Meet your Coach!
Hi! I'm Nicole! a.k.a. Coach Nicole, Coach Burow, Coach B . . .
As an Integrative Health and Wellness Coach, I believe in three essential areas of focus from which all health and wellness heals, grows, and thrives:
I have learned through trials and triumphs that I am an encourager, collaborator, networker, connector, coordinator, developer. . .and a perpetual student!
I'm a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES), an American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)-Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Inclusive Fitness Trainer, (Wellcoaches)-Certified Health & Wellness Coach, and Exercise is Medicine® (EIM) Credential Level 1. [And my dog is a Certified Therapy Dog!] I graduated from the University of Florida with a Master of Science degree in Health Education & Behavior.

Some other tidbits
I am a huge fan of fresh fruit, travel, nap time, a good book, and dogs! I am proficient in American Sign Language. The BWCA is one of my favorite vacation places :) I am an advocate for YOUR health and wellness; I encourage a holistic view and approach to becoming a more well-balanced you. I've also had the honor of volunteering as the Race Director for Hope In Action MN!
Strengths Finder 2.0: Based on a 40-year study of human strengths, the Gallup®StrengthsFinder assessment measures you on thirty-four themes of talent and reveales your top five themes, and provides strategies to describe and develop these talents.
My Top 5 Signature Talents:
People who are especially talented in the Input theme have a craving to know more. Often they like to collect and archive all kinds of information
People who are especially talented in the Learner theme have a great desire to learn and want to continuously improve. In particular, the process of learning, rather than the outcome, excites them.
People who are especially talented in the Individualization theme are intrigued with the unique qualities of each person. They have a gift for figuring out how people who are different can work together productively.
People who are especially talented in the Responsibility theme take psychological ownership of what they say they will do. They are committed to stable values such as honesty and loyalty.
People who are especially talented in the Developer theme recognize and cultivate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from these improvements.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator provides a framework for understanding individual differences, and provides a dynamic model of individual development.
My Type Preferences: ENFJs
Warm, empathetic, responsive, and responsible. Highly attuned to the emotions, needs, and motivations of others. Find potential in everyone, want to help others fulfill their potential. May act as catalysts for individual and group growth. Loyal, responsive to praise and criticism. Sociable, facilitate others in a group, and provide inspiring leadership.
