I have been blessed to meet many wonderful people in my life. Every interaction with them has lead me to who I am today and what led me to coaching. Supporting others comes naturally to me, but don’t take my word for it!
What Others Are Saying…
“She was the compass I needed to help me regroup & recalibrate then choose a direction(s) I wanted to pursue, with personalization & authenticity”
Tami brought a new perspective to my life in a time I needed it the most. I was spinning my wheels, fresh out of a relationship break-up, unhappy in my job, in a bit of a personal fog and having lost track of what purpose I was bringing to my life.
She was the compass I needed to help me regroup & recalibrate then choose a direction(s) I wanted to pursue, with personalization & authenticity, based on what I valued at the core of my being.
Since my sessions with Tami, I have obtained my DREAM JOB! This job represents the first time in my life that my experience and skill set in Tech & Project Management have merged with my passions & interests in coaching in a positive, people-centric corporate culture based around physical and emotional wellness.
I came to Tami approaching my issues with “I have to choose between making a good, regular income in an industry I’m no longer passionate about OR less $$ while building my passion business (coaching).” This mindset was making me feel deprived, trapped, overwhelmed (esp. as a single Mom financially supporting myself & my child full-time) and potentially left with a huge sense of fear of missing out as I’d maybe always wonder “what if I chose the other one, how would my life be better/different?”
I’m still in massive disbelief that I have landed this job and cannot thank Tami enough for challenging me to not only see my value in both of these worlds, but to actually believe in it. This concept alone has improved my wellbeing & self-confidence incredibly.
I only scratched the surface of what Tami brings to the table as a coach in my sessions with her. I would recommend someone who feels stuck in their life, career or business to speak to Tami to gain clarity and have her help them great refocused and take clear, personalized action steps, which will build momentum and confidence for them to eventually take this part of their life to the next level. Tami is amazing!

“She changed the way that I look at life and gave me the courage to step into the unknown.”
I can not say enough about Tami and her fantastic coaching skills and her heart to help others reach their goals and stay focused on their desires!!!
Tami helped me dig deep and find what really lights the fire of my soul desires. She helped me with tools that I had no idea were what I needed.
She changed the way that I look at life and gave me the courage to step into the unknown.
So often we get stuck in the thoughts that we have to get up and go to a 9-5 + job everyday just to make a paycheck so we can go live the life we imagined. Tami helped me see that I can live the life I imagined without working for “the man”.
Thank you, Tami for believing in me, seeing my potential and reminding me that I can do anything in this lifetime and it doesn’t have to be that difficult.

“After working with you, I had a feeling of support/belief that I can turn my passion into a personally rewarding endeavor.”
Working with anyone puts you in a position of discussing areas where you are lacking, being open and exposed. There are always thoughts of “What will Tami think of my challenges/weaknesses?“. I think this is a significant reason that limits people from seeking coaching/training. After working with you, I had a feeling of support/belief that I can turn my passion into a personally rewarding endeavor and confirmation that money is not what matters to me and that I am where I am supposed to be.
You are easy to talk to, very insightful and supportive and I have observed that people, not just me, are comfortable around you. I feel that you genuinely care about helping guide and support others to identify and pursue their passion and overcome challenges. I was impressed and am encouraged to take action on the things we discussed and even more so when you immediately provided information and resources to assist me with my next steps.
I feel the phone meeting was perfect. It made it very easy to allot the time, regardless of how busy I may have been. Like you said, less pressure/time to not have to dress and drive. Not sure if it is true, but people are often more comfortable/safer over the phone than in person – less threatening…back to “How will this go, sharing and being open, etc.?”
Like any relationship it creates a sense of accountability. Your style creates more of a supportive partnership type accountability than just an external check list type accountability. I am encouraged and feel empowered to take a first/next step toward creating my next career.

“You really have done more for me than I can ever explain or repay.”
Hiking didn’t start as something I wanted to love. It evolved from being in a deep depression from a knee injury and a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. I started working with Tami McVay as my wellness coach just so I could get out of the house and make it around the block without being in tears. Each day I added a little more to my route. Soon I found myself walking from my house down to WalMart and around town by the river.
My next goal was to explore the nature trail. I was hitting all my goals and my knee pain was getting better. I kept working at it and decided I wanted to see all the trails that my husband and his friends see on their mountain bikes.
Soon I found myself gone for hours and hours and just enjoying the challenge of how much further I could go. My goal was to be able to hike 20 miles and my long term goal is to hike the Pacific Crest Trail.
It’s been an inspiring journey over the last 10 months. I have a new passion and I’m pretty much depression free. I love it. Thank you Tami for all those long distance phone calls and for helping me set realistic goals and sending me encouraging text messages. You really have done more for me than I can ever explain or repay.
Hike your own hike.

“You have a lot of great ideas and strategy about working out, tech, business and life.”
I love your enthusiasm and knowledge. You know what you’re talking about! I love talking to you and feeling motivated. You are organized, resourceful and knowledgeable. Also friendly and practical. You have a lot of great ideas and strategy about working out, tech, business and life.
I would recommend you to someone who was serious about making changes in her life and ready to commit to taking action. People should know that you’re a no-nonsense, get to the bottom of things kind of person with great ideas and tons of practical knowledge. And you’re awesome!

“She’s approachable and doesn’t judge where you are with your body.”
Tami is totally open, friendly and knowledgeable. She answered all of my questions and explained the science behind all of what we worked on. She’s approachable and doesn’t judge where you are with your body.
I worked out more, cemented my workout schedule, warmed up to the idea of incorporating weights into my workout, and saw better results after starting to use weights. I even had enough energy to move my workout to the early mornings and I NEVER thought I could do that. I’m un-equivocally not a morning person so having the energy and wanting to do this was a big surprise. I could see my stomach getting flatter, too!
I would recommend Tami to anyone who is frustrated that they’re not seeing results even though they’re putting in the exercise time. She’s down to earth and so easy to work with, not like an over-energized gym coach shouting out each rep to you. She’s committed to your success!

“I would recommend Tami without hesitation.”
Tami McVay has a combination of smarts, savvy and compassion when coaching. She assisted me in developing a solid plan to reach my goals, and was able to easily modify her style to meet mine ensuring greater success. I would recommend Tami without hesitation.

“She helped push my limits and succeed at things I never thought I’d do.”
Over the many years that I’ve known Tami she has always been a positive force for me. As I’ve struggled in areas of exercise and weight (just to name a few) she has been there with great suggestions along with great means of supporting me. I’ve always referred to her as “My personal Tony Robbins” due to her level of support and encouragement.
She helped push my limits and succeed at things I never thought I’d do, like the Elephant Rock bike ride of 65 miles in one day. She was there in my training to help cheer me and prove that I did have it in me.
Outside of being a great friend, she is a great force of support for me in life and the challenges it throws at me or the things I want to challenge myself with.
