My name is Karine Galland, as a life coach I’ll be happy to help you and support you in your personal and/or professional growth path.
After graduating from highschool in 1989, I spent a few months in the United States where I discovered the “DREAM BIG , WORK HARD ” mentality which was a real epiphany. I had always been a dreamer with a true passion for meeting people, learning new things and travelling. From this moment on I decided to always follow my dreams and make them come true.
After studying theater and cinema in Normandy and Paris, I wrote and produced 2 documentaries. Then my priorities shifted as family life took over. I moved into a house in the Corsican mountains (the most beautiful middle of nowhere for a urban girl like me). I became a stay-home mom, then a working mom, struggling to find balance between love and money. Fortunately, my great adaptability to just about any environment allowed me to jump and seize all meaningful opportunities. So I worked for publishers, set up my own video production company, gave acting classes to autistic and psychotic kids, taught script-writing at the local university, imported jewels from China, worked as a receptionist, a non profit CEO’s assistant… I know, it sounds kind of chaotic but somehow it made sense to me since I was following my heart.
All through that professional journey, I developed resources to adapt smoothly to various coworkers and work procedures and anywhere I went, I kept helping and cheering people around me. It’s just who I am, I love solving problems, encouraging creativity and autonomy. One fabulous day, I discovered that this tireless mood booster ability was actually a job that I could get paid for ! It finally all made sense so I chose that path, for good. I studied coaching techniques, read tons of personal development books and underwent coaching myself in order to make a real job out of my natural talents for coaching.
Feel free to contact me, if you have any questions, or want to share your story with me.
