Why Work With Me?

Hi, I'm Marcia Narine Weldon, Founder of Illuminating Wisdom, LLC

 I'm a unicorn.

I've loved every job that I ever had, and I've been a happy lawyer for 30 years. 

But I almost died more than once because I didn't know how to balance my personal and professional lives. 

I want to help you avoid the mistakes that I've made that have delayed my promotions, made my employees and peers miserable, and landed me in the hospital multiple times due to my inability to manage my stress.

I was always a high potential employee and a leader but my communication and leadership style derailed me until I learned the strategies that I now teach clients. I won't suggest anything to you that's theoretical.

The changes that I've made have literally saved my life and have transformed my clients' lives. Now, as a licensed Dr. Amen Brain Trainer, I use evidence-based techniques in coaching. I'm also trained or certified in: 

  • mindfulness facilitation,
  • emotional freedom technique (tapping),
  • hypnotherapy,
  • breathwork,
  • reiki,
  • the Happy For No Reason method,
  • NLP (neurolinguistic programming), and other modalities.

I'm a proud member of the Forbes Coaches Council, the International Coaching Federation, and the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology, and am mental health first aid certified. I also  administer the DISC, CliftonStrengths, and Hogan assessment instruments. 

 Most important, I’ve undergone executive and business coaching myself and know what works and what doesn’t.  

I’ve coached employees, executives, entrepreneurs, and board members for over twenty years, consulting on human capital, legal, compliance, and strategic issues for businesses and nonprofits of all sizes.

I’m also an award-winning law professor, general counsel of a sustainable startup and of a boutique law firm, business consultant, and blogger on corporate law and sustainability. (I'm also a speed reader, which helps me get everything done)! I know the science behind how people learn and change their behavior. 

 In a former life, I’ve served as:

  • the Deputy General Counsel, Chief Privacy Officer, Chief Compliance Officer, and Human Resources executive of a Fortune 500 company;

  • an attorney for large law firms;

  • a member of a federal government task force;

  • an ethics commissioner for local government;

  • a board member for various nonprofits; and

  • a business owner in the beauty industry.
