Camala Beek, CPC, ELI-MP
I am a lifelong learner who is fascinated with how communication and science impacts the way people think and act.
In college, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, but I knew that if I could communicate well with people, I could do anything, so I majored in Communications. I was a natural writer and so it made sense. Before long, I fell into marketing.
As a marketer, I learned how people can be influenced by words and colors, which was fascinating, yet there was a large part of me that had a values conflict with the content I was propagating. I yearned for a career that had more impact on people in a way that felt authentic to me.
As such, I was inspired to continue my affinity for communication by becoming a certified professional coach. With this training, I was able to deepen my understanding of how important communication-and our internal thought-is in our lives.
Along my personal development journey and coaching education, I discovered so much scientific research around the power of our thoughts and words and the impact it has on our lives. I realized that not only was communication a powerful tool in marketing, but that it’s the heartbeat of existence and all life, whether spoken or internalized.
Our words carry an energy that invoke emotions, which are the most powerful forms of change.
More About Me
My name is Camala, or Coach Cam. I am a certified professional coach (CPC) and Energy Leadership Master Practitioner (ELI-MP) through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, an accredited program by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
I graduated from Eastern New Mexico University with a BS in Communication and an emphasis in Public Relations, while also playing NCAA DIV II volleyball. After college, I moved to Germany where I worked in PR, Marketing, and Communications and also had the opportunity to play volleyball in the German Regionaliga and the Dritteliga.
In 2015, I returned to the United States, got a corporate job in marketing and moved to Saint Petersburg, Florida. After a few years, I decided to pursue coaching full time and started by own business. As a coach, I love helping people see the world through a different lens that allows them to confidently move forward and help others take control of their lives and live to their fullest potential.
