More about Ro Elliott
Most of my adult life was centered around being a wife and a mother. I am beyond happily married for 41 years to Mark, the love of my life and high school sweetheart. I am the mother of 5 adult children all of whom were home schooled. In those early days, we were still hiding our kids from the public school truant officer until after the big yellow school bus passed in the afternoon. While I loved raising my children, it wasn’t until the last one launched that I realized I had lost myself in the process of being a mom. Feeling very adrift, I was left with the question: What’s next?
It seemed like all my life people would naturally open up to me, sharing personal struggles, family conflicts and relationship issues. So, counseling seemed like the right next step. Wonderfully, at 58 years old my journey of discovery began. The first big leap was traveling back and forth to Seattle for nine months earning my Level 1 Certificate in Narrative Focused Trauma Care at the Allender Center (The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology).
At this time, I was also becoming familiar with the enneagram and I started devouring information about my number. I can say without reservation, nothing helped me transform and grow like discovering my type. A passion starting burning inside of me. I wanted to help other women, especially in the second half of life, to start living in greater freedom. This lead me to become a certified enneagram coach.
Even though my early desire was to coach women, my first client was a 48 year-old male followed by an 18 year-old male (both enneagram 7’s !). Working with them only deepened my confidence in the power of enneagram work. It is a truly transformational tool for young, old and everyone in between.
I believe my many life experiences and educational training brought me into this wonderful space, enabling me to help others discover who God created them to be and guide them to the beauty of a fully flourishing life.
While at the Allender Center, I discovered the following words were to become the framework for my desire, my calling, my joy.

“As a leadership professional for nearly 30 years, I have taken part in numerous surveys and assessments, so I was skeptical that In would learn anything new when I engaged in coaching with Ro. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Ro brings a lifetime of experience and meticulous preparation to her coaching. Her approach helps you quickly identify places in your life where you’re stuck – whether it’s with your career, your family, or your relationships – and develop practical strategies to move forward. She’s direct. She’s caring. And she’s wise. If you’re looking to accelerate your personal growth and development, Ro is a fantastic resource.” Scott Dannemiller President, LifeWork Associates (Type 7)
What a joy it was to work with Ro and the Enneagram! Ro’s insightful questions, research, and observations have really helped me to exam myself and my responses to the world. She gave such great examples of how things might manifest and was so patient and gentle in her acknowledgment of my realized faults while at the same time being a champion of the gifts of my number. What rounded it all out for me though, was her expression of her deep faith in God’s love and grace and the reminder that I (we) can all rest it that. I can’t wait for some of my friends (and hopefully couples) to go through the process with her. Scott and I are scheduling our couples coaching now!Gabby Dannemiller, Enneagram 1
Ro Elliott did an excellent job unpacking my Enneagram test results. It was obvious that she’s very knowledgeable about all the different personality types, and she explained tendencies and motivations that go with my type in a clear, easy-to-understand manner. She provided insights that have helped me better understand myself, and she also encouraged me to make changes in areas that need some tweaking. In addition, Ro is a kind, compassionate person, and she doesn’t pass judgment.My Enneagram experience with Ro was a good one, and I highly recommend her services. Debbie H (Type1)
