Welcome to my website! My name is Gayle Chaky. I have been a full-time accounting professor for over thirteen years. My passion has always been the time that I spent with my students in the classroom teaching and the time that I spent with them outside of the classroom listening to their hopes, dreams and aspirations for the future.

As the years went by, it became very clear to me that many of my Freshman students were confused about their motivations for attending college. I saw a huge, unmet need for coaching these students BEFORE they even applied to college. I jumped into that need and started training as a coach with Professional Christian Coaching Institute and opened my practice Knowledge of the Heart Life Coaching.

As a college transitions coach I enjoy working with students of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs. I offer seminars and one-on-one coaching via phone or video chat, encouraging and walking alongside you in your journey to college. I enable you to discover your inner values, purpose, interests and passions so you can set goals that are individually designed FOR YOU!

As a mother of two adult sons in their early twenties who both attend college, I have experienced the emotions and difficulties of watching my sons go to college and our shift at home to the “empty nest” that I now share with my husband, Joe, and pets Daisy, Jasmine and Rascal. As you can see, its not really an “empty nest” at all! I enjoy working with parents as they also make this life transition into becoming “college parents”!
