“Grow into your ideals so that life will not rob you of them.” – Albert Schweitzer
Seeker. Mother. Idealist. Humanitarian. Musician. Coach. Writer. Speaker. Facilitator.
British-born, raised in Nigeria and the United States, Yvonne Whitelaw is the quintessential idealistic, eclectic, third-cultured Renaissance woman. A wife and mother seeking balance in a driven profession with training as a physician and a master of public health, she soon found herself burned out and disillusioned with a life that was not aligned with her ideals.
Self-described as the “imaginary love-child of Schweitzer and Oprah”, she embarked on a quest to discover what it would take to thrive while living her ideals and making a positive impact in the world. As a Certified Daring Way Facilitator and Certified Personal, Leadership and Executive coach in Positive Psychology, she is passionate about using writing, music, speaking, coaching and facilitation to inspire a global tribe of wholehearted idealist warriors to “live your ideals, live your calling and change the world.”
