About Beverly Lucas

 

Hello everyone, I'm Beverly Lucas. I was born in PA, raised in NJ, and now call MD my home. I have three incredible adult sons and one fabulous daughter-in-love. My long, winding road to coaching started in higher education, then to graduate school for a Master's Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy, home to the rear and homeschool my three sons, then back to work after divorce.

 

God wastes nothing!

 

I now direct the Counseling & Soul Care Ministries at my church and witness first-hand the healing power and grace of God in the lives of hurting people. While running a small professional organizing business, I discovered the sheer joy of encouraging and empowering healthy women to dream big and win. Although I love working at my church, life coaching provides a nice balance and a career that I hope to maintain for years to come. When I'm not counseling, organizing, or coaching, I enjoy a good book, the company of a good friend, a good seafood meal, and an I Love Lucy marathon.
