Associate Certified Coach (ACC)


I am Susan Mitchell, J.D., CPCC, ACC

I am married, a mother of two daughters, and in the second half of my life. I live in Ankeny, Iowa.

An important personal value is to give back because I have been blessed. I was blessed with loving parents. I am blessed with a close family, opportunities to travel, and professional and personal growth opportunities. I have also been blessed with many storms in my life, and yes, blessed. I believe that God takes you through it, and, in return, we are to support and encourage others.

It seems as though I have been coaching my entire adult life. I have an undergraduate degree in education and a Juris Doctorate from Drake University Law School. I coached my clients, giving my best legal advice. I coached my students at Des Moines Area Community College with their career choices while teaching Business Law and other law-related courses. Now I have the opportunity to coach professionally, having completed my coach certification through the Co-Active Training Institute, achieving the Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) designation. I am also a member of the International Coach Federation. I am a heath and wellness coach, trained at Mayo clinics in Rochester Minnesota. Finally I am certified in Clifton Strengths Assesments.

My approach to coaching is very co-active. I consider my role to be a thinking partner focusing on the client's agenda. The client and I collaborate as we move things forward toward desired goals. We will dig together to deepen self-awareness, self-discovery, and learning that helps the client design their best life with balance, purpose, and aliveness.
