About Dianne

At the age of five God instilled in me a deep desire to help and comfort people, and become a nurse. I graduated from Roanoke Memorial Hospital School of Professional Nursing over 37 years ago. I've had an amazing career caring for patients, their families and friends. I worked over 15 years as an Intensive Care Unit Nurse where I became proficient at extracting human behaviors and family dynamics during real life crisis all while caring for their critical health diagnoses.

My experience also includes ten years as the Staff Educator in the largest Medical Call Center in the South Eastern US where we handled 50 -70K telephone triage calls per month. Through this position I was afforded the opportunity to speak, train and work with the most amazing nurses throughout the country.  In addition, I am also a Certified John Maxwell Coach which credentials me to do what I've done my entire nursing career.

The Elevated Soul

The Elevated Soul was born out of my own personal growth and is committed to helping women who are ready to move from a life of merely existing and mediocrity into a life of loving and honoring self while creating a meaningful life where inward peace and joy are experienced. There are many symptoms that one may present with: palpitations, insomnia, weight gain, pressure in the chest/throat, inability to focus, unable to turn mind off at night, disconnected from self, a feeling of spinning and spiraling all at the same time, hopelessness, even procrastination. Often thoughts of being unworthy, not good enough, unloved and not being acknowledged plague one's subconscious. This can all lead one to become stagnate within their own life.

Through the coaching process you are guided to identify barriers that have limited one from fully engaging; release ones discovered blocks and build a toolbox filled with various strategies to pull from when facing obstacles.  My goal is to keep other women from experiencing overwhelm while creating a joyful, intentional life. If any of this feels familiar with you, please give me a call.  Please set up an introductory appointment where we can begin your personal "quitting" plan.
