Meet Kaelysia

Hi! I am Kaelysia Cooper, Founder of Empowered Coaching.

My vision for 2020 was to develop myself so I can be better equipped at developing others. I have completed the Executive and Professional Coaching program at UT Dallas. I am currently earning hours towards my certification.

I coach you, not your problems.

I empower you to make the changes you want!

You do the work.

You are not broken, therefore I am not looking to fix your problems. I simply and genuinely believe in your capabilities, knowledge, resourcefulness, and creativity. By unlocking your potential, you will discover that YOU can overcome the barriers you face on the journey toward achieving your goals.

I look forward to partnering with you on your coaching journey!

People who wait for a magic wand fail to see that they ARE the magic wand.

My Roots

I am a Baton Rouge resident by way of Louisville, Kentucky. I hear people ask me all the time, how did you get to Baton Rouge? I answered the call to serve. My move to Louisiana was driven by my interest in education and my passion for developing people. Despite my earlier intention to leave Louisiana, I stayed because I still have a purpose here.

When I am not working or studying, I love watching movies, going on adventures with my husband, and being a dance mom to my daughter.

Education + Training

I served several years with various non-profit organizations that focused on teaching literacy and basic math skills to youth and adults. It was a truly humbling experience that taught me to see the needs of the whole person. I strive to carry this lesson with me into the coaching experience.

In 2017, I earned a Masters in Human Resource Education and Leadership Development from Louisiana State University. I am an HR professional, who specializes in executive training and coaching.
