Meet the ICF Georgia Board of Directors

Wanzel Jessie


Why I am serving on the Board: 

My passion and purpose is to help people improve their quality of life by finding and fulfilling their purpose by achieving their goals, dreams and aspirations and I have found that ICF-GA is an organization that serves the local coaching community in the same way. Helping coaches achieve their personal and professional goals and becoming a better version of themselves allows all of us to be a better servant to the ones we serve. Serving on the board allows me to connect and support the larger community to achieve their personal development goals and live their best life.

Fun Fact About Me:

If I won the lottery, I would buy an RV Bus and travel the country and visit every state picking up friends along way in each of the states they lived. What a great adventure that would be?

Why I am serving on the Board:

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) represents the Gold Standard of the coaching profession, and our ICF-Georgia Charter Chapter is one of the top regional chapters in membership and engagement.  It is an honor to serve on the ICF-Georgia Board!

I firmly believe that Coaching and continuing professional development are the keys to professional success.  In my practice, I help my Coaching clients become CEOs of their worlds!  I want to bring that same entrepreneurial mindset and positive energy to help my fellow Georgia-based coaches reach their professional goals.

Fun Fact About Me: 

 I am both left-brained and right-brained.  I hold an MBA in Finance and can learn how to play musical instruments, especially woodwinds, quite easily. I was trained in the Yamaha Method as a child and concurrently graduated from traditional high school and the Virginia Governor’s School for the Arts with a concentration in classical flute performance.
