Kirkland, WADesiree Briel Rodi and her husband had just moved to Los Angeles from Seattle. She had given up her dream job to follow her husband on his career journey.

Still, Desiree used this time to seek out the insights of mentors and use the time to attend the Evidence-Based coaching program at Fielding Graduate University. She had just started thinking about launching her own coaching and Emotional Intelligence consulting business when six weeks before she planned to run in the Boston Marathon, she suffered a stroke at only 37 years old.

Ultimately, Desiree ran the marathon.

“I chalked it up to this idea that life is unpredictable,” recalls Desiree. “The stroke showed me, No, this is your time. Own your voice and your accomplishments.’ We don't know if there is a tomorrow. We don't know what's going to come our way. So it’s time to make this happen now.”

Today, Desiree Briel Rodi Consulting & Coaching helps people speak their truth, show up in their world with authenticity, and to help bring ideas, plans and dreams to fruition now rather than putting them off until some future tomorrow.

“What makes us different also gives us our place in the world, like puzzle pieces,” says Desiree.

Desiree integrates insight and intuition with intention and integrity to make the most positive impact.

“What coaching does is it helps us understand that we have the ability to choose differently and create new neural pathways more in service of our goals,” says Desiree.

“Whether it's being more successful in business or in their family and relationships, we can learn to step in differently and really live into our full potential.”
