Erika L Davis CPC, ELI-MP

I have been a single-mom-professional-woman-entrepreneur for over 20 years. I know what it's like to want it all, to be inspired to live out your passion and also to feel completely nutty trying to make it all happen! In a world where there is so much pressure to be and have it all, sometimes what we really WANT gets lost in the shuffle.

I’ve had a great career, including 10 years as the owner and operator of Creekside Books & Coffee in Skaneateles, New York, but it wasn’t until recently that I found a way to rid myself of the “shoulds” and live a meaningful, authentic and inspired life. That’s why I decided to become a certified professional coach. I wanted to marry my professional experience with my true next step; to help other women do the same.

I have over 20 years of business planning, operations and development experience and over 320 hours of coaching training. I have also spent several recent years in higher education assisting professionals during their transition into new roles, including assisting with networking, resume and cover letter writing, and interviewing skills. I provided many of my clients with moral support during their transitions and coaching surrounding their career goals. I am able and ready to assist anyone who is willing to help themselves in taking the next step in their business or career...and in life!
