Anna Lee Ambrose
Anna has over 20 years of practical coaching experience. She has coached herself first and foremost since her early 20's, and continues to do so almost on a daily basis. "It's about figuring out who you are, what you want out of life, and then creating an achievable plan to go after it. The most challenging part is holding yourself accountable, and that's the most critical piece of the puzzle for most of us." Anna has a gift of seeing the good in all people and the potential in all people. She strongly believes in empowering oneself to achieve the things that are important to one's life. She believes that each person has the ability to achieve his or her optimal life. As a coach, it's her job to help guide her clients to discover that ability and make it happen. Anna's foremost passion and specialty in her coaching practice is working with clients on attracting and developing healthy and fulfilling relationships.
In addition to being an Integrative Wellness and Life Coach running her own coaching practice, Create Balance, Anna is also a mother of 3 teens, co-partner to her husband of 23+ years, and enforcer of all things positive in life. Prior to motherhood, Anna was a Marketing Program Manager and a consulting Project Manager for various hi-tech companies such as IBM and Sun Microsystems in the Northern California bay area. After motherhood, Anna decided to re-position herself career-wise and pursue her true passion of helping individuals and groups of people live their best lives through coaching and teaching. She believes motherhood gave her a second opportunity to get into a career that was her 'true calling', and that all mothers out there can do the same.
Anna's hobbies and interests include living her own whole healthy, optimal life & helping others achieve the same, spending quality time with family and friends, dancing, singing, traveling every year, listening and playing music, snowboarding, hiking, taking walks & riding bikes near the beach, gourmet cooking and volunteering.

Adriana joins the Create Balance team this year as a Certified Integrative Wellness and Life Coach. Her passion is to empower others and continue working on herself to make this a better world.

No matter what events have happened in the past, she will help you discover the magnificent power that your mind has to create the balanced and happy life that we all deserve to have.
Adriana was born in Mexico and completed her college degree in Computer Science which gave her the opportunity to work in a very prestigious bank in Monterrey, Mexico for more than 10 years. There she led a team of more than a dozen people. She then chose to strive for more personal growth and accepted a position at a telecommunications company in the U.S., embracing the challenges of learning a different language and different culture. Her plan was to go back to Mexico where her family lives and use all the learning she acquired, but life had a different plan. She met her now husband of 20 years and formed her own family raising 2 children. Since at the time she couldn’t find a better person to take care of her children while she was working, she decided to embrace the motherhood role, resigned at her company job and reinvented herself as a builder of her children's foundation to be the best they could be. Once her children were on their way building their own future she was able to invest more time to continue her own learning and her quest of expanding horizons and contributing to make a positive impact on the world. Adriana enjoys today working on her passion to help others to reach their goals as well as making a global change by helping communities in third world countries. Adriana also donates her time to supporting her own local community on creating positive change.
