light on systems in the brain and body that unnecessarily create and ramp up stress, and each person’s innate capacity to exercise their human agency to see with different eyes, act on opportunities and change perceived constraints into meaningful actions and interactions.
Additional Background:
 Certified Coach through the HeartMath Research Institute – building resilience and emotional regulation based on evidence-informed practices
 Trained in the professional application of Positive Neuroplasticity – the science of using our experiences in ways that promote lasting positive changes in the brain and thus lasting improvements in mood, interpersonal skills, self-worth, and resilience
 Certified Group Coach through School of Coaching Mastery
My husband and I, with our feline family member, live on a rural property close to friends and surrounded by nature where we enjoy a variety of outdoor recreational activities throughout the four seasons – from kayaking to cross country skiing. I am grateful for the people and these elements in my life – they all contribute significantly to my well being!

As a part-time translator for 20+ years, he devoted himself to help people communicating to break the language barrier, to understand across the cultures.
