Anne Martin is a speaker, trainer, and Certified Professional Performance Coach® with the mission of empowering women to achieve meaningful success.
Anne grew up in New York City and practiced law for 15 years in such diverse environments as the U.S. Navy and Carnegie Mellon University. This was followed by a move to a large national law firm, where she practiced business law, focusing on high-tech businesses.
When she woke up to the fact that she was living a “lifestyle” and not really living her life, she decided to walk away from legal practice to design a life that allowed her to live her priorities.
She reinvented herself as an award-winning sales leader for Mary Kay Cosmetics, where she coached and trained hundreds of women in entrepreneurship, personal development, and leadership.
Upon moving to the Bay area in 2009, Anne reinvented herself into the coach she wished she had when she was considering leaving the legal profession.
