Who is Naomi? In 2005, I started my own company, Consults Unlimited Inc. I have always had a genuine, compassionate concern for people. Surprisingly, nursing was not my first choice for a career. My grandmother was an OR tech. My mother and both of my aunts were nurses. I remember thinking “Can’t anyone think of something else to do in this family?” I trained as a home health aide because I needed a job. I soon realized there was something that struck a chord with me. Nursing was my calling. My nursing career became a natural venue for me to coach hundreds of people over the years. It has been said that I have a good sense of humor and an innate ability to put people at ease. I care enough to listen and hear when people speak. I LOVE helping people overcome obstacles and find success.
Coaching Philosophy Everyone has the God given right to “prosper and be in health even as the soul prospers” At times we need to ‘get out of our own way.’ Coaching is a valuable tool that allows people to see their choices clearly.
Nursing Career I have been in nursing for over 35 years. My practice areas include Med-Surg, Substance Abuse, Cardiac Step Down, Prison Health, Managed Care, School Health, Hospice and Homecare. I have over 20 years experience in management and hold a Masters Degree in Health Administration.

Author of Lead Powerfully From Within (February 25, 2017). “Leading Powerfully From Within” is for the person who is looking for their ‘WHY.’ The person who knows there is a reason for being here on this earth that’s bigger than themselves. Finding your ‘why’ is all about finding your purpose.
Everyone instinctively knows there should be a purpose or reason for living. How do you figure out what your purpose is and how to manifest it effectively with power? First, by understanding who you are! Real leadership begins with being able to lead yourself through proper introspection and alignment of your mind, body, soul and spirit
