What is Coaching?
Coaching is a partnership that supports you to center yourself and to connect with your purpose and passion. It invites reflection and inspires action to create positive, sustainable change in your personal and professional life.

Who is Abby Vieira?
I am a certified life and career coach, who has spent over a decade in leadership positions in community development organizations in the Bay Area and Guatemala. I've supervised and coached over 100 individuals, managed 20 member teams and designed, implemented and successfully managed a full service employment center. I thrive when I'm able to use my natural intuition, empathy and strength- based mindset to empower those around me to become the best version of themselves.

Like many of my clients, I turn to coaching during major life transitions. For example, after becoming a mom during the pandemic, while striving to keep a large social service program afloat, I completely lost my balance and sense of direction. Coaching helped me address my new identities, values and purpose. The journey led me to step back from a full-time job in the trenches, secure a more flexible job, and focus on building up my coaching practice. I now envision a future where I contribute to positive social change through coaching and still have the physical and emotional space to be the mama I want to be. I can speak to the transformational impact coaching can have, and feel blessed for the opportunity to pass it on.

I have a BA in International Relations from SFSU, a Masters in Public and Social Policy from Pompeu Fabra/John Hopkins University, in Spain and a Coaching Certificate from Blooming Willow/Leadership that Works. I am a Bay Area native, new mother, social justice warrior, salsa dancer, and runner.

Sunrise begins a new day, a new opportunity to create change.
