Heather Moulder is an executive coach, recovering attorney, writer, speaker, wife, mother of two, and cancer survivor.  Heather practiced corporate finance law for over 18 years and built a successful legal practice with an international law firm.  She learned early in her legal career that striving to “have it all” wasn’t all it was cracked up to be (and that she didn’t want “it all” anyway).  So, she reevaluated what she wanted and redefined what success meant to her based on her values, desires, and needs – and built her law practice her way.

After battling an aggressive breast cancer, Heather felt called to serve people in a different capacity and thereafter discovered her passion for coaching.  She is the founder of Course Correction Coaching and helps professional women who are considered “successful” to finally feel that way by getting clarity around what they value and desire, redefining success on their own terms, and learning to confidently leverage their unique strengths and voice to live out their success stories.
