Meet The Founder and CEO, Dr. Shauntel Peak-Jimenez, Ph.D.
Director of Coach Training

Words From Dr. Shauntel Peak-Jimenez:

"After losing my job as a corporate nurse (due to corporate downsizing) in 2009, I took a giant leap of faith. I stepped out to pursue my dream of opening a inspirational company, dedicated to high-quality coach training, and through faith, commitment and perseverance I conquered that dream. Through my years of experience in coaching, education, consulting, mentoring, and my continued passion and dedication to making a difference, I bring my best to the field of coach training.

I feel extremely blessed that I was inspired to launch The Character and Self-Esteem (CASE) Institute. I am extremely humble and grateful to God for giving me this opportunity. I want to share God's love by letting his light shine through me, as it relates to bringing hope into the lives of others. I also want to be a inspiration to individuals by encouraging and empowering them to accomplishing their goals and dreams."
