Director of Coaching

Heather has made it her life’s work to help individuals realize their full potential. Beginning her coaching journey as a weight loss coach, she quickly recognized that acceptance and healthy encouragement were the key ingredients to helping others achieve their goals. Her work with singles began in 2007. Since then, she has been dedicated to helping her clients surpass their relationship goals.

Initially working as a matchmaker, Heather swiftly advanced to leadership. In 2020, she became the first person at Love Life Academy to become certified by Dr. Terri Orbuch as a Science-Based Certified Dating and Relationship Coach. Heather collaborated closely with Dr. Orbuch to develop a proprietary coaching program for Love Life Academy that combines Dr. Orbuch’s extensive knowledge with Heather’s matchmaking expertise.

Heather has personally curated Love Life Academy’s team of coaches, emphasizing quality, empathy, and diverse perspectives. Her meticulous selection process has resulted in a well-balanced team who are capable of addressing a broad spectrum of coaching needs.

Beyond her professional endeavors, Heather’s personal passion lies in continuous personal growth. She is an avid podcast listener; her mornings usually feature tips for health from leading experts.

Certified Dating Coach

In 2014, Jess—whose legal name is Jessica, but please only call her that when she’s in trouble!—realized her need to work more directly with people, which launched her career as a professional matchmaker. With a proven track record of hand-selecting successful matches, she became enamored with helping her clients on a deeper level, shifting her attention to dating and relationship coaching.

Driven by a desire to understand the deeper motivations of her clients, Jess pursued additional education and became a Science-Based Certified Dating and Relationship Coach. She has been an integral part of the coaching team since its inception, bringing a wealth of experience and passion to her role.

Her approach involves offering healthy redirection, dedicating substantial time to sit with her clients, and asking thought-provoking questions. Jess sees each client as a unique human, emphasizing personal, direct communication. She encourages clients to view their goals holistically, treating themselves with the kindness they would extend to their best friend.

Jess specializes in coaching men. She understands that many men have learned to be reserved about their feelings. Her coaching style, characterized by confronting challenges head-on through playfulness and silliness, helps bring them out of their emotional shells, something she finds particularly rewarding.

Outside of coaching sessions, make sure to ask Jess about her love for Disney villains. Her appreciation for these characters goes beyond their villainous façade, recognizing the deeper pain and experiences that shape their behavior. Jess believes that everyone has a story to grow through, and her passion for helping others move forward, not just move through challenges, shines through in her coaching approach.
