Presenter: Daleena Ewbank

Daleena Ewbank has worked as a freelance and video ASL interpreter in the Kansas City, MO metro area for many years.  She has acquired multiple certifications and a BS in Life Coaching to go with her degrees in both Psychology and ASL Interpreting. Understanding how deeply the stress of service and caregiving roles affects every aspect of life, she dove into extensive research on coping with stress and successful self-care -- the better to supplement her education and personal experience gained from roles that have included group home manager, caregiver, student, and mother.  In late 2016 New Choices Coaching was started, and Daleena's wealth of experience, compassion, and skill became available to clients. With an easy, friendly manner that makes you feel as if you've known her forever, Daleena helps her clients feel comfortable, supported, and truly listened to as they seek to determine their goals and path forward. She understands that the road is not always easy, and helps you identify what blocks may be in your way; her open-mindedness and extensive experience in caregiving fields lend an empathy to her work that is all too rare. Her goal is for you to feel in control of yourself and your life, to help you create a plan and direction and hold to it.
