Charina's Headshot - Compressed.jpeg

Hi. I'm Coach Charina.

Your Guide to achieving Harmonious Success!

I work with people who want more for themselves...More happiness/ success/ fulfilment/ balance not only in their professional but also personal life. People who are ready to usher in a more empowered version of themselves - to take their career and life to a whole new level.

Achieve Harmonious Success

Coaching is the ultimate investment in yourself! Imagine what it would be like to have a Personal Action Plan to living your best self. As your Coach, we embark on the fun adventure of self-discovery, awareness, and action so that you can create a life with extraordinary results.  “Harmonious Success” is about creating a life and career that is fulfilling to you, based on what's important to you and your core values. This exploration is about discovering and igniting your dreams and making it a reality through goal setting, systems creation and taking actions with transformational change and empowering growth.

Some Client Love...

"Despite considering myself a goal-oriented and ambitious person, working with Charina unveiled a whole new level of what I could be and achieve.  What I thought was the sky was only the first floor!  Both in my personal and professional life.  She is a total game changer."

Daniel Kijo, Feature Story News

"Charina is awesome! Someone who instantly makes you feel comfortable with her warm smile and hilarious personality. In my chaotic lifestyle as an athlete from moving one place to the next, being away from family, and having so many unknowns. Charina has been someone to calm the storm, she has helped me to find clarity on my path of unknowns and helps sort my values and visions for the future. She has gone out of her way to set up appointments and even has been in the stands for one of my big tournaments! I love having her in my corner cheering me along the way. 

She's the magical unicorn!"

Kristen Moncks, Canadian Woman's National Volleyball Champion

"Charina has really helped me not only with my vision as a business owner but also my execution as a leader. She brought together my staff as a cohesive team and as individuals to clarify what their professional goals were. It's made my company better and stronger as a result. As a Coach, she's played a huge part to my personal and business success."

Anael Macha, CEO City Engineering
