Meet Fernando

I became a life coach to help individuals achieve a positive and lasting change by giving them the tools needed to improve and advance their careers and the knowledge to live a healthier and more prosperous life.

After spending over 31 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, U. S. Army, and the Defense Intelligence Agency, I have acquired knowledge and skills to effectively serve the military, government, and First Responder clientele.


I especially enjoy working with Special Operators and the Intelligence Community as I spent my career in Force Recon, Interrogation, and Counter-Intelligence and as a NATO Instructor.  These communities have unique skills and challenges in their work and personal lives that are not always understood by outsiders.   I have worked with clients to successfully advance their careers both within the military and transitioning to civilian life and have shared methods to deal with issues created by PTSD, TBI, and other wartime injuries.

In addition,  I am a professionally trained Evidence-Based Coach certified by the International  Federation and am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Human Development/Evidence-Based Coaching.

As a life coach, I now have the opportunity to give back and share the benefits of what I have learned with other individuals, military members, and groups to help them find their own path and develop the confidence and courage to create a positive change in their lives.
