Hello I'm Nella Castro, I'm a Career transition and Business coach who help women leverage their skills to start and build an online service-based business they love. I have 10+ years as a school counselor and educator helping others find their passion/purpose, achieve their goals, reach a success mindset, and providing educational guidance.
I have a B.A. degree in Psychology from San Francisco State University and a Master's degree in Educational Counseling from San Jose State University. I was born in Managua, Nicaragua and at the age of two, I moved to California with my parents and siblings. I was raised in the Bay Area and now reside in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.
After I graduate school, I became a high school counselor where I provided academic and career guidance to students. Loving the career counseling aspect of my job, I knew I wanted to do more of it, but was not completely sure what direction to go with it.
After a couple of years of feeling stuck and feeling uncertain about the next direction I wanted to take my career towards, I started researching other careers, joining networking groups and sought out the help of a coach.
It was then where it became clear that I wanted to start my own coaching business where I can continue my passion of helping others and use my counseling guidance skills to not only reach high school students but also help women who want a career change or start a business they will feel fulfilled in. After getting the clarity I needed, I took action by enrolling in a coaching certification program as well as in a business development program and began my journey.
I'm truly passionate about empowering women to start their entrepreneurial journey and achieve fulfillment not only in the work they do but also in the life they want to live. I believe that both go hand in hand, and that by exercising their unique gift and living their purpose it will show in other areas of their lives.
Through my own personal experience and through helping others in their career and business pursuits, I know what it feels like to be at a crossroads and it has inspired me to help other women in their journey. Because of my experience, I'm able to connect with clients and provide the help and guidance they need.
I'm committed to ensuring that every client I work with who puts in the work and is willing to get out of their comfort zone; will be successful & fulfilled by pursuing their true calling they were meant for.
