Hildie Dunn’s natural enthusiasm and incredible heart is well suited to coaching. Her spirit, while infectious and inspiring to her clients and colleagues, is balanced by her desire to see people through not only the victories, but also the roughest patches of their lives. Her mission as a coach with Handel Group Life Coaching is to empower people to live extraordinary lives and reach their dreams with joy and intention. That’s quite a tall order, but Hildie delights in the challenge.
Hildie received her bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in Education from LaSalle University and her master’s degree in Student Personnel Work with an emphasis on Human Development from The Ohio State University. She dove into the educational world and has been committed to educating and helping people of all ages flourish ever since. She was formerly a fourth grade teacher at St. John’s Ukrainian Catholic School in Newark, NJ and an Assistant Dean of Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA. Hildie then saw her opportunity to help adults continue to learn and evolve when she found intenSati. She so loved this powerful heart-mind-body fitness practice that she became an instructor. As Assistant Program Manager at Johnson & Johnson, she not only led intenSati classes, but also co-led their corporate wellness program.
Hildie is also a practicing nutritional counselor, educated at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and a certified personal trainer. She brings integrity and a unique knowledge of the body-mind connection to her clients. Hildie leads Handel Group events in the New York metro area, group telecourses and she privately coaches clients. She is a mother of three young adults and she lives with one bouncy chocolate Labrador and one little Shih-poo in Bridgewater, NJ.
“My life is dramatically different before and after Handel. Hildie is a HUGE component of my big life changes. She is consistently encouraging, never tires of repeating instruction, and gently kicks my ass when necessary. I almost can’t recognize the old me. Today I have increasing confidence and truly believe I am deserving of all good that comes to me. Thank you for a plan that works and for the most wonderful coach ever! I often think I’d be face down in a gutter without Hildie’s help.”- Melanie McFarland
