Background Experience

Leslie Hope Coaching was started by Leslie Holthoff in 2021 as a result of her own experience with a career coach. Leslie wrote her dissertation on perspectives of joint physical custody through the eyes of adults who have aged out of the two-home system. She holds a B.S. in Psychology from Old Dominion University and a Master’s degree and Ph.D. in Public Policy and Administration from Walden University. She is also a CDC Certified Divorce Coach, real estate agent, author, wife, and mother of two adult sons.

In addition to her educational experience, Leslie also survived teen pregnancy in 1994, a divorce in 2005, and the death of her father in 2017. These experiences brought change that she learned to embrace, including co-parenting in and out of the 50/50 joint shared custody arena for 27 years. Her teen pregnancy and subsequent parenting took her through mediation, parenting classes, multiple court cases, child support, and all types of custody. Her divorce was a life-changing occurrence that took her from the life she thought she always wanted to a completely new life she had only dreamt of. Her experiences turning a life destined for failure into a life of abundance have inspired her to help others embrace hope & happiness.
