Victoria (VP) WrightGraduate Level Trainer | DEI Educator | IGC Certified Coach
About four months prior to getting into IGC Coach Training, VP and her family were homeless just three months after the birth of her second child. She was at the point of being fed-up with her life and her work, so VP hired a business coach who could assist in helping VP figure out what her own business could be (even though VP had years of experience running and helping other people build businesses for themselves). Turns out, that business was not only as a Life Coach and creative business mentor, but also included using her degree in Comparative Ethnic Studies from Washington State University to educate folks on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. VP was able to blend all of these things into a successful coaching, speaking, and education business to the point where she scaled up to six figures fairly quickly! VP also has a Certificate in Global Leadership from Washington State University, is a Certified Life Coach through Inner Glow Circle and has been featured in and by Yahoo Finance, NPR, MSNBC, Boss Babe, Girlboss, Vox, and Voyage Houston.

Kendell Daly Coach Trainer| ACC Coach

Several years ago, she and her family moved to Maryland. She left behind friends, family,
and her job. It was a big change. She didn’t know what was next in life. She wanted to do something new. She wanted a PURPOSE — but she was cautious about making big changes.
Kendell soon realized that hiring a personal life coach was one of the best decisions she would ever make. With her coach, she learned what she is passionate about in my life and career. She learned that INVESTING in yourself is a powerful thing.
Working on herself prepared Kendell to help others. She learned that she loves people and the Power of Partnership. She strongly believes in connection and community. Now an ICF, ACC Certified Coach, Kendell specializes in helping people in transition, building confidence, and finding their purpose and passion through their work or service to live lives they love.
Kendell came to IGC in 2018 through Mentor Coaching. What she enjoys most about IGC is the community, women empowering women and a safe place for you to become who you are meant to be in this world. For these reasons, her favorite IGC core value is “…Change lives that change other lives” She believes that when you and me become “we” ANYTHING is possible!
