Nicole Owen, CPCC

Within the first 10 minutes of her first Co-Active Coaching course, Nicole saw the untapped potential that had been hiding inside—which found expression in working with artists and women. As an artist and performer herself, Nicole understands their need to embody creative purpose through authenticity, belief, and courage. It is her desire to help others uncover their own personal wholeness and untapped potential so they may create the life they long for. Inspired by her experience in CTI’s Co-Active Leadership Program, she co-founded In The Change Room, a community to create conversation around body image and reconcile the relationship women have with their bodies.
