About-Us

 

Lyvia Feraco
Co-Founder, Content Producer, Life, Career, Executive & Image Consulting Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC)

Born in Madagascar, Lyvia moved to Paris when she was 7 years old.  She studied there and worked in communication, finance, and fashion for several French and US corporations like Goldman Sachs before moving to Boston in 2014, to marry her husband. 

This new start was an opportunity for her to reflect on her career path and decide what she wanted for the next chapter of her life. 

Lyvia loves people, is curious about human nature.  As far as she can remember, people have always come to her for advice or to just talk about life, choices, and perspectives.  She cherished the enriched feeling and learning she would get out of it. 

Lyvia likes to help people find happiness and engage with their Greater Self.  This was how she discovered a career that aligned with her life passion, abilities, and interests: a life and performance coach.  She chose Coaches Training Institute (CTI) - an ICF accredited school (International Coach Federation), partnering with Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate, as the program that aligned best with her values.  She’s been enjoying the powerful co-active coaching method as a tool to help people live their life to their fullest.

She has 2 sons, speaks French and English fluently, and practices Kundalini and Ying yoga and Transcendental Meditation.  She takes piano and singing lessons, takes acting and improv classes and does oil painting. She also likes to travel the world with her family.
