And that discovery was a surprise to me! I was working as a high school English teacher, coaching the sport I love most (VOLLEYBALL!), and my wife and I were just about to welcome our first child. On paper, I had all I ever wanted, so you can imagine my surprise when I found a feeling inside me that whispered, “You can do more.”

So I investigated programs that offered coach training and found the fantastic Coach Training EDU and started right away (side note: if any of you are thinking of starting a career in coaching, I can’t recommend CTEDU enough – check them out!).
Fast forward to about 6 months later, and I was opening PEAK by Brydon, LLC.

I’ve always been a lifelong learner, so I kept training. I kept partnering. I kept growing. Soon, I was ready to apply for a certification through the gold standard in coaching: 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑰𝑵𝑻𝑬𝑹𝑵𝑨𝑻𝑰𝑶𝑵𝑨𝑳 𝑪𝑶𝑨𝑪𝑯 𝑭𝑬𝑫𝑬𝑹𝑨𝑻𝑰𝑶𝑵 (𝑰𝑪𝑭).
That hard work paid off when I was awarded my 𝗔𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗰𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗖𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝗖𝗼𝗮𝗰𝗵 credential (click the link to see what all goes into earning an ACC from the ICF!), which recognizes my commitment to the people I’m lucky enough to work with and the high professional and ethical standards of the coaching industry.⠀

I will continue to evolve and progress so that I can serve others as best I can. That’s my promise to everyone I work with, and it would be a privilege to partner with you.⠀
