Hello, my name is Andrea Burke! I am a Certified Professional Coach. My goal is to help those who have created a lot of traditional success in their lives, break free from feeling trapped, and transform to create a life on their own terms.
I was a self proclaimed perfectionist. I spent the majority of my life “checking off the boxes” to create the stereotypical life of my dreams. There was pressure to do it all, have it all, and I thought I did, but couldn't understand why I still did not feel complete. This became really clear to me when my last promotion in my corporate marketing job did not provide me with any additional fulfillment. After 10 years invested in my career, I realized I was chasing other people's dreams instead of my own, and I was tired of feeling stressed out.
I realized I was living a life I felt I was supposed to live, not the one I wanted. I wasn't sure what I wanted, but I knew I was not happy, and the pressure to do it all was killing me. With the help of my coach, I am NOW able to live my truest life yet and I want to help others do the same.
Certifications & Credentials
I am a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) with over +350 hours of training from an accredited coaching school, iPEC (Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching). Through iPEC I also received certification (ELI-MP) in conducting what I call the Stress Reaction Assessment. This is a proprietary iPEC assessment that brings to life how you react to stress in your life, how it shows up for you and how well you deal with it.
Prior to becoming a life coach I graduated from Rutgers Business School and began my career in Brand Management (marketing). I worked in Corporate America for a few large Consumer Packaged Goods companies in the US. With 10 years of marketing, management, strategic and financial experience, I know what it is like to be a general manager of +$100MM businesses, manage multi-million dollar budgets, direct reports, as well as cross functional teams. As a result of my ambition and drive,I climbed the career ladder quickly and ended my corporate career as a Group Brand Manager of International Marketing, overseeing +$240MM of business.
