About Coach Wes
A Road Less Travelled...
Wes has a rich and varied career as a 17-year educator. He first got his teaching wings as a Peace Corps volunteer in a remote village in Kyrgyzstan. Upon returning to the States, Wes taught elementary school in Brooklyn, NY through the NYC Teaching Fellows Program. Later, he taught outdoor education and even Russian language to high school and college students. After this time, Wes then worked with children at two international schools in Kyrgyzstan and Singapore, becoming the first teacher at Stamford American International School to win the Stamford Values award for embodying all four Stamford values of Compassion, Courage, Integrity, and Ingenuity.
Since 2015, Wes has been an avid reader and researcher in both Eastern and Western psychologies. In December, 2021, he completed a Master’s Degree program in Positive Psychology and Coaching. Wes is a member in good standing of the International Coaching Federation (ICF), a leading organization for coach training and ethics in the world.
As a coach, Wes enjoys helping clients gain a broader perspective of their own opportunities and talents. He is strongly interested in issues of self-identity, self-compassion, promoting an other-centered view of the world, and how they foster connection, meaning, and growth. He currently supports clients in Bloomington, IN… and beyond!
