Why do you choose to serve as a leader for ICF New Mexico? Being involved and spending time with ICFNM members and getting to know them in a more personal way through the dialog we had about what they wanted from the chapter. The upbeat and positive connections were energizing. Having an opportunity to help lead the chapter provides a way for me to continue the work of the chapter and enhance it by bringing my skill set to add balance to the leadership team.

Lisa BrewerPast President – Lisa Brewer

I love helping people discover how to apply their strengths creatively and courageously to achieve their goals. We unearth beliefs and assumptions that are holding them back and incorporate neuroscience and other proven methodologies to make thinking and acting differently easier than they thought possible. As they step into the best version of themselves, they start seeing outcomes in multiple aspects of their lives and become more joyful, confident, and centered. I’ve led teams and collaborated across departments and organizations to identify root causes to issues and develop and implement solutions. PCC, CPCC, Certified NLP Master Practitioner, Certified Positive Intelligence Coach.

Why do you choose to serve as a leader for ICF New Mexico?  I love creating and building things in collaboration with others. ICF New Mexico allows me to do that with kind, highly competent and dedicated professionals who become friends and trusted colleagues. An added perk is it has led to coaching opportunities and an expanded ability to refer.
