Phoebe is a wife, mother and is currently the CEO/Founder of Celebrate You Coaching. Phoebe graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a Child and Adolescent Development major and has been an elementary teacher in Southern California as well as Northern California (although she admits that she's converted to the bay area!). Aside from teaching, Phoebe has been a program director in schools and ministries. She has been the keynote speakers at women's conferences and regularly leads workshops and seminars on the topics of career and life, and a dash of business consulting. Her current role in overseeing this organization does not stop her from what she loves best, coaching others. She also currently sits on the board in Employers Advisory Council with the Alameda chapter. At any given time, Phoebe is coaching a handful of individuals along with her team. Phoebe lives in the East Bay with her husband (also a coach at cyc) and two songs. The older son has already started to "coach" his brother-- must run in the family!

Favorite thing to celebrate: I love to create songs with my children while doing menial  tasks so they feel like the task is fun. So really, celebrating when my kids do their chores! That and spontaneous dance parties in jammies!
