Miki Jo Resto
Seasoned Professional with a Blended Background
I’m Miki Jo Resto, the founder of Imagine Your Health™ and creator of our holistic proven approach, called Genspire™. I believe your career and life can be an adventure.
I help people meet (and exceed) their own inner call to action and, at the same time, achieve deep well-being that contributes to a journey well-traveled, satisfaction and joy.
In 1998 I went through my first program to become a professional transformation coach. It was then I found a deep passion for helping people become who they most want to be and live their best life. To that end, I blend substantial leadership and business experience with leading-edge transformation techniques and health coaching. As I’ve coached and trained thousands of people, I’ve developed a unique and highly effective approach that supports our clients to achieve their dreams – in life, health and business.
As a leader, I love innovating new approaches and finding strategic solutions to opportunities and challenges. I believe in holistic and systems-based solutions, and I personally practice the principles and practices I share with our community.
My career began in marketing, communications and business which helped me recognize my love for building new ventures from the ground up. Over my 25-year career, I have discovered that I’m even more passionate about serving people. Thus, came an inspiration to focus my marketing and business acumen with my passion for people into the talent management industry.
In business, my expertise focuses on developing people as individuals and teams. As a consultant, I specialize in:
- Executive coaching
- Leadership development
- Business development & key relationships
- Recruitment, hiring & talent management
- Strategic transformation
- Culture & employer branding
I have comprehensive experience in coaching leaders through creative problem solving and transitioning environments, including start-up, high growth, and mergers & acquisitions.
Transformative Health Coaching
Through all of this I’ve gained the experience to understand the vast opportunities and challenges of business and life and how they affect long-term health and our ability to enjoy the life we’ve built.
Today, leading-edge sciences connect positive psychology, epigenetics and transformation in amazing new ways. I’ve had the opportunity to blend my experience with modalities that understand these sciences. For example, I hold certifications for the highest standards of science-based health coaching.
Together, we can:
- Transform stress
- Create healthy and sustainable flow
- Optimize the mind-body-brain connection
- Heal chronic conditions and build resilience
