In his primary role as Director of Health and Wellbeing Coaching for YMCA of the North, Tim is responsible for the daily operational management of the health and wellbeing coaching program, as well as its high-performing coaching team. He also leads the development of its digital and in-person service offerings to best meet the growing needs of participants, Y members, and the community.
As a former “workaholic” corporate marketing executive, Tim realized first-hand how an increasingly out-of-balance lifestyle can contribute to growing fatigue, productivity issues, and even health challenges. During his own wellness journey, he gratefully discovered how—when given the chance—our bodies hold tremendous capacity to rejuvenate, heal, and thrive. Out of this healing experience, his growing interest in holistic health morphed into a passion and ongoing quest for additional knowledge and experience in service to others. Tim began coaching because he wanted to help empower and energize individuals through self-directed goals, values-aligned motivation, and lasting change to restore greater life balance and transform personal wellbeing.
During his free time, Tim enjoys connecting with family and friends, being outdoors with nature, hitting the gym, watching movies and sporting events, volunteering, listening to music, reading, and journaling.
