Jill Bennett

Full-time marketing professional, avid sailboat racer, wife, mom and now coach. Who knew? Not me when I walked into this amazing professional development opportunity that turned into a life-changing experience. Anne Arundel Community College was launching an ICF-certified Engagement Coaching program that rivaled ones only offered at four-year colleges. They claimed vast improvement in leadership and life and I thought, I'm in! I want to up my leadership game with solid coaching skills. Who wouldn't? That is until I was a couple hours into the first day of the nine-day of training when I realized just how deep and substantive this experience was going to be. Uh oh, I'm in (it) alright. What have I done? Two years later, I am an ICF-certified associate certified coach helping change the lives of students, staff, faculty and private clients.
