Margaret Lorenz, BS, ACC, CPCC


Margaret Lorenz is a former engineer turned voice actor, professional coach, and happiness enthusiast!  After spending over thirteen years in the telecommunications industry in a variety of positions, from designing data networks to sales management, Margaret left to follow her dreams. 

Using an analytical approach, as well as her intuition and creativity, Margaret charted out a new path for herself. By facing her fears and taking risks, she made her dreams come true, and in the process discovered that we all have the power to create true joy and happiness in our lives. Her passion is to inspire people to de-stress, achieve their dreams, and get happy!

Margaret started her mindfulness meditation practice in 2007 when she was going through a rough patch in both her career and personal life and realized she needed to learn some stress management skills!  She found mindfulness meditation and hasn't looked back.  It profoundly changed her life as she learned to slow down, notice the details around her, and be grateful for what she had. 

Margaret completed her professional coach training and certification program at the prestigious Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC).  She also holds the International Coach Federation credential of Associate Certified Coach (ACC.)
