I hope you will give me a chance to prove to you that you can achieve whatever you set out to do. I am a big believer in perseverance and hard work, but we all need a little help to get where we are going. That is why I am excited to be taking part on this Wyzant platform. It is such an opportunity to offer my skills online and get to know people like you who are pursuing their passions and dreams.
I am myself a life-long learner. I have an online practice as an executive life coach and offer Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I host two podcasts, and have published novels, nonfiction, articles and more. When I was young, I taught middle school and ran a theater school for kids in Northern California. I have been the CEO of medium to large nonprofits. I happen to be an excellent cook who has run an event catering business, and cooking club with over 150 members, and has won several grilling competitions. Since my retirement from the nonprofit sector and going back to school for the coaching and CBT certifications, I have loved the life of a digital nomad traveling the world. I just love helping people find passion and achieve their goals, which is the constant in my life. I am here to help you reach your goals.

I have published a variety of articles, eBooks, nonfiction books, and novels. I write the scripts for two podcasts. I taught novel writing through UC Berkeley’s Extension. I will help you from concept to finished manuscript. My coaching background means I can do more than just share writing technique. I can provide you with accountability and motivational tools. I am particularly excited to help new authors of fiction get their feet wet.

Lots of laundry lists in these profiles! Here is what I can promise you. I will use my experience and skills to partner with you to meet your needs and achieve your dreams. We will laugh a lot, we will both learn, and you will reach your goals.

Public Speaking

In my role as a nonprofit CEO I have had to speak in front of every type of group from teenagers to legislatures. I've run meetings, lead large executive group planning sessions, spoken in front of large congregations, officiated weddings and baptisms, done keynotes, spoken at formal social events and fundraisers and in front of legislative bodies. I have worked with staff and volunteers to help them be more confident speakers.

Proofreading

I've been a writer my entire life. I know the importance of having an editor and proofreader! When you are looking at your own work your brain plays tricks on you and you miss obvious errors. I tutor and teach writing, which means I read, proof and edit my students work. It has to be done correctly and thoroughly. Let me make your work the very best it can be before you send it into the world.

Writing

Writing

I've written since childhood. My publications include business articles, nonfiction books, fiction books, and scripts, along with many years of report and academic writing. A few of my fiction pieces have been fantasy and scifi focused, which translates into my being a tiny bit geeky, and very imaginative. I'd love to work with you.

Cooking

I have owned a catering and event management company. For many years I did consulting to restaurants helping improve menus, train kitchen staff and line cooks, train service and front of house staff, and developing menu item recipes. For a decade I ran a cooking club with well over 100 members at any given time. I've won multiple grilling competitions, specializing in open fire and charcoal grills. I am both a cook and a baker. I focus on healthy but beautiful and tasty food. I will help take the fear out of food preparation assuring you have the techniques and the simple recipes to wow yourself, family, and friends.

cooking class

I really enjoyed my session with Caryl. She was very patient in explaining and even prepared an outline to guide us during our first session. I also prepared a list of questions that I had and she answered them in a very clear and practical manner. Cooking is subjective but she taught me a lot of basic points that can help me as i explore more on my own. Looking forward to our next class!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Caryl did a wonderful job helping me on my sales pitch assignment. Not only did she help we come up with ideas and organize my sales pitch, but she also gave me great tips on how to become more confident in front of the camera!

Carina, 5 lessons with Caryl

Neurobiology paper

Caryl was very patient and had very great insights on how to write my paper. She was able to take her time to go through the paper thoroughly. And she had positive things to say and willing to still teach me more techniques on becoming a better writer after she helped me with my paper! Caryl I thank you and it will not be the last time we work together.

Thaina, 3 lessons with Caryl

Focused and effective

I enjoyed my session with Caryl. I like to keep on pace and focused on the topic I wish to learn. She had everything ready before our session which was so refreshing! All the boards with practice questions and specific to MY needs, so she went through and took the time to make sure session was ready and for her student to learn effectively in the time we had.

Very insightful at giving directions and ideas

My daughter is an ESL student and struggles with our writing techniques. I feel Carly will help guide her exactly where she needs to be and benefit her ways of writing papers in college.
