My name is Naima Spencer. I was born and raised in Morocco and moved to the States in 1998. My journey began in Philadelphia,PA where I lived for 11 years before I moved to the DC area in 2009. While in Philadelphia, I spent many years working multiple minimum wage jobs just to get by, living in less than ideal conditions. My confidence and self-esteem plummeted and I felt stuck and hopeless.
As many of you may have experienced, I have had my own share of challenges and obstacles in life but giving up was not an option for me. I realized early on that I had to make some fundamental changes and become my own savior! Making a decision to change my life was a turning point for me. With determination and persistence, I was able to complete my MBA at Penn State in 2008 and work for one of the biggest organizations in the country. However, my deepest desire was and always has been to connect, work with, and help as many people as I can to break through their limitations, achieve their goals, and live the life they aspire to. This is the reason why I have decided to pursue a coaching career and become a certified Strategic Intervention Coach.
I believe in the power of our thoughts and how they can impact the quality of our lives. I also believe that with the right guidance and tools, we can begin to understand and know ourselves at a deeper level to create a solid foundation for a more fulfilling life.
Seneca said, "If a man knows not to which port he sails, no wind is favorable." If you are not clear about your goals, vision, and destination in life, opportunities you may stumble upon can become irrelevant.
If you can relate to my story, know that you too can achieve your dreams and live a more fulfilling and happy life. I would love to hear from you, get to know you, and be part of your transformation journey…
With love and light,
