About Cathy Hawk:

I grew up on the East Coast, one of 4 children, and enjoyed a very happy childhood. My mother was a teacher and my father was an engineer and inventor. They raised me to be creative and adventurous. I attended University of Maryland, and graduated from Temple University School of Dental Hygiene. I had a successful 28-year career in periodontics, including an appointment to the WA State Dental Hygiene Board.

In my quest for a second career, I was looking for a way to help others discover the passion that I had experienced. It felt like a calling. Luckily, the profession of career coaching was in its infancy and I was immediately attracted to it and began my studies in that field. It was a perfect fit. Because there were few tools for coaching in those early years, I was inspired to create a tool kit to help clients find their passion and called it “Lights-On Learning.” That tool kit is a method for positive thought which integrates mind, body, and spirit for life and business.

That led me to become a trailblazer in the field of executive coaching. My award-winning books and courses have enlightened thousands of entrepreneurs for the past 30 years.

My husband and I work together to write our books and coach our clients. We have a unique partnership!

"The best way to explain Lights-On is… First of all, we all have ideas of things we want to create. Everyone has a hidden dream. Sometimes we make a choice to make a big change, get out and live a new and different vision or dream. When you get Lights-On is when you get a connection between an idea and you embody it. Everybody listening would know what that feels like. That feeling where an idea just ignites a fire within you is what I call Lights-On." - Cathy Hawk
