More about Katy Kloosterman
A little about me. I love to learn new things. I have a BA in Business and 30 years Human Resources experience with a focus on Culture Development. One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned over the years – there is power in our diversity. I am a Gallup certified CliftonStrengths coach as well as a certified Enneagram coach. I love the combination of strengths (how we do things) and the Enneagram (why we do what we do) as tools to help us grow in understanding of who we are and deepen our appreciation of the differences we each bring.
In 2015 I began the Soul Care certification program at the Soul Care Institute & Fuller Seminary Lifelong Learning Center. I completed my work with The Soul Care Institute in 2017. That experience allowed me to take care of my own soul equipping me to better encourage and develop others as they learn to discern the voice of their own heart. I continue to work with the Soul Care Institute as a host of the Michigan cohorts and serving as board chair. I recently graduated from Western Theological Seminary with a Graduate Certificate in Pastoral Care/Soul Care.
I am committed to walking with people on their development journey, by helping identify what is possible and create a plan to convert possibility to reality. My goal is to encourage, develop and equip others as well as myself as we continue to grow as individuals.
I love helping you see what is right about you and putting a plan together to develop and enhance your talents.
I am able to show you the big picture and potential places of integration
I am committed to doing things right and having a relationship built on trust.
I love meeting new people and hearing their story.
I love connecting people and resources for the greater good.
My experience, spiritual formation, faith and discernment leads me to join with executives, teams, individuals and students, as they engage in their personal journey of developing who they were designed to be.

“To be an effective strength coach and a soul care provider, (a wonderful combination to offer to others, by the way) you need a depth of relational experience as well as a foundation of excellent training. Katy uniquely has both. Her business experience and acumen coupled with her completion of the Soul Care Institute provides her with great depth that she will be able to offer to her clients.
