Dr. Jaime Kulaga is a “yes” woman turned Superwoman. As a licensed mental health counselor, certified professional coach and inspirational speaker, she has dedicated her life to helping women find balance and live their utmost fulfilled life.
Dr. Jaime’s unmatched self-motivation began early in life after the realization that her happiness, livelihood and success should never depend on someone else. This untamed drive, however, led her to exhaustion and over-commitment in the pursuit of keeping up appearances. When she learned to say “no”, her life transformed dramatically and she developed the foundation to her unique and significant life’s work.
For over 10 years, Dr. Jaime has specialized in individual life coaching, corporate business coaching and couples counseling, as well as educating at the university level. A dynamic motivational speaker, Dr. Jaime often addresses corporate executives and organizations on productivity, leadership development and employee/management communication skills. She is frequently featured in several of the Nation’s leading media outlets for her expertise in mental health and work-life balance – A few including Forbes, Maria Shriver’s blog, Glamour, Self, and Prevention magazines.
