Joanne Allen


Professional Bio: 

I have over 20 years’ experience as a top-notch Human Resources Professional working in the high-tech corporate world and as a consultant for small businesses. 

In My Words:  

As an over-achieving college graduate and spending years climbing the corporate ladder, I now know what it feels like to want more.  In 2006, I quit my corporate job, started consulting at a small business and spending more time with my husband and son.  Working part-time, volunteering at church, and asking God to direct me where He wanted me, I waited patiently for the answer.  In the meantime, my church offered me an opportunity to be coached by a Christian Life Coach.  The heavens opened and the answer fell in my lap.  I am a graduate of and received my certification from Christian Coach Institute, an ICF approved training program, and ready to be a light for God in this dark world.  My favorite scripture from the Bible is Psalm 46:10 “Be Still and Know that I am God.”  Often times I am juggling various aspects of my life ….. missing what God has put right in front of me.  He reminds me to “Be Still.”

Other Fun: 

Born in New Jersey as the middle child of seven (need I say more?) and spending my teenage years in upstate New York, I moved to sunny Florida in the late 1980’s.  I am an example of an ENTJ, D/I and C/D.  My top three spiritual gifts include administration/ruling, faith and encouraging/exhorting.   I have a tendency to laugh loudly, stay up late and complain I’m tired, I never say “no” and will shop till I drop.  I am a lifelong learner, horrible singer, I drive too fast (sometimes get caught) and love to talk (alot) and share life experiences.  I enjoy making faith-based jewelry, decorating, and entertaining friends and family in my home.  I am married to a wonderful man for over 25 years and have a son in the military.  We are empty nesters embarking on the next chapter of our life.

One Way Coaching, LLC


The concept for One Way Coaching, LLC was a team effort. After many discussions with my husband, son, family and friends, I wanted to create a business where individuals and small businesses could work and grow with me.  I am committed to help small businesses with their strategies and techniques to create business success.  For individuals, I help people move forward and set personal and professional goals that will give them the life they really want.

Coaching helps businesses and individuals:

  • Develop an action plan for growing both individually and their business
  • Foster focus and clarity regarding their vision
  • Manage their time wisely
  • Increase revenue
  • Prioritize their tasks so they know what to do first and when
  • Stop feeling “stuck”

One Way Coaching, LLC provides coaching to individuals, to teams/groups and to small businesses.  I also coach those who are self-employed.  In all, my goal is to help clients stay focused and motivated, and create lasting results.
