Drew Carey spent his professional career in health care marketing for Indiana’s largest health care providers. He led the branding teams for diverse hospital service lines including orthopedics, neuroscience, bariatrics and geriatrics, among others. He directed the rebranding effort when two of the region’s largest neurosurgery physician practices merged in 2010. He has extensive experience in marketing, branding, corporate communication and public relations.
He received his undergraduate training in journalism and has always considered himself to be a communicator above all else. Heeding a lifelong calling to enter into a helping profession, he completed a life and business coaching training program at Erickson College in 2012 and opened his own coaching business, Solution-Focused Coaching Services, in 2013. He took his own “leap of faith” and left his job in March of 2013 to devote himself full-time to coaching. Drew considers coaching to be a natural extension of his identity as a communicator.
Today, his clients are diverse, from college students trying to find their way in the world to retirees seeking to establish their “personal legend.” However, the vast majority of his clients see him for career coaching, mostly men and women in their 40s and 50s who have arrived at a point in their lives where work has become less than fulfilling – and usually frustrating, stressful and unsustainable. They seek to find their passion or rediscover it.
He completed the certification requirements and examination from the Center for Credentialing and Education to become a board-certified coach. He is a pending Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF), having completed all requirements and submitted his application for this credential.
In addition to marketing and communications, Drew worked several years as a corporate trainer. He became a master certified trainer and a certified instructional designer through Langevin Learning Services. Drew incorporates adult learning principles into all his workshops to ensure an engaging, stimulating experience for attendees. Drew’s natural humor creates a relaxed environment conducive to learning and an overall enjoyable experience.
