The first time Carrie-Ann Tkaczyk (Kay-zik) watched a coaching demonstration in 2014, she knew that coaching was her calling. She always loved to help others, and after over twenty years in education, coaching seemed like an exciting new frontier. She enrolled in a Masters in Evidence-based Coaching program at Fielding University and moved from the classroom to an internal coaching position within a year. A few years later, Carrie-Ann was able to launch her own private practice and is thrilled to be sharing her passion for coaching with students.


The founder of Journey Through Coaching and a professional certified coach through the International Coaching Federation (ICF), Carrie-Ann is committed to ongoing learning and growth. She has added certifications as a Wellness Practitioner and Mindfulness Meditation Teacher, and is an active member in several coaching associations. 


Carrie-Ann's cross-cultural lens and mindfulness knowledge enable her to bring a holistic approach to personal and professional development. Her cultural knowledge has been deeply honed by decades of working with students from many cultures, her equity leadership in education, and working in Nepal and Turkey.  Her varied experiences include educator, teacher mentor, mindfulness meditation teacher, nonprofit specialist, internal coach/mentor, and small business owner. She recently finished a year exploring the West and currently resides in Flagstaff, Arizona with her partner and dog.
