I am Nicole Kirksey, the founder and Chief Visionary Officer at Foundational Gifts Life & Leadership Coaching. I have been a certified Christian life coach since 2008, and I completed Coaching 4 Clergy training with J. Val Hastings in 2009.
In addition to personal development coaching, I am a university curriculum developer and an award-winning adjunct professor. My focus areas are in the first year experience for non-traditional students and in healthcare administration. Before becoming an educator, I served for about twenty years as a program administrator and chief executive officer in various nonprofit health and human service organizations.
As an equipping ministry, I hosted the Foundational Gifts weekly podcast on the Christian Women Affiliate Network for seven years (before podcasting was podcasting!). My new podcast, With Spirit! (@withspiritpod on social media), is due to launch in fall 2018. I am a lay leader at my multi-site church, CrossPoint United Methodist Church in Harrisburg, PA. There, I serve in leadership, teaching and preaching ministries that fit well with my life mission. Prior to coming to CrossPoint, I was a member of a church planting team with my husband, Vince, and our daughter, Lindsey.
My goal as a coach is to serve as an insightful, understanding person who can help you draw out the purposes, intentions, plans, and counsel that God has placed on your heart (Proverbs 20:5). I would love to discuss the possibility of working together. I can be reached at email@example.com or at (734) 796-7822.
