Lois Shenker, Life Coach & Jewish Advisor

I listen...

I believe listening is the most underrated skill in our society and one of the most important.

I will truly listen to you, not just hear the words you say.


About Lois

I love seeing changes in both clients and students from the beginning of the time we start working together until the end of that time. I can bring those changes to you too!

People tell me I am a great teacher, excellent listener, know how to keep a confidence, give non-judgmental support to those with whom I interact, and bring a positive enthusiasm to everything I do. My experience is that people trust me, respect me, and enjoy working with me.

These qualities benefit you as I hold you accountable for reaching your goals and taking you from where you are to where you want to be as your coach as well as your Jewish advisor.

My life experiences of several decades enrich me as a person and a professional. They include being married for 54 years to my childhood sweetheart and embracing our three children, their mates, 10 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren as my first priority and greatest blessing. My clients find my experiences provide practical examples of ways to answer questions and show that the path to a goal is not always a straight or obvious one!
